Van Zylshof WinesVAN ZYLSHOF ESTATE
This Bonnievale estate (close to Robertson), is the epitome of what Frogitt & Vonkel stands for… low production wines, from small farms where quality and character prevail over quantity and economics.

170km from Cape Town and 70km from the South Atlantic ocean the farm is ideally situated for the production of typically French Nobel cultivars.

“Van Zylshof” has been in the Van Zyl family for three generations and is run along the lines of small family estates in France, where different generations of the same family manage all aspects of operation – from day-to-day tending of the vines to marketing.The cellar, which was built by Oupa Andries van Zyl in 1940, has been modernised over the years, but the family ethos has remained.
