Nestled in a valley on the free-draining, north-eastern slopes of the Bottelary Hills in Stellenbosch,  Hartenberg enjoys a Mediterranean climate of warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters. 

Hartenberg's vineyards face north, west, and east, with varietals planted to take advantage of either morning or afternoon sun. There is a difference in altitude of some 250 metres between the northern and southern vineyards.

Hartenberg is one of only twenty five wine estates to be awarded South African First Growth status.  This essentially means that Hartenberg scored 95 or more for best practise in both the vineyards and in the cellar. Hartenberg Family Vineyards is also proudly a founder signatory to SA’s Biodiversity In Wine initiative.
