In the early 1700’s Theunis Bevernagie settled in a fertile valley guarded by the towering Witzenberg and Winterhoek mountains, and fed by the Klein Berg River.
His name was to be enshrined in local wine lore. For in 1927 Theuniskraal was bought by the Jordaan family, specifically for wine making. In 1948 Andries Jordaan launched the estates’s first Riesling – and a South African icon was born. Just two years later Theuniskraal Riesling took gold at the Commonwealth Wine Show against international competition. Andries’s sons Kobus and Rennie continued the tradition of fine Riesling, extending plantings with other classic varieties, both white and red. Today, their sons Andries and Wagner carry on the family’s hands-on quality approach to wine making.
