Vondeling’s Viticulturist, Magnus Joubert, is working his 7th vintage at Vondeling this year. This gentle giant grew up on a wine farm in Stellenbosch and as a result, wine grape growing runs in his veins. He obtained a qualification from Elsenburg Acricultural Training Institute in 2000 and has been working as a viticulturist in the wine industry ever since. Magnus lives on Vondeling with his wife, Ciska, and their two daughters, Mia and Lisa. When he’s not tending to our…

In Full Flight! 2019 Vintage 

Greetings, Vondelingers Due to bucket loads of sunshine, the 2019 vintage here at Vondeling is well under way. Some very nice Chardonnay was picked to begin with, followed by Sauvignon Blanc from vines planted in 1981 and 1983, giving some tremendously juicy and sumptuous flavours.

Paardeberg Country Wine Tasting Experience

Happy New Year, Vondelingers I hope you had a great festive season and got some juicy Christmas presents. We are now preparing for harvest and the grapes are looking reasonable. We will probably pick Chardonnay for the Rurale, our sparkling Methode Ancestral, next week. Already this January we have bottled 2018 Chardonnay and we will be bottling 2017 Bowwood and 2017 Philosophie on January 30th. So its all systems go.
Riki joined the Vondeling team in June 2015, lending a helping hand in more areas than just the tasting room and now manages the Vondeling Wine Club. She studied Cellar Management and Viticulture at Elsenburg and although she loves the inside of a cellar, she prefers the inside of the tasting room. “I love people. And I love sharing my knowledge of the journey from the vine to wine with visitors”, says Riki. When not behind the tasting room counter…
Vineyards have always intrigued Emile. Growing up in the Northern suburbs, Emile and his brother took it upon themselves to visit as many wine farms as possible. This vinous education saw him in good stead, and a passion was ignited to learn more about what makes wines from diverse regions taste so comparatively different. Emile married his wife, Hilani, in our St.Clement’s chapel and their first pink foot, little Anna, made her appearance earlier this year. The trio lives happily…
Mariaan started at Vondeling in 2012 and has been an indispensable part of the development of the tasting room. “This place is in my blood,” she says with a smile. Her duties began at the tasting counter and is now the driving force behind the multitude of functions, weddings and lunch concepts, such as offering visitors the chance to experience a traditional South African braai, complete of course with braai broodjies and malva pudding. In a nutshell, if you have…
