The Goose Wine Estate is based in the unique Upper-Langkloof valley, nestled just behind the Outeniqua Mountains on the picturesque Garden Route of South Africa. The name on the Farm’s Title Deed is “Ganzekraal”, which means “Goose Closure” or “Goose Enclave”. The farm and the surrounding area were given the name over a century ago when Wild Geese from the area flew down during the day to rest in the cattle and sheep closures. They would forage on the seeds and pips in the feed, while the animals were out on pasture.
At the Black Oystercatcher Wines, we produce top quality wines of a world-class standard. Our grapes, grown in the cool tip of Africa winds in the Elim wine ward, are smaller than usual – with more intense flavours as a result.
Once the grapes are ripe, they are handpicked, and worked with in the softest possible way. At Black Oystercatcher Winery, we operate according to our wine-making philosophy: working the land with the least possible interference in the most natural way.
Stellar Winery is South Africa’s largest producer of fine, organic, fair trade wines. All our wines are organic, and vegan friendly. We also produce no-added-sulphur wines, and are the largest global producers in this niche category.
Some 302kms from Cape Town the R362 winds its way up the picturesque West Coast. Along this largely unspoiled coastline lies Doringbaai, home to a small but hardy fishing community and arguably the world's only vineyard this close to the Atlantic Ocean.The vines of Fryer's Cove dot the hillside 820 meters from where the cold ocean throws its breakers against a rocky shore.
The Tradouw Highlands, one of the newest and smallest wine wards in the Klein Karoo wine region, is the home of Star Hill Wines.
The Tradouw Highlands is an exceptional area located some 750m above sea level on a plateau extending from the Langeberg Mountains into the Little Karoo. Of our total land area of some 2,168ha of land, 1,000ha or 46% is set aside for conservation which extends from Mountain Fynbos, which borders on Marloth Nature Reserve, to Renosterbosveld bordering on Sanbona Game Reserve.
Joubert-Tradauw is a family-owned private cellar in the Tradouw Valley in the Klein Karoo/Little Karoo region on the famous R62 route. The farm is located just outside the picturesque village of Barrydale. Life around here is mainly about two things: fruit of the vine and the work of human hands. Step into the clean, crisp air and onto the rich, fertile soil of the Tradouw Valley.
On the sunlit north facing slope of Cradock Peak, the highest crest of the Outeniqua Mountain range running parallel to the Southern Cape coast and creating part of the scenic attraction of the Garden Route, is the flourishing Herold Wines vineyard. Bounded on three sides by nature reserve, it is a remote and idyllic setting, the vineyards embraced by lofty mountains covered with dramatic stands of fynbos.
