The Essence of Baleia Wines

Baleia Wines are not just beverages, they are a testament to the harmony between nature and meticulous craftsmanship. The uniqueness of the Baleia vineyard lies in its pure, solid limestone soil, which is rich in minerals. This soil, home to the rare Canca fynbos, imparts a distinctive chalky minerality and maritime salinity to the wines, creating a unique mouthfeel that is both intriguing and delightful.

Vineyard Philosophy

At Baleia, the winemaking cycle begins with consistent attention to detail in the vineyards. The use of advanced technology, such as soil probes and NDVI scanning, allows for fine-tuning of the vineyards, ensuring the perfect amount of stress that brings balance and longevity to the vines. Baleia believes that healthy soil promotes healthy roots, which in turn promotes healthy vines that produce beautifully balanced fruit.


The winemaking philosophy at Baleia is all about portraying the unique aspect of the site. The wines are true to their terroir and can be identified by their very specific mineral and maritime character in a blind tasting. These inherent qualities are allowed to take centre stage in the wines because minimal intervention is used in the cellar to ensure that the natural beauty of the fruit is not clouded.

The Baleia Wine Range

Our range of Baleia Wines includes the elegant Baleia Chardonnay, a crisp wine with elder flower and lime blossom aromas, almond biscotti and light oak flavours on the palate. The natural salts found in the soils present a delicate sensation of minerality in Baleia’s food-driven wines and prepare the palate beautifully. Creamy Italian pasta dishes are this Chardonnay’s perfect companion.
