More about Zorgvliet Wine Estate

Zorgvliet Wine Estate is situated at the 5-star Zorgvliet Vineyard Lodge & Spa in the Banghoek Valley near Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second oldest town. This premier winelands property is affiliated with Protea Hotels’ exclusive 5-star African Pride Hotels, Lodges and Country Houses brand and is fast-becoming the preferred vineyard destination for business and leisure guests.

Zorgvliet Wine Estate was acquired in 2002 by property developer and entrepreneur Mac van der Merwe, and forms part of the world-renowned hospitality, travel, tourism and lifestyle brand Zorgvliet Portfolio. Zorgvliet Portfolio also owns the 5-star Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club in Vereeniging; 5-star Ka’Ingo Private Reserve & Spa in the malaria-free Waterberg region of Limpopo; majority shares in the 4-star Protea Hotel King George on the Garden Route in George; the premier factional ownership bushveld property Dinkweng Game Farm in the UNESCO-declared Waterberg Biosphere in Limpopo; Sure Zorgvliet Travel Agency; and St Andrews Travel Agency in Bolton, England.

One of the main attractions at the estate is the Herenhuis 1692 Restaurant, which as the name implies, dates back to 1692. The tastefully refurbished 300 year-old Manor House is where General Beyers was born and centuries ago. Although it sometimes served a voting station for the people of the region, the Herenhuis (Manor House) catered primarily for people with a palate for fine food and weddings. For trendy Cape socialites, this was the “in” place to be. Another gourmet attraction is the Le Pommier Restaurant, named after the apple orchard that once grew where the restaurant now stands. It is believed that apple farming in that area was a real threat to wine farming that has made this part of the Cape world famous for its wines. Set in a more relaxed atmosphere, Le Pommier Restaurant is situated right next to the Zorgvliet Wine Shop where guests get to taste and experience the elegance of the various award-winning wines from the estate.

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of sweeping vineyards, majestic mountains and red wine-coloured sunsets this is an ideal location for you to relax in luxury and style. This is the ideal place for you to indulge in the luxury of Spa treatments, fine and country dining, picnics against a breathtaking backdrop of red-wine sunsets, mountain braais atop Simonsberg Mountain, wedding functions, corporate events, historical vineyard tours and intimate cellar wine tasting sessions with the winemaker. And, this is only the tip of the iceberg.
