About Lammershoek Wine Cellar

Lammershoek means ‘lamb’s corner’ and is said to owe its name to the sheep and their lambs who sought safety and shelter in the forests around the farm when they felt threatened by the ‘lammervanger’ otherwise known as the Black Eagle.

The very first vineyards were planted on the farm in 1750 and when a man by the name of Desiderius Pongrácz visited the farm, he spurred the owner to plant some interesting grape varieties. These included Harslévelü, Tinta Barocca, Carignan and Grenache Noir and to this day some of the oldest vines of these varieties can be found on the farm.

The farm is owned by Paul and Anna Kretzel who run the farm with their business partners Günther and Sieglinde Stephan.

96ha are planted under wine and ones which perform well in the sandy, granite soils of the Swartland including Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier, Harslévelü, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Carignan, Grenache, Mourvedre, Pinotage, Zinfandel, Tinta Barocca, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The farm began organic farming in 2010 and move forward with a more natural approach to farming where the work is done by hand with minimal interference in the cellar.
