Nooitgedacht Estate is a 270-hectare estate situated 5km from the Northern fringes of the historic Boland town of Stellenbosch.
Set under 230 year old oaks and sweeping Cape Dutch gables, this 17th Century farm is rich in history and tradition and surrounded by some of the most famous wine estates in the South African wine industry. With names the likes of Van der Stel, Cloete, Greef, Baker and Rhodes having all walked through the H-shaped Manor house front door, it is not hard to see why Nooitgedacht has left its mark on the Winelands landscape and is one of the most esteemed addresses in the Cape.
The Manor House was built in 1774 and together with Groot Constantia can be seen as one of the most authentic examples of traditional Cape Dutch architecture in the province.
Today, the estate is under the careful custodianship of the Wirth family and has been since Mr. Fritz Otto Wirth purchased it in 1923. The family still employs the hands-on approach that made it the successful brand it is today, with all members playing their part in the running of the estate, from the weddings, events and wine through to the day-to-day management.
The Estate currently produces a limited number of premium Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot wines and projects in progress include expanding into sustainable organic farming and the development of The Nooitgedacht Village, a 25ha mixed-use village set to the north of the Estate.
Construction has already commenced with Phase 1 of The Village Walk.
