About Freedom Hill Winery

This estate dating back to 1699 once formed part of La Paris farm and concentrates on red wines which thrive in the oakleaf soils. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinotage are planted and only hand-selected red grapes from farm vineyards are used for the wines.

The original farm owned by French Huguenot, Francois Retief, was 414 hectares in size and rests on the slopes of the Wemmershoek Mountain between Franschhoek and Paarl.

The first vines were planted in 1997 and Freedom Hill Boutique Weddings & Winery eventually opened its cellar doors in November 2004 after Francois and Alida Klomp purchased it and moulded it into a boutique estate. The name stems from its unqiue location overlooking Victor Verster Prison, which is now called the Drakenstein correctional services facility, where Nelson Mandela first took his legendary steps to freedom.

All wines are matured for at least 12 months in oak barrels and the estate focuses on quality in a mere 6000 cases per year as opposed to quantity. One of our latest ventures was to establish a classic Cape vineyard style venue with the purpose of allowing others to experience memorable moments on our scenic estate.
