Owner Elreda Pillman runs Goedvertrouw Wine Estate and continues to live the dream which she shared with her late husband Arthur. You’ll find it along the Van der Stel Pass between Botrivier and Villiersdorp.

The house she lives in on the working farm was built in 1820 which makes it one of the oldest houses in the area. In the beginning of the 19th century, the old bell in the front of her house was used to gather the slaves from their farms and signal the train’s arrival from Cape Town bringing fresh vegetables.

The farm house is now a Bed and Breakfast and the current wine cellar still has the ‘skietgatte’ (shooting holes) from the Anglo Boer War. Elreda has planted four cultivars from Pinot Noir to Pardoemps- a blend of Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage. Enjoy the incredible views down into the valley, take a strolling in the elegant gardens and enjoy some bird watching. While sampling some of their wines, enjoy Elreda’s homemade meals on the porch in summer or within the tasting room and lounge beside the fire in winter. Be sure to taste their hand-labelled wine, freshly baked bread and farm-churned butter.
