With Cape Bordeaux-style blends globally recognised as one of South Africa’s leading wine categories, Vondeling Wines of the Voor- Paardeberg Region, just outside Paarl has made its mark as one of the leading producers of this revered wine-style. Not only did the Vondeling Philosophie 2019 garner a 97point, five star-rating, but the wine was named Red Wine of the Year in the Cape Bordeaux Blend category of the Platter Wine Guide 2024.

Just off Voor Paardeberg Road in the distance we found a beautiful white chapel that leads to a picturesque scene: the ever-changing leaves of the vineyards.  The tasting room is cosy with a rustic appearance and classic country charm. Greeted by the sounds of a crackling fire, a glass of wine and inviting laughter, immediately made it feel like home.
