Blaauwklippen is one of the oldest working wine farms in South Africa and was even owned by Cecil John Rhodes, if only for a day.

All the buildings are original but beautifully restored, including the Carriage Museum, which houses a collection of antique carriages.

The Blaauwklippen Club

Wine clubs from all over South Africa are encouraged to participate in the annual blending competition, where blending guidelines as well as four annually chosen base wines are provided.
Clubs then create the blend of their choice.

The blends are judged by a panel of esteemed winemakers and connoisseurs and the winning recipe is then blended, bottled and labeled as the Blaauwklippen "Barouche Blend", honouring the winning club by mention on the back label.

Paulaner Brauhaus

Blaauwklippen have partnered with Paulaner Brauhaus and on a hot day a ice cold beer is most welcome!
