Oldenburg Vineyards is located in the Banghoek Valley, just a few kilometres from the town of Stellenbosch. This region is considered the premium location for making high quality wines in South Africa. We make small quantities of both red and white wines only using grapes from our property. Careful study of our soils, temperatures, wind variations and sunlight aspects led us to planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Merlot, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc plus a few interesting blending varietals. Central to our belief is the fact that great wines only come from the highest quality grapes. What happens in our vineyards needs to be without compromise in order to deliver the potential offered by our magnificent terroir here in the mountains. We have a strong belief that the natural diversity of the Cape, in particular its geography, soils, climate and other physical attributes allow a complexity that is critical in exciting wines.
