Arabella Wines CC


At Arabella we have a very simple objective: we endeavor to make the best wine possible. Achieving this goal is our passion.
The name Arabella was chosen as a word play on the beautiful Arabian horses. Stephen DE Wet and son Jamie are both very keen endurance riders.
The first DE Wet, one Jacobus, arrived in South Africa in 1693.
One hundred and fifty years later the DE Wet family farming at Brandvlei. The younger son in the DE Wet household, one Daniel DE Wet, created some sort of chaos by running off with his older brother’s fiance, the petite Miss Jordaan.
To escape the somewhat understandable wrath of his older brother, Daniel DE Wet, and his new wife settled on a remote farm called Retreat on the outskirts of the Robertson District.
Here, he prospered greatly and bought a farm for each of his many sons. For the oldest, Jacobus Stephanus DE Wet, he bought a large farm on the Cogmanskloof River. Arabella forms part of this historic farm.
The winery has a capacity of 3,200,000 liters, of which 600,000 liters will be red wine maceration tanks. All tanks are cooled.
Arabella Estate is equipped with its own dedicated bottling and labelling plant.
Our main varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Pinotage, Viognier and Chardonnay.
