Over three hundred years ago, a few fortunate pioneers stumbled on a truly extraordinary area.

Three magnificent peaks framed a picture-perfect natural setting: a lush fertile valley fed by three streams carrying pure water from the snow-filled winter peaks.

It was the ideal location on which to create a home that was built to last.

But with this beauty came the inescapable force of Mother Nature which over the years unleashed two fires, an earthquake and a devastating storm – defining moments that the Drostdy Cellar and Home miraculously withstood.

It was this unrivalled setting; the majestic homestead and Sir Meiring and Lady M’s vision that gave rise to Drostdy-Hof’s range of wines.

Details A light, dry white wine, made from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes, this is an easy drinking, low alcohol option for the health conscious and those watching their kilojoule intake. It is 25% lower in alcohol than most other white table wines.

This soft and refreshing wine reflects the fruity aromas and flavours typical of Chenin Blanc and ends in a crisp, clean finish.

It is best enjoyed while still young and fresh.
