About the Winery
Established in 1694, Rust en Vrede is proud to be part of a remarkable three hundred year-old wine tradition. Since 1977, the Engelbrecht family has specialised in the exclusive production of red wine with the focus on Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Proprietor Jean Engelbrecht has worked to establish Rust en Vrede as one of South Africa’s premium red wine estates with full-bodied and complex wines that reflect the uniqueness of the Helderberg terroir.
Many accolades have been bestowed upon the estate and some of the more memorable were when Rust en Vrede was chosen by President Nelson Mandela to be served at the Nobel Peace Prize dinner and hosting the Queen of Denmark for a lunch with the family at the Manor House. Rust en Vrede was nominated as the first South African red wine in the Top 100 Wines of the World and they repeated this achievement for four consecutive years.
