In the early 1700's, Theunis Bevernagie settled in a fertile valley guarded by the towering Witzenberg and Winterhoek mountains, and fed by the klein berg river. His name was to be enshrined in local wine lore for in 1927 theuniskraal was bought by the Jordaan family, specifically for winemaking. In 1948, Andries Jordaan launched the estate's first riesling ? and a south african icon was born. Just two years later theuniskraal riesling took gold at the commonwealth wine show against international competition. Andries' sons, Kobus and Rennie continued the tradition of fine riesling, extending plantings with other classic varieties, both white and red. Today their sons Andries and Wagner carry on the family's hands-on quality approach to winemaking. Vineyards (viticulturists: Wagner and andries jordaan) theuniskraal comprises 350 ha with 130 ha under vine, mostly Cape riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The soils are predominantly gravel and sandy loam. Clay and sandy loam soils are found along the river. The Muscat Ottonel and muscat de frontignan grapes were grown in trellised and irrigated vineyards, planted in 1992 and 1989 respectively.
