Welcome to Van Wykshof Wines “ A proud family dedicated to honour their Coat of Arms through hard-work, self-believe, family values and community upliftment in the beautiful Garden Route through nature’s fruit from the vine”.
The Van Wyk family is the first family in the 200-year history of George to establish their own branded label, truly an accomplishment testament through realising their dreams of establishing their own branded bottle of wine from the fruit of the earth. Rodney and Pamela van Wyk through their love of agriculture have built a strong-believe in their family of overcoming all obstacles that is faced in a challenging industry not synonymous with the Garden Route.
