The exceptional terroir of the Voor Paardeberg ward, as well as the grapes cultivated in the area, has been the source of various international wine awards. It is the location of this ward that makes it so unique. The mountain slopes of the Paardeberg, together with the soil composition and prevailing winds, create a specific quality in the grapes. The wines produced at Ayama have the potential to be part of the elite wines of the country.
