De Grendel Wine Estate
De Grendel is situated on the historic eponymous Cape farm dating back to 1720 and home to the Graaff family for five generations. A working farm, the tradition of cattle, sheep and horses, dates back more than a century. 3rd Baronet Sir David Graaff established the vineyards and modern wine cellar, a legacy now continued by his son, Sir De Villiers. Cellar master Charles Hopkins combines the most modern winemaking techniques with a nod to the farm’s heritage, eco-caring ethos and commitment to quality.
De Grendel, meaning latch or lock in Dutch, is one of Cape Town’s oldest farms, stretching out over almost 330 hectares on the fynbos-covered slopes of Tygerberg Hill.
The breathtaking view of Table Mountain from the farm, 350 meters above sea level, is arguably the best in the Cape winelands. On a clear day, you can see all the way from Table Bay to False Bay, and sometimes even on to Cape Point.
