Vaalvlei Wines

Stanford is a very special place in the world of wine. Varied soils enables production of a variety of wines ranging from vibrant whites to elegant reds that lean towards the old classic styles.

Stanford's unique "four-seasons-in-a-day" weather patterns can startle you and challenge wine growers. This maritime climate contributes to a unique terroir.

Vaalvlei farm, 9km north-east of Stanford is owned and worked by the Terblanche family. The 3ha vineyard is planted on "koffieklip" and sandstone soils and the proximity fo Walker Bay can also be observed in our wines.

Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz grapes are produced here in this new and exciting wine producing area and are used to make handcrafted wines.
