A bit of background
De Grendel is synonymous with quality. 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.
It was Sir David’s insight that injected new life into the established farm and within just a few years, De Grendel’s varietals were firmly established as key players in the South African wine industry with a number of accolades to their name.
The cellar experience
Using the principles of Feng Shui our cellar has been magnificently designed and decorated to blend the old with the new. Dramatic windows act as spy holes into the manufacturing process and into the vast cellar itself where the barrels are stored. The cellar combines the heritage of the Graaff family history at De Grendel, with a new era in winemaking and wine tasting.
The cellar’s open plan tasting room spills onto the veranda where you can experience our wines against the picture-perfect backdrop of Table Mountain, guided by the expertise of our in-house tasting presenters, 7 days a week.
