About

Made by the winemaking team at Rust en Vrede, proprietor Jean Engelbrecht and winemaker Roelof Lotriet have produced this sophisticated range in homage to the town of Stellenbosch and its rich heritage. Two of the wines are named after iconic Stellenbosch buildings, designed by German architect Carl Otto Hager in the late 1800s. The Moederkerk, or Mother Church, is arguably Stellenbosch’s most beautiful church, a clean, white, towering example of neo-Gothic architecture which was completed and consecrated in 1863. Ou Hoofgebou, meaning Old Main Building, was built following a desire to erect a monument in commemoration of the town’s bicentenary in 1879. Part of the University, Ou Hoofgebou marks the importance of education in the town. Vanderstel Red Blend is named in tribute to Simon Van der Stel, first Governor of the Cape.
