Translated, DeMorgenzon means simply ‘the morning sun’ and was so named because it is the first part of the Stellenboschkloof Valley to see the sun due to its high altitude and aspect. At DeMorgenzon since 2008, baroque music has been piped into the vineyards all day, every day. The effects of sound and music on plant growth is an intriguing subject, the energy of the sound waves rather than the sounds themselves serving to stimulate and nurture the growing vines. With winemaker, Carl van der Merwe, at the helm, DeMorgenzon are rapidly becoming the stars of Stellenbosch. Multi-award winners specialising in Chenin Blanc, they are THE name to watch in South African wine.
