Who are we
Opstal Estate is situated at the foot of the Slanghoek mountains in the heart of the breathtakingly beautiful Slanghoek Valley on the Breedekloof Wine Route. The valley forms part of the Breede River Valley with Worcester as the closest, large town.
When we say family we mean it in every sense of the word. Our production manager, Gerhard Theron, is the second generation Theron to join Opstal. His father, Kobus, worked at Opstal for 31 years. We are also proud to have 3rd generation farm workers that have helped to make Opstal a success. Thirty families who permanently live and work at Opstal. We created the Sixpence range as a tribute to not only Sixpence, but all the legends that have worked on Opstal.
