Namaqua Wine is one of the country's largest wineries and a company whose brands have been among the bestsellers locally and in the UK. It is a grower-member operation that was established in 1947. It substantially increased its footprint in 1992, when it started exporting abroad. Further growth came in 2002 with the amalgamation of the Vredendal and Spruitdrift cellars. The winery is named after the Namaqua West Coast region that is its home. The winery's visitor centre is Die Keldery and includes a restaurant serving traditional dishes along with its wines.
