Lanzerac – Stellenbosch
Steeped in history dating back to 1692, Lanzerac Wine Estate is a historic landmark, synonymous with old-world charm and rich Cape heritage. Positioned in the idyllic Jonkershoek Valley on the outskirts of the historical town of Stellenbosch. It was at Lanzerac that the first commercially produced Pinotage was available, a 1959 vintage released in 1961 having been originally developed in Stellenbosch in 1925 by crossing Pinot Noir with Hermitage also known as Cinsault. Wines are currently produced at Lanzerac by winemaker Wynand Lategan under the guidance of Boets Nel of De Krans fame.
