Overgaauw Wine Estate

Overgaauw, it also means a deep respect for heritage – a heritage of winemaking pioneers. The Van Veldens have been innovators from the very start, which gives us a few industry firsts to boast of: We were one of the first Cape farms to use small, new French oak barrels for the maturation of red wines.

Overgaauw is synonymous with innovation

    More than a century old, this historic fourth-generation-owned Stellenbosch wine estate is one of the ‘first families of Cape wine’, and boasts a laudable reputation as ‘leader of the pack’ (John Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2001). While Overgaauw is synonymous with innovation – most recently reflected in the release of top-quality new vintages across the Overgaauw wine range, all sporting brand new labels – the team is careful not to allow modernization to detract from their rich legacy.
