Hailing from the vineyards of Du Toit Family Wines, Knolfontein is a boutique range that reflects heritage, excellence and unique expression of the place where the vineyards thrive.

Knolfontein is the name of the farm that has been adopted for the range, also highlighting a legacy of excellence that has always existed on the property.

This wine that tells a rich story of knowledge, skill and passion passed on from one ancestor to another, and the legacy is still being built today.

For the launch, fourth-generation wine grower, Pieter du Toit, focused on three single-cultivar wines dedicated to those for which the Swartland is most renowned – Shiraz, Chenin Blanc and Cinsaut.
Each wine a mirror of its environment and history.

The labels of the wines help to tell this story through classic, timeless design. The Du Toit family envisioned a label that would mirror the quality and pedigree of the wine inside the bottle. It would represent elements of the Swartland region, but also family heritage. Among the details are three birds that are part of the Du Toit family crest – a feature that connects generations past, present and future to the legacy at Knolfontein.

Beyond the name, the history is in the walls of the farm buildings themselves. The tasting room is built in what used to be the farm’s wine cellar – a building estimated to have been built in the mid-1800s.

Visitors can experience it first-hand by booking for tastings hosted by Pieter himself. Available by appointment, Pieter hosts groups of up to 10 people on Saturdays.

The Knolfontein range of wines is available from the farm, via its online store and at selected local retailers. For more information, visit
