The estate on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills has a long history and came to vinous prominence in the late 1970s under the Montagne label, producing top-end Shiraz. It was acquired in 1987 by the Mackenzie family with the appointment of Carl Schulz in 1994, initially as winemaker and then director two years later. Hartenberg's expansive underground cellar was commissioned in the 1980s and plays gallery to twelve artworks by German coppersmith, Karl Heinz Wilhelm. They took two years to complete and describe each of the twelve phases of cultivating and producing wine.
