The first vintage of Vondeling Wines made from our own grapes was in 2005. There are now approximately 100 hectares of vineyard mostly planted to Mediterranean varietals. Most are planted in granitic soils and on cooler south west facing slopes. The older vineyards which include Sauvignon Blanc planted in 1983 and Chenin Blanc in 1986 have come into perfect balance over the years and provide some of our most valuable fruit. On average crop yields range between six to eight tons per hectare.
