Waterkloof Wines

Unlocking nature’s true potential with classically elegant wines

The estate stretches up to 300 metres above sea level with the Hottentots-Holland and Helderberg mountains as backdrop and descends to a mere four kilometres as the crow flies from the False Bay coast.

Waterkloof’s wines are shaped by an amphitheatre of select, high-altitude vineyards, famed as one of the finest cool climate vineyard sites in South Africa. Here diverse, fertile soils, fanned by the cooling breezes of the nearby ocean, ensure perfect conditions for slow ripening, allowing the grapes to develop their intense flavours, complexity and finesse.

Nestled within one of the world’s foremost biodiversity hotspots, the Cape Floral Kingdom, Waterkloof is committed passionately to conservation and adheres to strict biodiversity guidelines whilst implementing bio-dynamic farming practices.

Modern yet unadorned with spectacular vistas, Waterkloof’s signature restaurant is literally taking the quality and popularity of Winelands dining to new heights. Dining with Burgundian chef Grégory Czarnecki – fuelled with a decade’s wealth of experience from working in some of the finest Michelin star restaurants in France – calls for an unhurried indulgence of contemporary classics complemented by the estate’s European style wines.
