“WINES OF TRUE STELLENBOSCH ORIGIN a Vriesenhof tradition”
The first Coetzee arrived in Table Bay in 1679. They acquired their first land in Stellenbosch in 1682 (today known as Coetzenburg) with some more land acquired later in the Jonkershoek Valley. They left Stellenbosch to explore the rugged West Coast at the end of the 1680’s. Jan Coetzee returned to Stellenbosch in 1963 to pursue his studies in viticulture at the Stellenbosch University.
A very important element of wine is the historical agricultural background. If the grapes feel at home in the land, they can tell the story that the land has written with a clear voice. In the 16th century Olivier des Sevres said, “Terroir is an alliance of soil and a complex network of plants and light.”
