For 315 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch. The company and the estate is now headed up by Jean Engelbrecht and their family have specialized in producing only Red Wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot. The underground cellar of the estate was the first of its kind for a privately owned South African winery. Designed by renowned architect Mr Gawie Fagan, the perfectly temperature controlled environment is of invaluable benefit to the production and bottle maturation of unique wines. Rust en Vrede is a remarkable example of exquisite landscaping. At home and abroad, this unassuming Stellenbosch Estate has made a name for itself far beyond its modest, but infinitely charming, 55 hectares.
