Certification for fair trade and responsible supply chains
Impact, special achievements & commitmentsFounded in 1693, Leeuwenkuil Farms has been home to seven generations of the Dreyer family. Their love of the land and respect for nature serve as the foundation for the over 1300 hectares of vineyard the family are custodians to.
Leeuwenkuil, or “Lion’s Lair”, was given its alluring name as a tribute to the ferocious Cape Lion that roamed the farmlands hunting unsuspecting cattle.
Situated at the gate of the Swartland, Leeuwenkuil crafts an array of wines well-suited to the climate and soil of this region. They work with both old and new world winemaking styles to keep things both traditional and fresh.
Leeuwenkuil is a family business with a strong focus on family values. This means that they consider everyone they work with a part of the Leeuwenkuil family – be they owners, managers or employees.
Owner Willie Dreyer beliefs - we do not inherit the land from our fathers, but borrow it from our children. That is why we have a responsibility towards the education of our children and the development of our people.
