Our Story

Oldenburg Vineyards is located in the Banghoek Valley (pronounced Bun hook and meaning "scary corner" due to leopards roaming around in times past) about 8 km from Stellenbosch.

Oldenburg Vineyards is an independent family run boutique winery aiming to make some of the finest and most respected wines.

Due to some heritage, careful planning, and a large amount of good fortune we are the custodians of a small corner of Stellenbosch, tucked away in the mountains in an area known as Banghoek. We believe we have some of the finest terroir in South Africa, with some magnificent views, and a truly unique and beautiful setting.

We handcraft small quantities of both red and white wines, using only grapes from our estate. Careful study of our soils, temperatures, wind variations and sunlight aspects led us to planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, plus a few interesting blending varietals.

Central to our belief is the fact that great wines only come from the highest quality grapes. What happens in our vineyards needs to be without compromise in order to deliver the potential offered by our mountain terroir. The stunning natural beauty of our location helps to inspire us to take a sustainable approach to the vineyards, our business, and the surrounding environment in general.

We believe that by sharing our farm with the many visitors that arrive, whether for a unique Cellar Door experience or for a stay at the stunningly situated Homestead, we are investing in the guest experience which enables them to connect with the vineyards and better understand our wines.

We also feel it important that those who work on the farm, their families, and our local community all need to grow and benefit from the journey that is Oldenburg Vineyards.

We invite you to share the beauty of our farm, our accommodation, our wines and our hospitality, and we trust you enjoy them as much as we do in providing them.

Adrian and Vanessa Vanderspuy and the Oldenburg Vineyards team.
