Confidently New World, our single-minded focus is on producing premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines and Cabernet Sauvignon-based blends. Our property has a prime position in the Helderberg region within Stellenbosch, a district renowned for producing premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines. Our north and north-east facing vineyards are home to 9 types or clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, each of which exhibit slight differences in characteristics, such as berry size, cluster density, or ripening time. These variances affect our wines flavour, aroma, and structure, and help us produce wide-ranging styles of Cabernet suitable for every palate.
Savour modern farmhouse cuisine at its finest in a charming open-plan space that extends out onto a terrace with picturesque views of Stellenbosch and the Helderberg mountains. Farmstyle decor echoes the hearty cuisine made from fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. Seasonal Grillworks offer a unique dining experience.
