Stellenrust was granted in 1692 to Douwe Gerbrand Steyn. Steyn was pivotal in the establishment of the East Indian Spice Route. He did not only oversee the building of the Castle of Good Hope as master stone mason, but was also one of the first to plant vineyards and make wine in the Cape. He registered the Stellenrust ‘finding rest in Stellenbosch’ trademark in 1928.
Many moons later, Stellenrust still boasts being one of the largest family owned wine estates in South Africa carrying through generations of winemaking skills.
Stellenrust harvests from about 400ha (200ha planted) of which half is stretched over the Golden Triangle area of Stellenbosch, internationally recognized for some of the best red wine soil in South Africa. The other half is situated high up in the Bottelary Hills, renowned for its cool climate and late afternoon sea breezes swooping in from Cape Town to nurture both excellent white and red wines.
