“All our wines are bottled on the Estate. We get one shot each year and we have complete control over the process. This means that only the very best quality wines are produced’, says Braam Gericke, Head Viticulturist.
Our celebrated and award-winning wines are incorporated into two main ranges; The Barrel Select Reserve Range, our signature, premium range, and The Estate Range – our classic range.
Wildekrans also produces 3 different olive oils and offers tastings and tours of both the wine and olive oil ranges and operations.
