Neethlingshof lies in the very heart of the Cape’s winelands in the Stellenboschkloof, flanked by the Bottelary Hills and Papegaaiberg Mountain just outside the town of Stellenbosch.
There are many natural conditions which contribute to the production of the fine, characterful wines at Neethlings and the variety of cultivars grown on Neethlingshof gives the winemaker, De Wet Viljoen, an enviable opportunity to craft a variety of fine wines and exciting and award winning blends.
The Neethlingshof Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest has been awarded the trophy as the South African National Champion Noble Late Harvest for eight consecutive years - a record in the wine industry! More recently this same wine has won a Veritas Gold Medal while the Lord Neethling Pinotage has been listed in the ABSA Top Ten list of Pinotages - three times in the last five years.
Neethlingshof shines as brilliantly on the international front, showing that the wines from this estate appeal to palates around the world, just as much as to those at home. Judged Best South African Wine Producer of the year at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London in 2002, Neethlingshof is fast becoming a benchmark for excellence.
The estate itself is well worth a visit. Driving up the imposing stone pine avenue, a beautiful vista unfolds complete with pristine Cape Dutch buildings, rolling green vineyards and a cosy cellar where the full range of wines may be tasted and purchased.
