Beneath the towering presence of Stellenbosch’s famous Simonsberg and Jonkershoek mountains, where dairy cows use to graze, you’ll find the rolling vineyards of Vrede Wine Farm. Vrede is situated against the eastern slopes of the Bottelary ward. This is widely regarded as South Africa’s premier wine region and the farm is indeed blessed with excellent wine growing conditions.
A mild, Mediterranean climate prevails and during summer, generous sunshine is tempered by cool breezes blowing in from the nearby ocean. The breezes create ideal, slow ripening conditions, allowing the grapes to develop rich varietal character and an intense concentration of flavours.
Vrede Wines offers wine sales, cold storage and a function venue including conference facilities. The wine tasting can be enjoyed overlooking the vineyards from the wooden deck of the new tasting facility.
