Eerste Hoops means ‘First Hope’ in Afrikaans. It is positioned in one of the most fertile areas of South Africa and quite a new wine estate. In the eighteenth century the Cape’s Governor, Willem Adriaan van der Stel call these lands First Hope whilst the early pioneers planted their grapes along the banks of the Botrivier.

Together with a perfect climate and cool ocean breeze blowing into the valley, Eerste Hoop grapes can ripen and wines are created. The grapes are hand-picked and processed using a combination of modern and more traditional methods. Philipe Constantius assumes the role of winemaker at the farm and has his hand in every part of process from the planting of vineyards to the creation of wines in the cellar. Both bottling and labeling take place on the farm.

Eerste Hoop pays great attention to detail when it comes to their bottles, labels and corks used and ensure that each offering is a fine one. Their range includes an Eerste Hoop Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pinot Noir as well as Witklip Chardonnay, Shiraz, Blushing Bride Pinot Noir Rose, Lodewijkx Blend and Stillfontein Chardonnay Bag-in-Box.
