Seymour Pritchard bought an estate Malvern Heights in 1969 from Colonel JW Billingham, who named it in honor of the hilly terrain around Malvern in his native England. When Seymour became interested in wine in the mid-1980s, France was still in the center of the universe of wine, and so he decided to change the name of the estate in the French style - Clos Malverne. For many years, until 1985 the estate Clos Malverne supplied grapes to the winery Stellenbosch Farmers' Winery. However, in 1986 the economy was produced 800 bottles of wine Cabernet Sauvignon, which turned out so good that Seymour Pritchard decided to take wine seriously.
