Reni Hildenbrand bought Klein Rhebokskloof which was in much need of repair, she worked hard, got creative, restored the farm and followed her dream of becoming a winemaker. Its all about quality at Hildenbrand, Reni believes that wine is not just about its taste but where it comes from, thus ensuring that the entire process is handled with care. The Hildenbrand Estate's range of wines are vegan friendly, there are no fining agents like gelatin or egg whites used in the wine making process.
When the farm was bought it already contained 3000 olive trees. Reni saw this as an opportunity and wanted to put the olives to use. She has spent some time in Tuscany and so decided to try her hand at making olive oil. Hildenbrand Estate uses organic methods of farming, pressing and preserving olives. This is also the only estate which produces an unpressed extra virgin oil. Today Reniís Olive Oils are sought after.
