The 5 best vineyards in South Africa 2018
- La Motte, Franschoek
- Anthonij Rupert, Franschoek
- Fairview, Paarl
- Newton Johnson, Hermanus
- Rust en Vrede, Stellenbosch
Rust en Vrede
First to specialize in the exclusive production of red wine only, Rust en Vrede is now South Africa’s Premium red wine Estate. Our full-bodied, new-oak matured wines are a manifestation of the supremacy of the Stellenbosch region when it comes to the making of truly great red wines.
La Motte’s completely redesigned and refurbished tasting facility, featuring a large fireplace for cosy winter tastings, has been highly commended for the inviting and friendly ambiance.
Wine farms Newton Johnson
The Newton Johnson Family Vineyards Pinot Noir was selected as one of the top 3 Pinots in the world outside Burgundy. This is a wine that has received 5 stars in Platter’s for every single vintage submitted since 2009 – an extraordinary track record that is unmatched by any other producer.
Anthonij Rupert Wine Farm
Anthonij Rupert Wyne was founded on the farm, L’Ormarins in Franschhoek. Originally owned by the late Anthonij Rupert, who passed away in 2001, the farm was eventually taken over by his brother Johann Rupert in 2003 and the brand named after him. It was Johann Rupert who constructed a state-of-the-art winemaking facility, catapulting the farm into a prestigious wine estate and the beginnings of what is now a sprawling enterprise.
Fairview Wine and Cheese Farm
Fairview is a working farm housing a collection of micro-businesses all sharing in a common goal – to create artisanal and sustainable produce, with a focus on fine wine and cheese. They have been caring custodians of the land since 1693, and invite you to come and visit and see for yourself how the farm operates, supports the environment and contributes to a more holistic lifestyle. Everything we do is driven by our philosophy of being honest, honouring our heritage and ensuring that ingenuity perpetually flows from our soils and cellars and straight into the heart of your relationship with us.
One of the best ways to completely immerse yourself in the Cape Winelands in South Africa is by staying on a beautiful wine farm. Waking
Beau Constantia is a boutique wine farm situated very high up on the Constantia Mountains where meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard leads to distinctive handcrafted wines.
Green Vine Eatery
Originally called “The Treehouse Eatery” and located further up on the Estate, The Green Vine was re-branded three years ago when they moved to their current building on the property.
