Located on the South-facing slopes of the Paardeberg Mountain lies Vondeling Wines.

Owned by Julian Johnsen, Anthony Ward and Richard Gower, Vondeling is actively involved in preserving and protecting the natural heritage of the Paardeberg Mountain.

The estate is a proud member of the Paardeberg Sustainability Initiative as well as a Conservation Champion of the WWF.

Matthew Copeland is the Senior Winemaker at Vondeling and has been a part of the estate since 2007.  After high school Matthew worked in wine regions across the world, including Switzerland, France, California, Australia and New Zealand.  Only once he returned to SA did he study – most people do it the other way around.

He uses honest techniques and practices to express the origins of the fruit in the most authentic way.
