Situated in an elevated valley of outstanding beauty, Oldenburg Vineyards is surrounded by a spectacular mountain amphitheatre. At the heart of the farm lies Rondekop – our iconic, round hill which influences the vineyards planted on and around it, creating our extraordinary terroir. 8 Kilometres from Stellenbosch, on the road to Franschhoek, you will find us off the beaten track, at the end of a gravel road that leads deep into the Banghoek Valley. Our unique location benefits from the confluence of 8 Natural Elements, creating distinctive terroir and allowing us to make wines that truly reflect their origins. Our philosophy is less is more – our intervention in the vineyards is minimal, allowing the grapes to benefit from the influence of our cool climate, diverse soils and mountain terroir. The natural beauty of our surroundings inspire us to practice sustainability in every step of our approach.
Our winemaker, Anton Malan, treasures Rainbow’s End’s unique terroir. He has no desire to place our wines into a specific category of conventional wine style (such as Old World or New World styles). We treat each vintage year separately and make what the season and the specific terroir of a specific vineyard block offers. Every year we adapt our winemaking techniques slightly in order to ensure the best possible result irrespective of a particular style. We create a unique product and wine style annually – the best that the season can offer.
