Vriesenhof in the Stellenbosch wine region is a family-run winery. The estate with the peacock in its logo sees itself as a modern, unconventional company and reflects this in its wines.

Panorama of Vriesenhof area

The beginning of Vriesenhof Vineyards

The Coetzee family immigrated to South Africa in 1679 and settled in the region around Table Mountain. Although they have owned land since that time, in the 1960s Jan Coetzee was the first of the family to study viticulture and turn his knowledge into a business. in 1980, he acquired the Vriesenhof estate. in 1987 friends bought the neighboring Talana Hill farm, and just a few years later the two merged to form what is now Vriesenhof Vineyards . in 2006, all but a small patch of Pinotage was replanted to the entire estate.

Nature makes its way

The Vriesenhof team sees itself as servants of nature, freely following the motto that nature creates and man only guides. Accordingly, the Vriesenhof wines do not bow to any trend, but present the terroir, as well as the year and the challenges that the plant had to overcome. At a time when everyone is urged to go their own way, Vriesenhof embodies this philosophy and gives the wines their space to develop on their own.

The Vriesenhof team

Vriesenhof's vines

Initially, we started with the grape varieties:

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Cinsault 
  • Pinotage

Soon Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc followed. The last to join the Vriesenhof familywas Pinot Noir. While Jan Coetzee still runs Vriesenhof and oversees the winery today, he has handed over the winemaking business to Nicky Classens, who first earned his spurs in France and most recently honed his skills under Jan Coetzee's guidance. 

Vriesenhof and the rhino

A special position in Vriesenhof 's portfolio has been created by Conservation, a Bordeaux-style cuvée that supports a conservation project to save South African wildlife, specifically the rhino. As a sign of this support, the rhino also adorns the label of this wine.
