In 1923 Johan Abraham van Zyl and his wife, Wilhelmina, settled on the
undeveloped, rugged mountain ridge of the Piekenierskloof.  Some 40 years later, in 1962, their son, Carel van Zyl, planted some of the first vineyards in the Piekenierskloof.  Today the fourth generation of van Zyl’s celebrates their heritage with unique wines made from meticulously farmed and lovingly managed vines, some more than 60 years old. Fondly dubbed the ‘Grenache HQ’ amongst wine lovers, the Piekenierskloof not only boasts one of the largest Grenache plantings in the Cape, but its extensive collection of old, unirrigated bush vine vineyards have stood the test of time and continuously deliver exceptional wines.

With its vibrant orange top – reflecting the Dutch origin of our name and the region’s citrus farming history – and the Piekenier showcased on each label, our wines clearly embody all that we stand for: – new beginnings, family legacy and history, plentiful harvest, enjoying the fruits of our labour, peace and liberty.

Naturally, all of us at Piekenierskloof Wines were overjoyed by the impressive Decanter GOLD our Piekenierskloof Grenache Noir 2020 received at the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards back in June.

Over the past two years Piekenierskloof Wines has racked up more than 70 accolades behind its award-winning wines, but of the more recent acknowledgements, the one that stands out is the highly coveted 2022 London Wine Competition prize for their Bergendal Chenin Blanc 2020, ranked Gold in ‘The Best Wines by Country Award’.

On 18 September 2021 the world was introduced to the newest addition to the Piekenierskloof Wines family, and, if we may say so ourselves, she makes quite the impression.
