Silver MYn wines come from the Zorgvliet Estate in Banghoek Valley, a small subregion just 4 miles outside of Stellenbosh. The area is home to dangerously steep land and you can still find leopards in the mountains. Grapes are grown on the dangerously steep slopes of Simonsberg Mountain in vineyards that are among the highest in Stellenbosch. You can even still find leopards in the mountains. The folks at Zorgvliet can handle it, though. In fact Zorgvliet, pronounced ‘Sorg-fleet’ means ‘no worries’.
