ZOETENDAL WINES

A tradition of pride and excellence forms the foundation for the inspirational wines created by Johan de Kock at this boutique cellar, Zoetendal Wines. Throw into that a hefty helping of passion and grounded friendliness so common in the Strandveld, and the result is an exquisite range of wines, whose elegance is set to captivate palates worldwide.                                                                    
Situated on the banks of the Nuwejaars River, 3km East of the picturesque mission village of Elim, and only 20km from the southernmost tip of Africa – where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet - Zoetendal Wines, established in 2004, is the product of Johan de Kock. To date Zoetendal’s vineyards have given rise to two exquisite wines: a Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz.
Zoetendal’s participation in the unique Nuwejaars Wetland Special Management Area initiative also cements their commitment to sustainable farming, and by maintaining the diverse ecology of the Nuwejaars wetland in accordance with international standards, they have been declared ‘an area of excellence and good practice’. This unique factor, combined with the true warmth and hospitality of the people of Elim, makes indulging in the Zoetendal Wines a truly exceptional drinking experience that masterfully encapsulates the Elim Winegrower’s slogan of, ‘Real wine, real people’.
