Hermanuspietersfontein Wines

The first wine farm in the Walker Bay Wine District, and the 11th in South Africa, to receive BWI Champion status.

Our winemaker, Bartho Eksteen, receives the Oscar of South African Wine Industry: Diners Club 2010 Winemaker of the Year, for Nr.5 Sauvignon Blanc, the first time a wooded Sauvignon Blanc receives the coveted award

Die Bartho, the wine named after our winemaker, receives 5 Stars in Platter’s 2010 South African Wine Guide 

Our winemaker Bartho Eksteen is a.k.a. Monsieur Sauvignon Blanc (by Platter Wine Guide), Sage of Sauvignon Blanc (by wine writer Neil Pendock) and Sultan of Savvy (by wine writer Graham Howe) 

The first wine farm in the cool climate, premium wine- producing Sondagskloof Wine Ward 

For two years running our single varietal Cabernet franc, Swartskaap, receives the coveted SA Terroir Award recognising it as the best in the country (2006 and 2007) 

We brought back the concept of the Saturday morning community market where locals meet and greet – the first wine cellar in South Africa to do so


Our popular Food and Wine Market receives up to 1800 visitors on a Saturday - making us the busiest wine cellar in the Overberg and one of the most visited in South Africa 

We've hosted important events, such as Afrikaans magazine DE KAT’s 25 birthday celebration 

Our cellar yard is the finish line of one of the largest sporting events in the region, the annual Houwhoek Mountain Bike Tour. 

As a cellar, we brought back to the region and community the original name the village was given in 1855, "Hermanuspietersfontein " 

Bartho accepted into the Cape Winemakers Guild in recognition of his high standards of craftsmanship - the pinnacle of South African wine achievement.
