Oldenburg Vineyards is an independent family run boutique winery producing small quantities of red and white wine. Perched high-up in the Banghoek Valley and flanked by the Dwarsberg and Jonkershoek mountains above Stellenbosch, with vineyards arranged like puzzle pieces around Rondekop hill. The unique location benefits from the confluence of 8 natural elements (Indian ocean, Atlantic ocean, mountain ranges, mountain amphitheatre, cool winds, elevation, soils and Rondekop), creating distinctive terroir and allowing them to make wines that truly reflect their origins. Winemaker Nic van Aarde's mission is to ‘let the terroir talk’ by allowing the site to fully show and express itself. This is achieved by picking the grapes at optimal ripeness, minimal manipulation in the cellar and gentle extraction to produce balanced, elegant wines.
