The Wildekrans Wine Estate is one of the oldest farms in the Botrivier Valley which dates back to the early 1800’s and was originally used as an outspan post for the oxen and wagons of the 17th, 18th and 19th century travellers. The towns name, Botrivier, is derived from the meaning “butter river”, where the local Khoi San tribe used to sell butter to the early European pioneers.

As these early travellers descended the Houw Hoek Pass, they called the vast expanse of Overberg rolling hills in front of them,
“Canaan”, meaning “the promised land”.

Wildekrans today, at over 1 000 hectares in size, fills a prominent space in this wonderful, fertile landscape. The first fruit orchards and grape vineyards were planted over a hundred years ago and the wine cellar dates back to the 1920's and 1930's, with original signed M.Kannemeyer built-in concrete open kuipers and tanks.

The terroir is unique for the production of premium wines. Bokkeveld shale is the predominant soil type and the vineyards benefit from the cool summer Walker Bay sea breeze, allowing for optimum ripening and harvesting.
