Landskroon Wines

Landskroon is situated along the southwestern slopes of Paarl Mountain, a mere 40 minutes from Cape Town and right in the heart of the Cape Winelands. The winemaking tradition at Landskroon dates back to the 17th century when the French Huguenot settlers came to the Cape. Among the newcomers was Jacques de Villiers, a wine maker from Niort in France. In 1874 his great-grandson, Paul, bought a portion of the original Landskroon farm that had been granted to a free burger by Governor Simon van der Stel in 1692. Today Landskroon comprises more than 300 hectares and is managed as a private, family operation and owned by the families of brothers Paul and Hugo de Villiers. Five members of the family are involved in the running of the farm on a full-time basis. The current wine maker, Paul de Villiers and Abraham van Heerden is the fifth generation to carry on this proud tradition at Landskroon. Products Our tasting venue creates a relaxed atmosphere for an acquaintance with our extensive range of award-winning wines and ports
