Rust en Vrede was established about 315 years ago by the Cape Governor Willem Adrian van der Stel. The homestead was built in 1780 and the cellar in 1785. The front Cape Dutch gable had to be rebuilt in 1825 due to an earlier fire which destroyed it. The Engelbrecht family moved onto the farm in 1977 and their family has been growing grapes ever since and specialized in red wine production of Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot.

Jannie Engelbrecht made the very first R&V wines in 1978. Jean Engelbrecht runs the estate now and co-founded Engelbrecht Els Vineyards with Ernie Els.

The estate produces 20 000 cases per annum and only 30 % is sold within South Africa.This estate has many great achievements including building the first underground cellar of its kind in South Africa, being selected by Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and nominated as the first South African wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World.

You don’t want to miss out on their restaurant either which boasts as Eatout Magazine’s Best Restaurant in South Africa, San Pellegrino Top 100 Restaurants in the World and Great Wine Capitals of the World Best National Restaurant.
