The idea of Guardian Peak was conceived in 1998 when Jean Engelbrecht combined his knowledge of the international wine markets with the experience he gained at his family wine estate Rust en Vrede. Guardian Peak was named after the highest peak in the Stellenbosch mountain range, which overlooks the vineyards of Stellenbosch.
The Guardian Peak brand is designed to compliment those who enjoy a healthy, active, outdoor lifestyle, and the wines are crafted to be accessible and enjoyed anywhere at any time. Lifestyle is always a priority in the Cape Winelands and the Guardian Peak range is flexible and dynamic to enhance any lifestyle activity imaginable.
Guardian Peak is proud to be in the ranks of the new generation of South African wineries taking our products into the global market with confidence and ambition.
“A lifestyle without wine is incomplete. Our Live with Wine philosophy is built on our firm belief that wine and food should be inseparable in our daily diet – it being not as much a matter of appreciating wine with food, but rather the enjoyment of wine and food. I trust that our wines and our food will fulfill the latter.” – Jean Engelbrecht (Proprietor)
