When Stoffel Stoumann accompanied his father into the district when he was yet a little boy, he surely did not imagine what would be accomplished near the little town of Vredendal on the West Coast of South Africa by himself, his wife Gesie and their two sons, Napoleon and Gielie.
Harvests, consisting of Colombar, Chenin blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet, Shiraz, etc., were delivered in its entirety to Spruitdrift and Vredendal Wine Cellars, until the Stoumanns established the smallest registered red wine cellar in the Olifants River region. They started marketing their first 2 800 bottles of Cabernet in September of 1998. It was decided later, as duties concerning the winery became extensive, that Napoleon would be responsible for wine making, while Gielie would manage the properties. During 2000 a bigger cellar was built closer to the R363 on which the farm borders, with extensions being made as is required from time to time.
Stoumanns wines are produced in the smallest estate wine cellar in the Olifants River region. It is situated near the town of Vredendal on the West Coast of South Africa. Several vintages of white and red wines are produced. Exclusivity is a given.
