Ken Forrester Vineyards

Ken Forrester Vineyards is situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa's most famous wine region Stellenbosch; our vineyards are commonly referred to as the Home of Chenin Blanc and other premium award-winning wines.

Ken Forrester’s philosophy has always been to create a range of handcrafted, individually made wines that suitably complement a wide variety of food styles and provide excellent value and drinking pleasure.

We believe that our viticulture is world class and we practice sustainable, organic viticulture, we make our own compost, we grow winter cover crops between the dormant vines, we use ducks to control snails and insects and we manage yields according to the potential of the soils and the vines, we do not believe that stress is a good practice in the vineyards or in life!

We pride ourselves in offering you a personalised tasting experience. Visit our cosy tasting room with marvellous views of the Helderberg Mountain. We welcome guests throughout the year. Find your way to us to have fun, engage your senses and enjoy tasting the ranges on offer. 

While tasting our wines, enjoy a Dalewood cheese platter in the tranquil setting under the oak trees with views of the vineyards and Helderberg Mountain. 

Ken Forrester Vineyards draws wine lovers who enjoy quality wines and the friendly atmosphere of the farm.
