About our

Wine Estate

About 15 kilometers from Stellenbosch, on the slow, meandering road that leads to Somerset West, lies a piece of land that is as peaceful and as tranquil as it is in unison with its surrounds. It nestles, in cozy comfort, against the lower slopes of the magnificent Helderberg, it embraces breathtaking views that stretch across the width of False Bay to the furthest-flung beacon that is Table Mountain.

Yonder Hill was bought by Frikkie Naudé two decades ago. Since then, the estate has evolved and grown to be part of the body of the Naudé family. To us it is a truly special place and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Ankole Stud

Situated on Yonder Hill wine farm is Benella — the first Ankole Stud in the Western Cape. Its story is close to our heart, that’s why the name derives from the names of Daniel’s two children, Benjamin and Ella Naudé.

Find out more about Daniel’s journey in establishing Benella Ankole and bask in the majesty of these most beautiful African longhorns.
