Anton Bredell

With his passion, perseverance and a talent to produce multiple award-winning wines, this humble giant of the wine industry...

Anton Bredell started his career as an agri-financial specialist and winemaker after obtaining his degree at the University of Stellenbosch. In 1988, he took over the duties as winemaker on the family farm Helderzicht on Winery Road in the renowned Stellenbosch winelands region.

In 1991, Anton bottled his maiden vintage port under his own label. This was followed in 1996 with the release of this first red wine under the now prestigious Bredell label. Anton has twice won the General Smuts Trophy for Champion wines at the S.A National Young Wine Show - in 1993 with a Cabernet Sauvignon, and in 1998 with his Vintage Port.

Anton chooses to exchange the strength and hunter's instinct he uses when spear fishing for the artist inside when working his wines in the cellar. With a policy of producing wines without additives, finings, or interference during the winemaking process, Anton is a firm believer in God's hand in both the cellar and in the vineyards. He also tries to capture "Yin and Yang" throughout.

With his passion, perseverance and a talent to produce multiple award-winning wines, this humble giant of the wine industry warns us that there may be few fireworks exploding from the Bredell cellar in the not-too-distant future!
