The name De Wetshof has been synonymous with the production of fine wines in South Africa since the 1970’s. As the first registered wine estate in the Robertson Wine Valley, De Wetshof has become known internationally as South Africa’s eminent Chardonnay House due to the pioneering role it played in introducing this noble Burgundian grape to the country.
The De Wet family’s winemaking heritage can, however, be traced back to 1694 when the first De Wets arrived at the Cape and immediately made a mark on the South African wine industry.
The De Wetshof Estate has turned it’s incredibly rich wine heritage into some of the best wines in South Africa. To name a few notable wines. The De Wetshof Limestonehill Chardonnay is an exceptional unwooded chardonnay matured on the lees. Other wines worth mentioning are the Thibault Merlot with a dash of Cabernet sauvignon or the Naissance Cabernet Sauvignon.
Today, De Wetshof is one of the few third generation wine estates in South Africa. Here Danie de Wet, proprietor and cellarmaster, is assisted by sons Johann (viticulture and marketing) and Peter (winemaker).
