Dieu Donné is situated high on the steep south-west facing slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains, which tempers the sun. This ensures slow ripening of our grapes. Thanks to our cool summer conditions and unique soils from weathered granite with a rocky topsoil, called 'Greywack', the vines do not show excessive vigour, nor do they over-produce. These special soils do not get irrigated, further concentrating the flavours and characters of DIeu Donné's terroir in the grapes. These exceptional conditions give Dieu Donné wines their special character.
