Viljoensdrift nestled south of the Elandsberg Mountains, on the banks the Breede River, the lifeblood of the Robertson Wine Valley, is home to the Viljoen family whose heritage of winemaking dates back to 1818 when their French Huguenot forefathers first planted vines. Today brothers Fred and Manie Viljoen continue this proud tradition and, after humble beginnings in 1998, they are producing award-winning wines with global appeal.
Wine tourists can expect much more from Viljoensdrift than just a taste of their distinctive wines. A visit to this peaceful haven, a mere 90 minutes from Cape Town, also promises an inspirational riverside experience including a relaxing boat trip on the tranquil waters of the Breede River, a taste adventure from the deli, a gourmet picnic on the banks of the river and a shopping spree with a vintage twist.
