Wine Estate...

Take the opportunity to taste our award-winning Syrah wines. The 2012 and 2013 Aan’t Vette Louis Meurant Syrah won Silver, and the Divine Blush Blanc de Noir won Bronze at the traditional (since 1833) South Afican Young Wine Show. Moreover, the 2012 and 2013 Blanc de Noir vintages were crowned with the prestigious  Veritas medal (bronze).  Our very first red wine, the Aan’t Vette Louis Meurant Syrah 2012 vintage, was crowned with a Veritas bronze in 2014. This high quality red vintage was matured in small French oak barrels. The Aan't Vette Wine Estate strictly follows a strategy utilising only environmentally friendly farming practices. No pesticidies or herbicides are allowed in its proximity. Only organic substances are used. These fine wines are born on the banks of the Vette River in the single-block Syrah vineyard of the Aan't Vette Wine Estate on land originally proclaimed for divine worship in 1838.
