"Alvi’s Drift wine is produced at the family-owned Alvi’s Drift Private Cellar.
Situated on the banks of the Breede River in the Western Cape of South Africa,
it has been owned and operated by the van der Merwe family since 1928.
The founder of the business was Albertus Viljoen (Alvi to his friends) van der
Merwe. After Alvi builds a ford across the Breede River to allow better access
to the family business, locals started to call the ford “Alvi’s Drift”. This ford now
gives it names to one of South Africa’s newest and most exciting wine labels."
