Harrison Hope Wine Estate is the Eastern Cape's first wine estate. Ronnie & Janet Vehorn established the estate in 2006 in the hills of the Eastern Cape, outside Queenstown. After 350 years of wine making in South Africa, Harrison Hope pioneered wine making in the Eastern Cape Province. The first estate wines were pressed in 2009.
