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.

Friendly assistance on a blistering hot day. The sommelier handled some unruly guests with respect and kindness. Very impressed by the patience and professionalism shown to guests.

De Wetshof is called the House of Chardonnay and it’s not difficult to understand why. They have some of the best Chardonnay in the country

We visited De Wetshof on 29 December 2016. I was really looking forward to tasting all their wonderful terroir-driven Chardonnays. I booked the tasting for our group of 7 family members with Heinrich, he was extremely friendly and helpful and did the most wonderful tasting with us, he engaged with everyone around the table and made the tasting fun and...

A brief look at the photos will tell you this place is beautiful. The tasting is done in old world elegance. Our wine steward was Heinrich and he was out standing. He was personable and made us feel welcome and comfortable. Heinrich is studying to be a sommelier - so we benefited from his in-depth knowledge and suggestions for things... More

We stopped by for a quick wine tasting but arrived with 2 other small groups already there. Only one fellow on duty so our tasting was very slow. Chardonnay's are great. The main lounge is nice but a little out of place (pretentious) for Robertson Valley which we found so friendly and welcoming in all other respects.

The Pinot Noir at this place blew us away. We like our Pinot Noir ig and bold. Most SA pinots are soft and weak, more like dark rose' than real red wine. Well De Wetshof has an amazing pinot that stands up for itself. The best we found in SA.

A must visit to do some great tasting of their excellent Chardonnays and top Bubblies! This is where you'll find out the amazing value and quality of Chardonnays! Beautiful Thibault architecture, tasteful interiors and hospitable hosts!

We visited De Wetshof estate close to closing time and still we were warmly welcomed. They shared the history behind their fantastic Chardonnay and what a Chardonnay that is. We bought some of their pino noir chardonnay and enjoyed that with our dinner that evening. What a great way to end off our Robertson trip.
