Along a winding road through canopies of trees in the Knorhoek Valley lies Quoin Rock, a historic Stellenbosch wine estate. Under the custodianship of the Gaiduk family, fate, passion, energy and vision have transformed the old Stellenbosch vineyards and wine estate. Quoin Rock Wine Estate is the inspiring home of captivating experiences, from wine-tasting to picnics, weddings, culinary adventures and tranquil mountain escapes.

With each of his passions, Vitaly immerses himself into the subject by educating himself about the topic to the point of becoming an expert. At the Quoin Rock winery, we address our projects with the same approach. For example, investing in proper soil analysis in order to prepare it perfectly before planting and knowing exactly which types of grapes to plant in our Stellenbosch vineyards  to ensure the best possible yield.

Our custodian’s passions for the arts (including the art of winemaking) extends to our wine philosophy: that craftsmanship within the vineyard and the winemaker’s innovation in the cellar leads to wines that embody the uniqueness of our terroir.   
Our wines offer a myriad of well-balanced, complex flavours that generate even more harmonies over time.

Stellenbosch vineyards are more suited to red varieties – Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Elim vineyards are suited to grape varieties that have higher cold requirements, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Let us offer you a “taste of the terroir ” with our range of Quoin Rock and Namysto wines.
