Arabella Wines

Arabella is a venture established on land which has been in the De Wet family since the 1860's. As the vineyards had been established many years previously, it was assured that top quality wines would be produced at Arabella. A new cellar, bottling hall and tasting room was built at the beginning of 2006 and the first vintage from the cellar was produced in 2007. Arabella got off to an auspicious start when the Arabella Shiraz 2007 won a double gold at the Michelangelo International Wine Challenge.

The name Arabella was chosen as a word play on the beautiful Arabian horses which grace its verdant pastures. Stephen de Wet and son Jamie are both very keen endurance riders. Jamie received his national colours in 2004.

Stephen heads up the viticulture, stud and winemaking departments. Jamie heads up logistic, bottling, labelling, distribution, administration, sales, marketing, advertising and the brand.

It is the family's desire to establish the Arabella brand by giving our customers the very best quality at the very best price possible. But just good quality is not enough - we want our customers to have a special experience when drinking Arabella wines.

Arabella’s philosophy is that great wine is made in the vineyards. To this end we do everything possible to ensure that the grapes which we receive into our cellar are of the very best quality.

Val de Vie

The idea behind “Val de Vie” was sparked 30 years ago when Martin Venter  dreamed of a place in the winelands his family could call home. For many years he searched for the ideal location and then in 2001 he found it while flying over the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley. Alongside the Berg River lay a wine farm dating back to 1783: this would be the “Valley of Life” that he had been dreaming of. Martin then took on the challenge of transforming the sand mine that was then in operation into a lush paradise. Today the land has been turned into a flourishing estate and Martin’s dream has been realised. In 2017 the Absa Cape Epic will finish at Val de Vie for the first time.
