About Vriesenhof Vineyards

Vriesenhof has a history dating back to the early eighteen century where its south facing slopes are perfectly positioned to produce wines of a fine character. The estate has plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinotage and small block of Pinot Noir. You’ll find it between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch mountains amidst the Paradyskloof Valley.

Three ranges of superb wines are produced including the labels of Vriesenhof, Talana Hill and Paradyskloof. Jan Boland Coetzee is the wine maker of the estate and he has ensured that the position of each variety is planted in the ideal position.

The Pinotage bush vines are planted atop the hill where the shale soil enhances the fruity flavours. Pinot Noir need less sun and is planted lower down whilst the Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted on the slopes sides. The Paradyskloof range is made of easy-drinking wines

Paradyskloof wines are intended to be accessible and light-hearted; they exceed their expected level of quality by leaps and bounds. Vriesenhof and small property of Talana Hill joined forces in 1992. It has plantings of Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc vines whose vines were first planted in 1983.
