from the Kalahari to winemaker

Zoetendal Wine Farm is located near the picturesque mission village of Elim and 30 kilometres from Agulhas; the southernmost tip of Africa, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. The farm is situated on the banks of the Nuwejaars River, providing it with one of the most exceptional views and peaceful atmospheres.

In 2015 the Becker family made Zoetendal Farm their new home. The family moved from Upington to Zoetendal Farm. Jan, the father of the family, grew up in the Kalahari and after 50 years, searched for greener grazing grounds. Christine, the mother, was a teacher at Oranje-Noord Primary School for 13 years. She now runs the Farm Stall and Coffee Shop. Salmon, the eldest son, manages the nearby wine farm restaurant, Black Oystercatcher. Michael, a winemaker in the making, is studying at the University of Stellenbosh. The twins, Jana and Christine, are busy completing their final exams at Bredasdorp High School, after which both will pursue studies at the University of Stellenbosh.

Zoetendal Wines

Zoetendal Wines

Zoetendal Wines was first established in 2004 by Johan de Kock, the previous owner of Zoetendal Farm. The wines produced from the grapes surrounding Elim, are exceptional. The Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz, the most beautiful wines of this area, are truly extraordinary. Zoetendal Wines, produced by DuToitskloof Wines at Rawsonville, offers a fresh, crisp Sauvignon Blanc and ruby red Shiraz.

Zoetendal Trading Post is our very own little pit stop for visitors to the Strandveld. Here visitors can refill on homemade products such as jam, preserves, and handwork. The Coffee Shop produces lovely, light meals, such as the famous homemade quiche and delicate Sweet Platter.
Becker's Craft Beer

Becker's Craft Beer

Becker’s Craft Beer is named after each one of the four children. Solly Stout is an Oatmeal Stout and the dark colour is provided by the Brown Malt, Roasted Barley Malt and Chocolate Malt with a hint of chocolate. Mike Weiss is a fruity beer with hints of citrus, such as orange and lemon and a firm favourite among the ladies. Named after the twins, Jana and Christine, the brewery produces two types of Pale Ale, the American Pale Ale is a refreshing amber coloured ale with a citrus-laden hop aroma, and the Twin Pale Ale is an all-round crowd pleaser!
