Willie and Emma Dreyer are the proud owners of Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards. Their story set off when they met at the age of 16 and together they have built Leeuwenkuil into a Swartland institution. The estate on which it is situated was one of the earliest wine farms in the region. It has been around since 1693, when it was known as Schinderkuijl, and was noted as having 8000 vines. The Dreyer family took ownership of the farm in 1851 after a few subdivisions, and has since developed it into the estate with the largest acreage of grapevines in South Africa.
Leeuwenkuil is the southernmost farm in the Swartland, serving as the gateway to this fascinating wine region. They grow vineyards of distinction within sight of the majestic Table Mountain and use innovative winemaking styles to keep things both traditional and fresh.
