Delaire Graff Estate is situated on the Helshoogte pass, on the slopes of a crucial peak named Botmaskop. The name refers to the historic use of the peak as a lookout point for ships entering Table Bay harbour. * The cellar has been accredited with major accolades. * The superlative restaurant and deluxe wine tasting lounge have set new standards for on-estate tasting and dining. * The impressive art collection continues to attract local and global attention. * And the exclusive, 10suite hotel and spa is amongst the best in the world.

Delheim, situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, is owned by the renowned â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spatzâ&#x20AC;? Sperling and his family, who have been making a wide range of internationally acclaimed wines on this spectacular property for sixty years.

Cousins Jeff and Simon Grier started the family-owned Villiera Wines outside Stellenbosch in 1983 and embarked on an extensive replanting of classic and local varietals. Cathy Brewer (nĂŠe Grier) later joined the family team to head up the sales, marketing and export divisions. The introduction of hi-tech cellar facilities for the production of still wines as well as MĂŠthode Cap Classique combined with a unique wine business philosophy has seen Villiera developing into one of the largest private wineries in the country.

Warwick Estate

Waterford Wine Estate

Shuttle ; Wine Tasting ;

The Warwick vineyards stretch up the mountain slopes in the Capes premier red wine valley, Muldersvlei. The restored wine cellar is testimony to a long history: wine has been made in South Africa for over three centuries and the estate was originally part of land granted in 1791 by the Dutch East India Company.

The Waterford Way: Just as in winemaking, it is not about a single season, harvest or vintage - itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about continuity, longevity and perpetuation; building for the future and the generations to come. The Waterford Way is a philosophy that celebrates prosperity, life, food, wine, family and friends, and guides all that we do here at Waterford. Every guest to the farm is made to feel a part of the Waterford Way, and those who have visited are drawn back often not only to the sumptuous wines, but to the heart and soul of Waterford.

Waterkloof Wines

Shuttle ; Wine Tasting ; Food ; Live Sport ;

Our winemaking philosophy is to apply non-interventionist winemaking principles whenever possible. Top quality grapes are sourced from low yielding vineyards, traditional wine making methods are followed, creating brands which will consistently deliver â&#x20AC;&#x153;real wineâ&#x20AC;? in a branded format. Reds enjoy a period of maceration on the skins to extract rich colour and tannins, whilst whites are left on the lees prior to bottling to develop extra complexity. The result: wines with elegance and length, archetypal examples of the grape and terroir.

Webersburg is a boutique winery that follows the classic French tradition of low production per hectare, controlled fermentation and a high percentage of new barrels used with every vintage, giving the wines great structure and complexity. In summer, savour our delicious wines whilst relaxing on the luscious green lawns under oak trees, and enjoy breathtaking views of the vineyards and mountains. Spoil yourself in winter by sipping our luxurious red wines in front of glowing Ă&#x20AC;UHSODFHV
