Winemaking is a time-honoured tradition at Vredenheim, steeped in history. Owner Elzabé Bezuidenhout was the first female winemaker in the Stellenbosch Wine Route, making her first wine in 1987 and remaining as Vredenheim’s winemaker for the next 13 years.

Today, Vredenheim’s cellar team is headed by winemaker Kowie du Toit, with 30 years experience in winemaking and management. Previously the winemaker at Vlottenburg (today known as Stellenbosch Hills), Kowie has been working as a consulting winemaker for the past 10 years.
Vredenheim has a wine for every palate, with our sparkling Vredenvonkel, Sauvignon Blanc, Purrrfect White, Rosé, Pinotage, Merlot, Shiraz, Reserve (Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz blend), and white grape juice for the little ones. View our wine ranges here.
We offer wine tastings at our estate, as well as cellar tours. Visit our Tasting Room page for more information.
