Ken Forrester Vineyards And Mountain Ken Forrester With Dogs Ken Forrester Logo
In Stellenbosch, South Africa, under the gaze of the Helderberg Mountain, former-restauranteur Ken Forrester grows some of the most spectacular Chenin Blanc in the world. "Mr Chenin", as Ken has become known, has a keen focus on cool climate varietals like Syrah, Grenache and of course Chenin Blanc, making some of South Africa’s most stunning and award-winning red and white wines - like the FMC and Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc which are served at top tables around the world.
Ken Forrester Vineyards

Situated in the heart of South Africa’s most famous wine region, Stellenbosch, Ken Forrester's Vineyards and winery are a temple to Chenin Blanc and other premium award-winning wines. Over the years, the range of top quality wines has received massive national and international acclaim with literally hundreds of awards and accolades. Ken Forrester’s philosophy has always been to create a range of handcrafted, individually made wines that suitably complement a wide variety of food styles and provide excellent value. The legendary Ken Forrester FMC - an iconic expression of Chenin Blanc, fermented in French oak - is one of the finest wines of its style, while the The Gypsy, Ken's Rhone ranger is a poised blend of Grenache and Syrah and an elegant homage to the regional French home of Shiraz (Syrah). The elegantly effervescent Sparklehorse is a classic sparkling Chenin Blanc made in the traditional method, and the best-selling Ken Forrester Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc was awarded the coveted 'Best In Show' award at the Decanter World Wine Awards.

Ken purchased the vineyard, here at the foot of the Helderberg, in 1993 as a family home, and since then has steadily upgraded and replanted to create not only a world-calss vineyard and winery but a super-comfortable wine lounge for tasting his delicious range while contemplating the mountains and getting to know the vineyard dogs: as great dog lovers, there are always about 6 pooches of varying breeds - rescue dogs, mostly - and some feisty Jack Russels too!

Ken Forrester Chenin Blanc Vine

It is Ken Forrester's vision to improve the lot of his employees by growing the business sustainably and providing maximum job opportunities in a market that is desperate for support. This focus on sustainability extends to the vineyards where grapes are farmed sustainably with no herbicides or pesticides. The verdant vineyards are tilled by hand - hugely labour intensive, but very satisfying - and pruning, thinning and harvesting are all carried out by hand. This additional employment it is hoped goes some way to improving the quality of life in their community, and, as Ken states, "if every community looked after their own, no-one would go wanting."

You can taste the care and attention that goes into every bottle of Ken Forrester wine - whether the elegant Chenin Blanc for which they have become world-reknowned, or one of their other delightfully powerful handcrafted varietal wines. The Ken Forrester Old Vines Reserve Chenin Blanc 2021 was awarded a Best in Show Award at the 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards, cementing Forrester’s reputation as the pioneering leader of Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc - the variety that is now widely regarded as South Africa’s white flagship. Being recognised as the world’s top Chenin Blanc at the Decanter awards – with a score of 97 – is an endorsement of Ken’s continued commitment to producing world class Chenin, specifically from old vineyards.
