Overview Rates Reviews Enquire

Bezalel Wine & Brandy Estate is an undiscovered gem in the Lower Orange River Valley of the Northern Cape. Our small, if lofty, daily mission is to make South Africans proud of their great culture, specifically its wines and brandies, and secondly, to make those who don’t live here feel welcome… and a tad envious of the great things we have! We do this by always focusing on quality, authenticity of origin, hospitality and family. When we nourish our culture we also act sustainably by invigorating local agriculture. This has the unspoken consequence of preserving our green and historical spaces, all the while adding richness to our Northern Cape story – and our dinner table.

Wine Cellar

Bezalel Wine and Brandy Estate’s Dyasonsklip Cellar produces quality boutique wines through dedication and true enthusiasm for our products.

Wine production on Dyasonsklip started as a personal hobby of Inus Bezuidenhout, which grew alongside his own passion, until finally becoming a full blown production wing in 1997.

Dyasonsklip Cellar now produces a varying selection of fine boutique wines from a range of 17 unique grape cultivars grown on the Estate.

Handmade, low-tannin, red wines fermented from grapes grown exclusively on Bezalel Dyasonsklip and matured in imported French Oak is now available from the Estate.


Bezalel Wine and Brandy Estate’s Distillery is proud to partake in a process which has been part of the South African society and culture since the arrival of the early European settlers at the Cape in 1652.

Distillation is a remarkable, rewarding journey that begins with a simple, beautiful fruit and ends with a drink of distinctive character and exceptional quality.

Laurens Kitchen

We value a world where the personal touch still exists and where indulgent products are hand crafted with care and perfection. After all, we love spoiling ourselves and those we love every day with something special and out of the ordinary.

We are committed to ensuring that our products meet and exceed your expectations, as we are passionate about and dedicated to the art of premium hand-crafted confectionery making.
