Vondeling Wines, Winery with 300 Year-Old Winemaking Tradition

Vondeling Wines is located on the slopes of the undiscovered and rather large Paardeberg Mountain. The word Vondeling means “foundling” and is located roughly forty-five minutes from Cape Town. Swedish immigrant, Oloff Bergh, was granted the estate in 1704 and thus began a 300 year-old winemaking tradition. The winery is now owned by Anthony Ward, Julian Johnsen, and Richard Gower. The winemakers use eco-friendly and environmentally sensitive techniques in their vineyards and cellars to protect nature and produce wines that showcase the features and unqiue qualities of the region.

The Perfect Spot for the Cultivation of Vines

Vondeling Wines’ vineyards are present on the south facing slope of Paardeberg Mountain. The warm climate, optimum rainfall, temperature, and soils provide the perfect spot for the cultivation of vines. The main varieties of grapes that grow here are the Chardonnay, Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Viognier Red and Muscadel, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Mourvedre, and Grenache Noir. The best quality grapes are handpicked and go into the production of their world-class red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winemakers keep the process natural, and therefore intervention in the winemaking porcess is minimal.

Stunning Views Providing the Perfect Location for Events

There are stunning views of the vineyards and hills in all directions. Witness the surrounding nature from the top of the Paardeberg Peak, you will also find an original Signal Cannon there that was earlier used to communicate about a ship’s arrival to the farmers. Vondeling Winery also houses a historic Cape Dutch homestead, St. Clament’s Chapel, a wedding venue, a consecrated church, and their beautiful tasting room providing a perfect location for events and celebrations.
