The owner of Vriesenhof, Jan "Boland" Coetzee, is ranked among the much-loved icons of the South African wine industry. A former Springbok rugby player, he studied viticulture in 1963 at the University of Stellenbosch. In 1980, he bought Vriesenhof and produced his first wine a year later. During 1987, close friends bought a neighbouring farm and eventually, the two were joined to form the estate now known as Vriesenhof Vineyards. Jan passed the winemaking reins over successor, Nicky Claasens in 2010.
