Welcome to Stellar Organic Winery

Stellar Winery is one of South Africa’s top producers and exporters of organic, fair trade wines. Situated just outside of the Namaqualand town of Vredendal, the cellar processes grapes from farms stretching from Bulshoek Dam in the south to the cool climate vineyards of Koekenaap, close to the mouth of the Olifants River on South Africa’s west coast.

The uniqueness of Namaqualand infuses our business and our product. Glorious carpets of spring flowers, hot sunny summer days, cold nights with an awe-inspiring canopy of stars overhead and quirky, straight-talking people are what this region of South Africa’s Western Cape Province is all about. Learn to love our wine and the chances are that you’ll end up loving us too.

Meanwhile, we’d like to invite you to take a quick tour of our small universe. Welcome!
