Hoopenburg  Wines  –  Uniqueness in South Africa

Hoopenburg Wines, owned by the Schmitz family, is located in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands, encircled by the majestic Simonsberg mountain range, a region known as the Greater Simonsberg. This 80 hectare estate, where 35 hectares under vine, was founded in 1992 by wine maker Ernst Gouws and his wife Gwenda. Together, later joined by their children, with hard work and commitment they made a family dream come trough.  Since then, Hoopenburg Wines has won numerous top awards

The uniqueness of Hoopenburg Wines, is that its the only wine estate in South Africa where bush vines form 100% of the vineyard, resulting in a naturally lower yield and more fruit concentration. Nourished by pure underground water, the bush-vine vineyards produce grapes of exceptional taste and flavour. Believing in the principle of environmentally-friendly farming, Hoopenburg  Wines have converted some of their vineyard to organically grown blocks, while  the rest is farmed according to South Africa's IPW Scheme (Integrated Production of Wine).
