In Their Words
Oldenburg History & Location
8 Kilometres from Stellenbosch, on the road to Franschhoek, you will find us off the beaten track, at the end of a winding road that leads deep into the Banghoek Valley. Our unique location benefits from the confluence of 8 Natural Elements which create a distinctive terroir, allowing us to make wines that truly reflect their origins.
Situated in an elevated valley of outstanding beauty, Oldenburg Vineyards is surrounded by a spectacular mountain amphitheatre. Our vineyards are arranged like puzzle pieces around Rondekop Hill. This centrepiece affords us a 360 degree perspective on our terroir – something quite unique.
Our philosophy is less is more – our intervention in the vineyards is minimal, allowing the grapes to benefit from the influence of our cool climate, diverse soils and mountain terroir. The natural beauty of our surroundings inspire us to practice sustainability in every step of our approach.
Our breathtaking views set the tone for an unforgettable experience and we invite you to relax in the serenity of our surroundings, connect to our sense of place and truly understand our wines.
