Entrance to De Grendel

De Grendel means "the latch" in Dutch – this farm was historically the gateway on the route to the inland settlements of Durbanville and Stellenbosch.


Perfectly situated on high, sea-facing slopes, it is the only vineyard in the country that is 350m above sea level and only 7 km from the sea.

The view from the tasting centre


The farm showcases Table Mountain, the city of Cape Town and the seaboard all in one landscape.

Originally used for the breeding of Arab horses, the Graaffs also breed award-winning cattle and sheep.
This established farm is now home to Holstein stud cattle, sheep, grain and vines.

Cellar

Using the principles of Feng Shui the cellar has been designed and decorated to blend the old with the new.

Windows act as spy holes into the manufacturing process and into the cellar itself where the barrels are stored.
