The Wetshof Estate in the Robertson Region - 160 km from Cape Town - is South Africa's best known Chardonnay home, and makes a wide range of wine styles from this versatile grape variety. The winery has a balanced portfolio of special and highly distinguished wines from vineyards and cellars where the latest technologies and traditional no-nonsense wine and winemaking techniques go hand in hand.
De Wetshof is located in the Robertson Valley between the Riviersonderend and Langeberg mountains, where the Breede River flows to the southern coast of the Cape. Today, Robertson has developed into one of South Africa's most successful wine regions. The rich loamy soil near the Breede river and the lime deposits on hill and mountain slopes further inland make the region suitable for a high quality and wide variety of grape varieties. Robertson is less than a hundred miles from the ocean. The climate with warm, sunny days and cool nights, is ideal for wine growing.
De Wetshof has a state-of-the-art cellar that is computer-controlled and uses gravity techniques. There is also a spectacular cellar that houses the best oak barrels, where the beautiful wines can mature.
Danie de Wet experiments a lot with new techniques to further improve the quality of the grapes. He is participating in a weather station project and is investigating the water evaporation in the soil of the vineyards and from the vine leaves of the vines. De Wetshof specializes in making Chardonnay. Danie's beautiful creations have inspiring names such as Bon Vallon, Lesca and d'Honneur
