Overview
More
The name De Wetshof has been synonymous with the production of fine wines in South Africa since the 1970's. As the first registered wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, De Wetshof has become known internationally as South Africa's eminent Chardonnay House due to the pioneering role it played in introducing this noble Burgundian grape to the country.

Thanks, Heinrich for being such a great host and the overview of your amazing wines. Please do plan to spend less than two hours here. They have an enormous selection that deserves your time and respect (in not rushing).

We were very pleasantly surprised by our visit, the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the wines. Plenty of friendly staff, quick service and the wine tasting venue is very elegant. The grounds are stunning and perfect for a hot summers day.

Too bad the cellar is not open for visitors without a prior appointment, but both the driveway and the view of the estate are extremely nice photo opportunities. And their wines are simply divine :-) ...
