Mooiplaas Wine Estate


Wines that are distinctive and expressive of place and vintage.

Mooiplaas is a historic and traditional working wine estate, bought by Nicolaas Roos in 1963. He was joined by his two sons Tielman, viticulturist, (1980) and Louis, winemaker (1983). The history of the farm dates back to 1806, with the manor house on the estate – a national monument – an impressive example of Cape Dutch architecture. In 1995 Mooiplaas established a Private Nature Reserve, dedicating 70 hectares to the conservation of endangered Fynbos species.

Our Wine Makers... Louis Roos.

When it comes to winemaking, our cellar master, Louis Roos, is a true purist. He uses a range of classic and traditional winemaking processes to produce the Mooiplaas wines, such as wild yeast, natural fermentation, light filtration and maturation in small oak barrels.
