Wildehurst Wines is a boutique cellar in the small town of Koringberg, Swartland, South Africa. They produce hand-crafted white, rose and red wine in two ranges. The Velo range consists of fruit driven, well balanced easy drinking wines while the more premium Wildehurst range is more complex.

Joanne Hurst, the owner, planted a garden vineyard consisting of 90% Shiraz and 10% Viognier vines in 2006. In 2009 she produced her first wine, The Wildehurst Red, by co-fermenting the Shiraz and Viognier and aging the wine in French oak barrels for 18 months. To date the Wildehurst Red remains the flagship of this boutique cellar and Joanne’s vineyard never seems to disappoint when it comes to quality.
At the end of 2013 the business grew to the point where it was necessary to appoint a full time winemaker and with a degree in Oenology and Viticulture, Sheree Nothnagel, joined the winemaking team.

All of the grapes are hand harvested from selected sites in the Swartland. They do not add any acid, commercial yeast or commercial enzyme, choosing to rather let the wild enzymes and yeast take over. The Swartland Independent seal on the bottle reassures the consumer that they are keeping with these practices.

Wildehurst Wines produces between 10 000 to 12 000 bottles of wine annually.
