Viljoensdrift nestled south of the Elandsberg Mountains, on the banks the Breede River, the lifeblood of the Robertson Wine Valley.
Today brothers Fred and Manie Viljoen continue this proud tradition and, after humble beginnings in 1998, they are producing award-winning wines with global appeal.
Viljoensdrift’s success can be attributed to their pioneering spirit, the quality of teamwork from vineyard to cellar and their deep-rooted commitment to working in harmony with nature. Five generations of Viljoens have lovingly toiled the fertile deep alluvial, calciferous-rich soils fed by the life-giving Breede River which allow the vineyards to flourish. The terror lends itself exceptionally well to the growing of noble varietals such as Shiraz, Pinotage and Chardonnay.
Wine tourists can expect much more from Viljoensdrift than just a taste of their distinctive wines. A visit to this peaceful haven, a mere 90 minutes from Cape Town, also promises an inspirational riverside experience including a relaxing boat trip on the tranquil waters of the Breede River, a taste adventure from the deli and a gourmet picnic on the banks of the river

Dear Viljoensdrift team, Thanking you very much for making the river trip very special on our 37 years wedding anniversary! The wine tasting prior departure was lovely, the shop had such a variety of delicacies that after the trip we purchased even more cheese and wines, the Skipper on the ferryboat was incredibly accommodative and kind. Well done to all and hope to see you in years to come! Best regards, Alex and Victoria
