Set alongside Hudson’s Restaurant, our Tasting Room is the perfect place to enjoy your first introduction to Vredenheim’s range of wines. Offering seating at the counter or at large tables, we are able to accommodate groups of any size, from romantic tastings for two to tour group visits.

Our Tasting Room also shares the stage with our Gift Shop, giving guests the perfect excuse to browse around whilst enjoying a wine tasting. From calendars and curios to jewellery, toys and art, and everything in between, there’s really something for everyone!

 

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. For more about the history of winemaking and farming at Vredenheim.

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, Rosé, Pinotage, Merlot, Shiraz, Gracious lady (Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz / Merlot blend), and white and red grape juice for the little ones.
