Delaire Graff Estate

Delaire Graff Estate

Located on the Helshoogte Pass in the Banghoek Valley, which was once a traditional trading route for the Huguenot settlers, Delaire Graff Estate is positioned below the Botmaskop Peak which formerly served as an essential lookout point in the Banghoek Valley for ships entering Table Bay Harbour. Delaire Graff Estate continues to be a source of superb contributions to the vivid heritage of the Stellenbosch region Steeped in history, Delaire Graff has built upon the legacy of the land with sun-drenched vineyards, an unparalleled lodge and spa, award-winning restaurants and flagship boutiques. Each facet of the Estate honours the heritage of the Banghoek and Stellenbosch region. From the Cape Dutch-styled lodges to the French Huguenot-influenced architecture and the isiXhosa-inspired light fittings, colours and design touches, the Estate celebrates the old and new in the most spectacular fashion. Since it opened in 2009, ‘The Jewel of the Cape Winelands’ has become a legend in its own right. This philosophy is carried through to the wine cellar where traditional winemaking methods and a delicate, handcrafted approach form the foundation upon which winemaker Morné Vrey creates the Delaire Graff portfolio of superlative wines. Grapes are picked by hand before being hand-sorted and basket-pressed for gentle extraction of the fruit. A 450-tonne gravity-fed cellar allows for delicate manipulation of the wine during its journey from grape to glass. It is here that legends are made.
