Welcome to Stellenbosch Vineyards

Stellenbosch Vineyards is a leading wine producer and exporter set in the heart of South Africa’s wine industry - the picturesque Stellenbosch wine region.

Passionate about wine, committed to our partnerships and proud of our rich heritage, the story of Stellenbosch Vineyards dates back to 2004 when the merger of Stellenbosch Vineyards and Vinfruco took place on the historic Welmoed farm, one of the oldest proclaimed farms in the Stellenbosch district.

Internationally celebrated for our exceptional brands and pioneering performance, we work in partnership with our customers to produce innovative, branded and private label products. Exporting 80% of our unique portfolio of brands to 39 countries around the globe, we service a selection of customers within the FMCG and wine sales sector. Our brands include, The Flagship, Credo, Stellenbosch Vineyards, Four Secrets, Welmoed, Infiniti, Arniston Bay, Versus and Infusions. 

Celebrating our deep heritage, Stellenbosch Vineyards is now entering a new and exciting period in our journey. Our strategic intent and brand promise is reflected in our updated corporate identity and reestablished Stellenbosch Vineyards Collection of Fine Wines.

A sensory adventure awaits you as we share our story of courage, sophistication and passion through our wine and food experiences.

Start your journey by selecting your preferred Swirl experience - a pairing menu specifically designed by our chef and winemakers to showcase the marriage of our wine with food, or create your own experience with our vast selection of “To Share” dishes, each with its own wine recommendation, and for those that prefer to relax on the wooden deck with light snacks and a bottle of wine, we have the platter selection to choose from.

Swirl was created as a wine and food pairing venue to accompany our tasting room, showcasing our wines with an array of food styles and flavours. Our wine portfolio, ranging from lifestyle to multi-award winning, ensured that we had a good foundation to work with.

Our menus are designed to give you a choice of flavour profiles and textures to accompany your wine preference, and with our food philosophy being “To Share”, we encourage our guests to combine and share their wine and food with each other, creating a memorable palate sensation.

Meet Our Winemakers

Abraham De Villiers

Abraham's main task is to procure and blend the best possible wines for Stellenbosch Vineyards ranges, including big commercial sellers Arniston Bay and Versus. He's also involved in the barrel selection for the Credo and Stellenbosch Vineyards ranges.

He completed his Hons BSc in Oenology at the University of Stellenbosch and joined the company in 2004. Recently, Abraham also completed his SMDP at the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB). 

Abraham is also no stranger to accolades with a Best in Class at the International Wine and Spirits Awards for some of the earlier vintages of the Arniston Bay Chenin Blanc Chardonnay, proving that with careful winemaking, one can achieve excellence in a commercial brand.

"Every wine starts in the vineyards already with the selection of specific blocks. Each wine is tasted and blended so many times to get the right style that I lose count. Wine is as much a science as it is passion and trusting your instinct and your tasting capabilities."

Bernard Claassen

Bernard is responsible for primary production in the Welmoed cellar and oversees the whole winemaking process, from grape intake to bottle-ready wine. He completed his first harvest on Welmoed in 2000 while still a winemaking student at the University of Stellenbosch and joined the company in 2004. Recently, Bernard completed his SMDP at the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB). 

Some of his winemaking successes include the double gold Veritas stunner, the Credo Chenin Blanc 2010 and the limited release The Flagship Petit Verdot 2010.

His winemaking goal?

"Obviously one wants recognition for the quality of one's work and the way for this is probably to win a few accolades along the way. But honestly I just like to make great wines that always over-deliver and that can be enjoyed by everyone."
