Welcome to Rust en Vrede

Welcome to Rust en Vrede

For 320 years Rust en Vrede has stood peacefully among the vineyards of Stellenbosch.  Through centuries there were periods when wine was produced, but for the last 32 years our family have specialized in producing only red wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot.

Many accolades have been bestowed upon the estate and some of the more memorable were when Rust en Vrede was chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and hosting the Queen of Denmark for a lunch with my family at the Manor House. Rust en Vrede was nominated as the first South African red wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World and repeated this achieved for four consecutive years.

About Us

Our Wines

Our Wines

First to specialize in the exclusive production of red wine only, Rust en Vrede is now South Africa’s Premium red wine Estate. Our full-bodied, new-oak matured wines are a manifestation of the supremacy of the Stellenbosch region when it comes to the making of truly great red wines.

Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of this and continues to pursue the excellence that has characterized wines from Stellenbosch and specifically our private Estates, who undoubtedly are the heartbeat of this magnificent region.

The Restaurant

The Restaurant

The original cellar, a National Monument built in 1785, has been converted and our kitchen is placed “front and centre”, thus creating an ambiance that is relaxed but vibey. An experience of the perfect matching of food, wine and service awaits you. The food is based on classical French cuisine with modern influences, using the best quality local produce. This is matched with our extensive and sophisticated wine list with selections to match every palate.
