Oldenburg wines at Berry Bros. and Rudd
Oldenburg Vineyards in Stellenbosch, S. Africa, is located in what many consider to the premium wine growing region of the country. The vineyard is in the Banghoek Valley which means â€śscary cornerâ€ť due to that fact that it used to the stomping grounds of local leopards. Nowadays they have all but disappeared leaving the valley to the vines. The vineyard was originally a fruit farm founded in the 1950â€˛s which then became a vineyard in the 1960â€˛s. The family sold their grapes to other vineyards until 1993 when Helmut Hohman, the owner died. It wasnâ€™t until 2003 that the vineyard was revitalized by Adrian Vanderspruy, the current proprietor of Oldenburg Vineyards.
