About Hudson's

Vredenheim Wine Estate, R310 Baden Powell Drive, Stellenbosch
Cape Winelands, 7600

Welcome to Hudson’s at Vredenheim Wine Estate. We offer a beautiful, tranquil setting with magnificent views and exquisite decor, excellent food prepared by our experienced and dedicated chefs and professional, attentive service from our in-house coordinator and team.

Hudson's Gardens

Our expansive gardens complete with a picturesque dam, glorious floral displays and stunning mountain views make the ideal location for wedding ceremonies, end-of-year functions, picnic lunches and other events, and offer abundant opportunities for photography.

Hudson's Hall Venue - 50 to 120 guests

Inside, we have a large function room which can be arranged to accommodate from 50 up to 120 guests. A unique fiber optic starlight cieling, beautiful mirrors and stunning chandeliers featuring 60 kilos of perfect Egyptian crystals create a magical atmosphere. This converted barn opens up on to a wonderful view of the gardens with the dam and majestic mountains in the distance. The function room is ideal for wedding receptions, birthday celebrations and corporate events. Smaller events of less than 50 guests can be accommodated in our restaurant or outdoor areas.

Our antique bar, adjacent to the function room, is hand-crafted from Burmese teak and served as the ticket counter at Cape Town railway station for 111 years. Fully stocked with wine, beer, soft drinks, spirits and liquers and staffed by our enthusiastic bar tenders, this attractive feature bar adds to any occasion.

Hudson's Loft venue - 100 to 300 guests

The exclusive loft venue is situated on the first floor at Hudson's. Ideally suited for between 100 and 300 guests, this beautiful venue offers double volume ceilings and unparalleled views across our immaculate garden to the Helderberg mountain range. Exquisitely furnished with our signature crystal chandeliers, the loft venue also boasts its own hand crafted natural wood bar, lounge areas and an outdoor deck to the front of the building. Lift access is available for disabled guests.


Hudson’s closes to the public at 4.30pm each day and thereafter the entire venue, including the bar, inside area and gardens, is exclusively for the use of you and your guests. Breakfast / early afternoon weddings are also available.

For the past two years, Hudson’s has won the gold ABIA (Africa Bridal Industry Academy) award for the best wine estate reception venue in the cape, and was also short-listed for the floral design and decorator awards.

We had the most amazingly magical wedding day at Hudson’s on 15th March 2018. The venue is just stunning.. Rhiannon and all the staff are perfect in helping make your day one to remember, right down to all the fine details. For us living in the UK planning our wedding in SA was made so easy and stress free. We can’t thank you all enough and will definitely be paying Hudson’s a visit when next in SA. Love Mr and Mrs Humphreys

We had our wedding at Hudson's Vredenheim Estate on the 25th of May 2018. There were no word for how beautiful everything was. Rhiannon, her mom and the rest of their Hudson's team made our dream wedding come true. Everything was done to the T as we wanted it. The evening was a huge success and on every photo our guest were either eating, laughing and dancing. Everyone raved about the beauty of the venue, the amazing party and the magnificent food! It was absolutely the best day of our lives and Hudson's definitely helped making it even more memorable. Thanks to everyone from Hudson's. The perfect venue for any special occasion!

Wedding May 2017
Venue Service

By Charn, on 23 May 2017Date of Wedding - 05 May 2017

I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars! We chose Hudson's as our wedding venue in May 2017, and JUST WOW! While we initially fell in love with the spectacular garden and breathtaking interiors, we never actually anticipated how incredibly well-run, organised and accommodating this venue would be. Everyone always says that something will go wrong on your wedding day - well, not on ours! Yes, it rained on the day - yet the Hudson's team acted SO quickly and set up the most STUNNING indoor ceremony area (without needing any instructions), that I can't imagine having it any other way! The food was just incredible, the venue managers indulged our most detailed requests, the decor was EVERYTHING we could've hoped for, the wedding was 100% stress-free, and every single detail was absolutely perfect. Thank you for wildly exceeding our most divine expectations - you guys are the true definition of the word "LEGENDS".

We got married here on 24 April 2016 and I could not have asked or the day to be more perfect.Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special, perfect and effortless. The ceremony and reception hall looked absolutely amazing and everything was more perfect than I could ever have imagined. The garden was the most beautiful back drop for our ceremony and photo's. The cheese platters served under the trees were refreshing and the reception food was fantastically delicious, all the guests complimented the excellent quality and service. The reception hall was breathtakingly beautiful with all the candles, lights and flowers. With your teams skills and expertise my wedding day was absolutely perfect!
