The Wine Feature

The Wine Feature: Ken Forrester Wines

The historic farm Scholtzenhof is one of the oldest wine farms in the Western Cape and was originally granted as Zandbergh in 1689.

It is now home to Ken Forrester Wines which is situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa’s most famous wine region Stellenbosch.

We own more Chenin Blanc than the rest of the world.
