In Their Words
Guardian Peak History & Location
Located off the scenic R44 road between Stellenbosch and Somerset West, Guardian Peak is named after the towering peak which dominates Stellenbosch Mountain.
The Estate was founded in 1998 by Jean Engelbrecht, who combined his knowledge of international wine markets with his experience at his family wine estate in Stellenbosch, to create a range of everyday-drinking, fresh and approachable wines. Two decades later, we pride ourselves on producing sustainable wines of consistent quality that are friendly and easy to enjoy.
A lifestyle without wine is incomplete. Our ‘Live with Wine’ philosophy is built on our firm belief that wine and food should be inseparable in our daily diet – it being not as much a matter of appreciating wine with food, but rather the enjoyment of wine and food. We trust that our wines and our food will fulfil the latter.
