A magnificent estate lies nestled in the fertile bowl of the Helderberg Mountains.

A magnificent estate lies nestled in the fertile bowl of the Helderberg Mountains.

Established by Willem Adrian van der Stel in 1700, the proud winemaking traditions of this estate were revived when it was purchased by Dr. Christo Wiese in 1998. Extensive research and planning has indicated that five hundred hectares of the best cultivars will ultimately be planted on the choicest slopes.

The property also boasts a brand new wine cellar utilising technology unique in the Southern Hemisphere, and already pressing more than 1500 tons, where dedicated wine makers ply their trade. Meticulous selection of grapes, combined with minimum handling, and the use of gravity during vinification, form the basis of a singular philosophy of quality.
