In the Heart of Maria at Neethlingshof
Once upon a time, there was an amazing woman called Maria, who married a winemaker in Stellenbosch by the name of Charles Marais, they decided to start their matrimony as wine farmers and started production on a wine farm called Wolvendans (Dance of Wolves).
When her husband died, she was left with the wine-estate and an unfinished Manor House. She took over the farm, completed the house with a feminine touch and expanded the property before to her son in law (Johannes Neethling) took over and the name changed to Neehlingshof. This wine farm is now known as Neethlingshof and located just off the R310 on your way to Stellenbosch . When driving into the estate, you wander back in time and can almost hear the horse drawn carriages that brought honored guests to the Manor House up a tree lined lane over a more than one kilometer long. The former Manor House is now transformed into a beautiful restaurant and the tasting room is attached to the wine cellar.
