WELCOME TO ANDREAS WINE ESTATE
Nestling in the Bovlei Valley, just outside Wellington, the Andreas Wine Estate is a hidden gem comprising 4.5 hectares of vineyards, an elegant eighteenth-century house and lush gardens. It’s the ideal base from which to explore the winelands and Cape Town area.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the site of Andreas was occupied more than 300,000 years ago by the Acheulean people. More recently, Andreas was one of the first Huguenot settlements in the valley and the estate resonates with historical charm and elegance from this era.
Long, hot summer days, cooled by late afternoon breezes, chilly, wet winters and decomposed granite and shale combined to provide the perfect terroir for Andreas’ award-winning Syrah. Small, dark and flavoursome berries are at the heart of this noble cultivar, transformed into magnificent wine in our cellar.
In 2015 the estate was acquired by a group of U.K. wine enthusiasts under the banner of Andreas Wine Trading. Their ambition is to build on the heritage and reputation of the estate and its wine, taking both to new levels of excellence.
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the luxury accommodation offering at Andreas is temporarily closed. We hope to re-open late in 2022
Led by Winemaker Shaun Meyeridricks, Andreas’ small team are dedicated to raising Andreas’ award-winning Syrah to new heights of excellence
