About the winery
A number of years ago before deciding to start Oldenburg, Adrian Vanderspuy commissioned various technical studies to ascertain the wine growing potential of the terroir found on the farm. The various studies examined the soils, the sunlight intensity, rainfall, temperatures, amongst other things, with significant detailed analysis put into each of these variables at about 50 different sites on the farm. The result pointed to something very exciting – without any doubt, the terroir at Oldenburg was quite unique, with great potential for producing the highest quality wines. The findings matched what he already intuitively knew; there was always something very special about this particular place. He recalls a childhood memory of eating a pear, grown where our Chenin Blanc is now located. This pear tasted like the best pear, ever – fresh, sweet, juicy, crisp - but soft fruit, just perfect! It may seem obvious that great wines come from impeccable fruit!
