About Akkerdal Estate

The owner and winemaker of Akkerdal wine, Pieter Hanekom, started a love affair with wine at a young age and tried many ways of creating it in high school. After learning from expert winemakers in France, he honed his craft and today we can enjoy the fruits of his talent. His masterpiece of Kallie’s Dream (a Rhone blend) was created as a tribute to his late father and role model, Kallie Hanekom.

Visiting the Akkerdal Estate in the breathtaking valley of Franschhoek is quite an experience. Before you even get the opportunity to taste their wines, you’ll pass mighty mountains, oak trees and the ever flowing Berg River. Winemaking is deeply entrenched in the heritage of the Hanekom family. They focus on red wines but have produced some of the following blends including Akkerdal Merlot, Petit Noir, Wild Boar and Passion White and Red.

The salmon coloured Akkerdal Sophia's Blush Rosé 2011 is a blend of Pinotage and Grenache Noir. It was originally planned for only a few cases. Enjoy alongside Lobster, Chicken, Quiche Lorraine, Soft-rind cheese like Brie or Camembert, Baked ham, grilled or sautéed pork chops, barbequed.
