We are the Soul of Sondagskloof

At Hermanuspietersfontein Wineries, we proudly introduce you to our talented and passionate winemaker, Wilhelm Pienaar. With a rich heritage in winemaking, Wilhelm follows in the footsteps of his father, a respected figure in the South African wine industry. Armed with two Master's degrees from Stellenbosch University and [France] University, Wilhelm has honed his craft over two decades, crafting wines for prestigious brands like Nederburg and Pongracz.

Wilhelm's winemaking journey is deeply rooted in his love for Right Bank Reds, with a focus on Wine of Origin Western Cape. Committed to excellence, he envisions our cellar becoming the premier producer of Right Bank Red wines in South Africa. Embracing a blend of old-world techniques and cutting-edge technology from France, Wilhelm creates wines that encapsulate tradition and innovation.

The accolades speak for themselves, with our wines being crowned Best Rosé and Best Cabernet Franc in South Africa in 2024. At Hermanuspietersfontein Wineries, we focus on producing the finest wines, making them available for sale only when they have reached the pinnacle of quality and maturity. Each bottle undergoes meticulous tasting and bottle maturation over multiple years, ensuring it is ready to be savored.

Among our standout offerings are "Kleinboet," a captivating Cabernet Sauvignon, and "Swartskaap," an award-winning Cabernet Franc. These wines exemplify Wilhelm's dedication to crafting exceptional Reds that showcase the terroir and essence of our South African growing region.
