A large, family-owned Stellenbosch estate that is as well known in South Africa for its country house hotel spa & restaurant, summer picnics, events venue and beautiful grounds, as well as walking and mountain bike trails as it is for its varied range of wines! It is a large estate of close to 500 hectares, 100 of which are planted to vineyards, with myriad grape varieties planted according to the soils and specific site. Production is roughly half red, half white, with a little rosé.
The estate was founded in 1980 and the first bottlings were in 1983. In recent years there has been major investment in the vineyards, and in mechanisation, with harvest increasingly by machine, backed up by sorting tables in the winery. Farming is sustainable and the property is BWI and IPW accredited.
