Cellar & Vineyards

THE WINE CELLAR

The wines of Zevenwacht Estate are distinguished by their finely crafted elegance and classic style. Our winemaker, Jacques Viljoen, honors the centuries-old wine-making traditions, yet is boldly innovative, welcoming the contribution that modern technology makes to the vinification of premier wines.

THE VINEYARDS

Covering 100 hectares of the 500 hectare property, the vineyards of Zevenwacht are ideally situated for the growing of quality grapes. Extending up the slopes of the Ribbokrant, the south and south-west facing vineyards are protected from the intense heat of summer afternoons by the Bottelary Hills and cooled by the sea breezes “blowing off” nearby Table Bay and False Bay. Characterized by good quality, varied soils, the vineyards have been selectively planted with red and white noble varietals.

CELLAR TOURS

Experience at first hand the artistry and technical skill that transform grapes into fine wine. Visitors are welcome to tour the cellar by appointment.

WINE TASTING

Savour the pleasure of sampling wines on their home ground, within sight of the vines on which they grew and of the cellar in which they were produced and matured. Open seven days a week.

Over and above a standard wine tasting, visitors can tantalise their taste buds further by enjoying delicious chocolate and wine pairings or cheese and wine tastings paired with the traditional Puglia cheese, available at the delicatessen.

The shoppe provides visitors with an opportunity to purchase beautiful hand-crafted jewellery, beadwork and ceramics, superior quality South African-made clothing and a range of premium wine apparel to make up a perfect gift.

We also offer the convenience of having your wine selections delivered to your door when you return from your travels.  This service (currently available for Europe and the United Kingdom) is managed by our partner Red-Simon, specialists in cellar-to-door wine services and our Online Store partner.  To find out more click on the Wine Online Shop menu option.
