ABOUT SCHENKFONTEIN: The farm Schenkfontein originated on 9 December 1992 when a certain portion of the old Winkelshoek family farm, referred to as Winkelshoek Portion C, was separately sold off to Hennie Hanekom, who was to set out on a venture of his own. The intention for this piece of land was to act as a small holding and not to grow any vines or the making of wines. Several months after the split it was decided to name the farm Schenkfontein.

The farm consists of about 153 hectares of which only 23 consists of vineyards. The rest consist of shallow clay soil and mountain area. Soil types on the farm range from sand/clay to stone and clay soils. Dams in the ravines in the mountains store water during the winter months, and it is this water which nourishes and replenishes the vineyards during the summer months. It is here, in these idyllic wine-producing conditions that winemaker, Hendrik Hanekom, produced the first certified wines under the Schenkfontein label in 2014. He is a passionate winemaker with his own beliefs and his wines can be described as “easy drinking”. He still follows some of Oupa Hennie’s well- guarded recipes.
