When making your way to Neethlingshof, you will have the pleasure of driving through an avenue of stone pines a kilometre long. Not only is this tunnel picturesque, but can be seen on the wine labels of bottles. The estate’s original name was De Wolvendans meaning ‘The Dance of Wolves” before Charles Maraise purchased it in 1788.

His young wife, Maria, initiated building the cellar and extending the vineyards to 80000 vines to begin making their own wine. She became one of the first female winemakers in the area. When their daughter married Johannes Henoch, he became a joint owner of the farm and the name was changed to Neetlingshof. Johannes was nicknamed “Lord Neetling” as he enjoyed the good life and always dressed superbly.

Maria decorated the gable of the Manor house where the Lord Neethling restaurant can now be found. Even once her children took over the running of the farm, she remained a part of the daily operation until she passed away at 68 years old. She still serves as a source of inspiration on the farm and a big part of the estate’s history.

Maria is now the name of the Weisser Riesling Noble Late Harvest. The Caracal is the estates flagship red blend, The Owl Post is a single vineyard Pinotage and highlights the use of owl posts for pest management.
