Ken Forrester

Situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa's most famous wine region Stellenbosch, our vineyards are commonly referred to as the Home of Chenin Blanc and other premium award-winning wines. Over the years we've created a special brand of hospitality reflected in the list of wines which have been poured at numerous grand events including the opening of the Scottish Parliament and the 85th birthday of our own icon, previous President Nelson Mandela. Our range of top quality wines has received massive national and international acclaim with literally hundreds of awards and accolades over the last 16 years and are broadly available in well-reputed restaurants and exported to 14 countries around the globe. So please do come visit and share our view on quality!

  • Ken Forrester Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2008
