in the vineyard : Drostdy Wines was established in the Tulbagh Valley in 1964. The historic De Oude Drostdy, completed in 1804, overlooks the cellar. This classic building reflects the Drostdy Hof heritage and commitment to quality. Drostdy Wines launched the first Drostdy Hof wines, named after the courtyard in front of the cellar, in 1973. They soon earned a reputation as excellent, enjoyable wines at affordable prices.
