Koelenhof Wine Cellar is situated among vineyard-covered slopes, 14 kilometres outside the beautiful town of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It is a geographical location that attracts wine lovers from all over the world. We invite you to take a leisurely ride or drive along the Bottelary Hills wine route (R304). On your journey, you will discover in Koelenhof Wine Cellar a winery with an unwavering commitment to creating premier-quality, yet accessible wines.
South Africa is loved for her generous hospitality and unpretentious spirit. It is our vision to capture this character in every bottle of Koelenhof wine – a character to be sampled and savoured time after time.
Koelenhof Wine Cellar emerged from humble beginnings as a bulk wine producer. The grower-owned winery was established in 1941, with the De Vries family at the helm. Members of the family continue to play an integral role at the winery, supported by a dedicated team of staff and loyal partners. Today, Koelenhof presses an impressive 16,000 tons of grapes every year - the fruit of the labour and commitment of 70 local shareholders.
Despite earning an enviable array of awards, Koelenhof remains humble in spirit. Recently, Koelenhof received top honours as South Africa’s Best Value Cellar Overall in WINE Magazine’s Best Value Wine Guide. Koelenhof’s own label wines succeed in offering the ever elusive combination of superb quality married with excellent value.
The sustained success of Koelenhof Wine Cellar is attributed to the passion and dedication of all its amazing staff and partners. Among these, there are a few individuals who fulfil key leadership roles. These include general manager, Andrew de Vries, winemakers Martin Stevens and Elsa du Plessis, distribution warehouse manager, Schalk du Toit, and bottling manager, Christie Swart.
Additional key functions are performed by logistics/stock controller, Hendrik le Roux, marketing specialist, Andrew de Vries, laboratory manager, Liezel Coetzee, and Jessica Basson who heads up aspects related to tastings, sales and venue bookings.
