Background

History

Rustenberg wine growing history dates back to 1682. In the early 1800’s the estate was split into Rustenberg and Schoongezicht, the latter being rescued in 1892 by John X Merriman. In 1941 Peter and Pamela Barlow bought Rustenberg, later acquiring Schoongezicht and reuniting the properties. Their son Simon took over the running of the farm in 1987. The Barlows have been at Rustenberg for over 60 years: the longest period any one family has owned the farm.

A range of slopes and aspects allows site-specific plantings that enhance varietal characteristics.
