Whether it's the personal dedication and vast experience of Rugby legend Jan Boland or the unique conditions of the Paradyskloof Valley, Vriesenhof undoubtedly provides wines of a superior, natural quality.
Forget the flash, minimise the fuss and remove the ego. This is the motivation behind the winemaking of Vriesenhof, a homely estate located in the heart of Stellenbosch's Paradyskloof valley. Entirely without pretensions, the farm offers a tradition of winemaking based on a solid partnership with nature, an innate respect for the earth and an ongoing quest for quality that begins in its rich shale soil.
Vriesenhof is characterised by an authentic approach to winemaking, all honed to perfection by its master winemaker, Jan Boland Coetzee. Best known as a rugby legend with a killer scrumming tactic, Jan Boland is also often dubbed the "Father of Pinot Noir" and his influence on Vriesenhof is felt everywhere - from the handpicked grapes to the personal care taken during the vinification process.
