Our Philosophy – A Sense of Place
Oldenburg Vineyards is located in the Banghoek Valley situated in the mountains above Stellenbosch. Our neighbours include Thelema, Tokara, Delaire, Bartinney, Camberley and Rainbows End. We have approximately thirty hectares of vineyards, with Rondekop hill as the centrepiece.
If one had to find a single word that best describes our overall philosophy it would be balance. We realise that we are very fortunate with our terroir and know that we need to work in balance with nature as it is central to who, what, and where we are. Balance in the vineyard is essential to capture the best nature has to offer and equally we strive to make wines with great balance, complexity and elegance.
We strongly believe that the success of our wines will ultimately come from realising the potential that our vineyards and nature have to offer. Also, great wines will ultimately come from optimising each vine’s ability to produce grapes with the correct balance of acidity, sugars and physiological ripeness.
One of our core beliefs is that wine is an encapsulation of what nature does best. We believe that by working closely with nature we can ensure a consistent high standard of quality. This must be done with sustainability in mind.
