The Villiera Cellar
The Villiera cellar is functional and spacious. As wine production has increased, the cellar has expanded to accommodate this. The first foundations were laid in the early 1940s and since the Grier family purchased Villiera in 1983, additions to the cellar have almost been an annual event. read more »

The Family
The Grier family is into it’s third generation as a family business. Grandfather Grier arrived in South Africa from the United Kingdom. He studied at Elsenberg and started an egg business. The second generation took it a step further and were involved in starting County Fair, an added value poultry business. The third generation were more interested in what to drink with poultry and started a wine business (Villiera) in 1983. read more »
