Our picturesque Neethlingshof Wine Estate in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands is flanked by the Bottelary Hills and Papegaaisberg Mountains. Along with the awe-inspiring manor house, our estate is steeped in history which dates back to 1705 and distinguished by the beautiful avenue of stone pines.
It's a place where soil, climate and vines co-exist in perfect harmony. We're blessed with 13 distinguishable terroirs and by choosing the correct site; we've been able to enhance the natural flavour and aroma of our range of wines. Our estate's also a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI), highlighting our commitment to eco-sustainability. 28 ha of the 110 ha wine farm (under vine) is set aside for conservation and the replanting of the indigenous Renosterveld species with the aim of restoring the natural balance and encouraging wildlife, big and small, in this area.
Our Range of Wines
The Neethlingshof reserve tier, the Short Story Collection, draws attention to Neethlingshof's rich and varied narratives based on our estate's philosophy or history.
- The Caracal, our flagship red blend, celebrates the return of the rooikat to the unique ecosystems surrounding our estate's granite hills.
- The Owl Post, a single-vineyard Pinotage, draws attention to our estate's integrated pest management including the strategic placement of owl posts as part of our focus on production integrity.
- Maria is the new name for the acclaimed Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest and honours Maria Magdalena Marais, the resourceful and fiesty young widow responsible for developing a vibrant and viable farming operation.
Combining the enduring beauty of the past with a modern and highly functional lay-out, the Neethlingshof Wine Estate is a space in which to relax and allow yourself the time to savour our extensive range and buy the ones that tickle your fancy. If you'd like to spend an afternoon in beautiful Stellenbosch, visit us and delight your taste buds by trying out our range of Neethlingshof wines.
As well as sampling 6 varietals or exploring our cellar, we also offer you the opportunity to enjoy "A Flash Food, Slow Wine pairing". Our winemaker spends months crafting and nurturing superb wines, but that doesn't mean they can't be enjoyed with bite-sized portions of fast food with a twist! Imagine chicken and cashew noodles served with our Gewürtztraminer or Madagascar pepper burger with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon!
