A mathematical term for the space formed when two semicircles are placed within a larger semicircle, with all running off the same baseline. Archimedes found that the arbelos held some interesting and often surprising qualities.
And so it is with Arbelos, where good wines meet naturally.
When two of South Africa’s leading bulk wine producers, Botha and Slanghoek Cellars, founded in 1949 and 1951 respectively, both with proven track records locally and internationally, share a common vision and start blending their facilities, experience and expertise, the result is a producer which respects the wisdom of the past but is determined to play a definitive role in the future.
Arbelos is a place where wine growers, producers, distributors and retailers share their knowledge and passion for the industry to produce something of significance.
Arbelos can be found in the majestic Breedekloof Valley, about one hours drive from Cape Town. The region was awarded “wine of origin” status, producing wines of exceptional quality through the Breedekloof’s diverse climate, soil type and the influence of the mountain slopes.
There is more to the Breedekloof than award-winning wineries. The Breedekloof is home to a wide range of outdoor activities, offering scenic cycling and mountain biking trails, crystal clear streams provide one of the best trout fishing areas in South Africa and the craggy mountains, fynbos and bird life attract hikers wishing to enjoy the abundant beauty of the area.
