A maiden voyage from Europe on 3 October 1752 was the start of a legacy and set in motion the story of the 2nd oldest wine estate in South Africa owned by the same family. Each of the seven generations contributed in their own unique way since 1822. "A golden thread runs through our history, reflecting a boldly individual approach, a strong set of values and a long-term focus.
Since 1994 there was more focus on the international markets and today more than 80% of our wines are exported. Currently it is my responsibility to create more opportunities for generations to come and to tell the story." — Kobus Deetlefs Tie second oldest family-owned wine estate in South Africa, Deetlefs is steeped in seven generations of history since 1822.
