Peter Falke Wine Estate
As always on our trip to South Africa we try to search out new wines to add to our range.
We have been recommended to visit Peter Falke Winery is nestled against the Helderberg mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands.
The Falke family have been doing business in South Africa since 1969 and purchased the Groenvlie Farm in 1995. Since taking over the estate they have transformed the area and the gabled Cape Dutch tasting room is very beautiful no surprise as Peter’s wife Daniele is a renown French interior designor.
Today we met Alexa the marketing manager who told us about the history of the winery, terroir and wines made here. We were very impressed with not only the wines but the whole area is beautiful and we enjoyed a relaxed lunch on the lawns in front of the Farm House surrounded by vines.
We really enjoyed the wines here, the Estate’s ethos for winemaking and care of their staff fit well with carte-du-vin’s, so yes we will add Peter Falke Wines to ones we stock in the UK.
