Wines are made by Raka Wines in which works only with grapes grown on their land. It was founded in 1982 by the Dreyer family bought the estate, Remhoogte south east of Hermanus Akkedisberg area, 17 kilometers from Stanford in a valley in the mountains of Kleinrivier, crossed by the river Klein (Kleinrivier), next to the district Walker Bay, cooler than traditional growing areas of Cape Wine. Due to its location on the slopes of the mountains Kleinrivier, has a wide variety of soil types, altitude between 58 m and 120 m and its proximity to the sea breeze brings the Indian Ocean that reduces summer heat. During 1999 the Dreyers planted 10 acres on both sides of the river Klein, grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz and thereafter several acres were added each year, with vines and rootstocks chosen to suit the type of soil , reaching the current 68 acres. Among its features crop varieties: Pinotage, Sangiovese, Viognier, Mourvedre, Petit Verdot and other newer plantations of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Sauvignon Blanc. Piet Dreyer has been lifelong fisherman all his life over the years went from being a fisherman to Raka freezer shipowner. It takes its name from the Afrikaans poem NP van Wyk Louw, about an African tribe threatened by Raka, half beast and half man as black as night. When he founded the winery, recovered the name and motto of the winery: "born of the sea, guided by the stars, blessed by the earth." For about 36 years, have faced the challenges of nature with the help of a skilled workforce, the winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern winery equipped with modern technology, where the movements are carried by gravity. They produce a wide range of wines, red and white varietal and blended, light and elegant that transmit the entire expression of terroir.
