Set in the heart of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in South Africa’s Western Cape Province, Springfield Estate is a vibrant, family-run wine farm. It is owned by the Bruwer family, fourth-generation wine farmers and ninth-generation descendants of the Bruères, French Huguenots who came to South Africa from the Loire in 1688 with bundles of vines under their arms.
The farm itself is picturesque. A tree-lined dirt road meanders up to the cellar complex which is flanked by a dam, complete with a small sailing boat and magnificent views of the mountain range of McGregor and the Langeberg mountains behind Robertson. A large number of Springbok, descendants of a herd brought down from Namibia 50 years ago, thrive on the estate, habitually escaping into the vineyards to sample the fresh berries.
The real magic of Springfield lies in the bottles of hand-crafted wine it produces, true gems of tradition, which offer both quality and individuality in keeping with the estate’s motto: from the grape to the bottle with care and passion.
