Over three hundred years ago, a few fortunate pioneers stumbled on a truly extraordinary area.
Three magnificent peaks framed a picture-perfect natural setting: a lush fertile valley fed by three streams carrying pure water from the snow-filled winter peaks.
It was the ideal location on which to create a home that was built to last.
But with this beauty came the inescapable force of Mother Nature which over the years unleashed two fires, an earthquake and a devastating storm – defining moments that the Drostdy Cellar and Home miraculously withstood.
It was this unrivalled setting; the majestic homestead and Sir Meiring and Lady M’s vision that gave rise to Drostdy-Hof’s range of wines.
