Hazendal

Hazendal Wine Special

About the farm An intriguing mix of Russian heritage and South African tradition is what sets Hazendal Wine Estate apart, and adds a wonderfully novel dimension to a day in the Winelands. The Russian-born Voloshins, who own the farm, have brought the culture and customs of their birthland to the Cape, combining them with an overarching Cape Dutch aesthetic so prevalent in this corner of the Winelands.
The wine Crafted for everyday enjoyment, the award-winning Christoffel Hazenwinkel range pays tribute to the eponymous pioneer who founded the wine farm in 1699. Today, winemaker and viticulturist Clarise Sciocatti-Langeveldt follows a minimalist approach in the cellar: “I don’t want to over-work the grapes, but rather allow the fruit and terroir to shine through.”
