Yonder Hill Wine Estate in Raithby, Stellenbosch Rural, Western Cape
Finely Handcrafted Wines
Yonder Hill Wine Estate is perfectly situated just outside Somerset West and only 15 km from Stellenbosch. A Wine Farm where visitors can easily turn into regulars, providing a peaceful retreat for wine lovers and nature lovers alike.
The Estate of 13 hectares is situated on the lower slopes of the Helderberg Mountain and the vineyards are comprised of two main cultivars namely, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Smaller plantings of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are also found on the Farm. The ripening process is different to that of Farms found closer to Stellenbosch because of the sea breeze and harvesting takes place three weeks later here.
The cellar was first build in 1993 and then renovated again a few years later. The wine barrels are of French Oak and the underground cellar can hold up to 800 of these containers, each with a capacity of 225 litres. The Estate produces three red wines, the Nicola, Inanda and Merlot and all three wines are matured here.
The Farm has a warm and friendly atmosphere and the views are breathtaking. Yonder Hills is the perfect outing in this beautiful, tranquil and relaxing area of the Western Cape.
