De Trafford Winery is situated on the beautiful Mont Fleur farm set at the top of a dramatic valley above Stellenbosch, 380m up between the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains, at the end of one of the bumpiest roads in the region.
The history of wine growing on this mountain farm started with the purchase of the property in 1976 by the Trafford family as
inaccessible grazing land. Many of the high altitude slopes were deemed suitable for high quality red wine grape varieties. Unfortunately, due to the absurd quota restrictions, planting a commercial vineyard had to wait 18 years. In 1983 a small vineyard was established and there after a further 5 ha. Wine production started in 1992, growing from the initial 300 cases to the current 3500 cases.
