Annandale is the oldest farm in the Helderberg Valley. Nine years after Governor Simon van der Stel first discovered Stellenbosch on horseback, was Annandale granted to Jan Wismaar. The cellar built before the 1700s can still be found on the estate as well as the manor house. For a long period in the early 20th century it had 50 000 vines and part of the land became a haven for abandoned horses and a riding school. It was only in 1996 that owner Hempies du Toit once again transformed it back to a wine farm.

The former Springbok’s estate has won wine awards world-wide including the Grand Prix d’Honneur award in 1993 at a wine expo in France. After first meeting Charlene Wittstock during her competitive swimming days, years later her father asked Hempie to bottle some Annandale wine for her royal Monaco wedding. He chose the Annandale’s 2005 Merlot which had matured in French Oak for six years and because it was the year the couple met. Walk beside the river flowing through the estate and sit beneath the trees planted by Simon van der Stel in the 1600s.
