Rustenberg’s rich heritage and ethos has been informed by many centuries of human influence striving to understand and work with nature to produce wines of distinct character true to their terrior, variety and informed style. Founded in 1682, Rustenberg is nestled in the valley of the Simonsberg in South Africa’s premium wine region – Stellenbosch.
The first record of wine being sold off the property can be found in the form of a receipt for brandy sold to a midwife in 1692.
With a long and very proud history of producing exceptional wines, Rustenbergs winemaking style is simple: Produce quality wines true to the style of the estate and the brand.
Vineyards producing the grapes for Rustenberg wines climb the rich red slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg. The style of wine determines the vineyard to be used: Rustenberg has a history of success with reds, while fresh, fruity whites come from Nooitgedacht, a wine farm overlooking False Bay.
