  • Clos Malverne
  • Mulderbosch
  • Peter Falke Winery
  • Bellevue Estate

Stellenbosch

Clos Malverne - The Devon Valley microclimate is key to the quality of grapes grown on Clos Malverne. Although the valley is shallow it acts as a natural receptacle for the morning summer mists that linger around Stellenbosch. The valley is cooler than surrounding areas, significantly lengthening the ripening season, resulting in very ripe grapes. The vineyards are mostly planted on the gently sloping terrain of the valley. 

Peter Falke - The exclusive winery of Peter Falke is nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, South Africa. Groenvlei Farm is home to rambling magenta bougainvillea, delicate scented roses and wild lavender growing alongside carefully cultivated vineyards.

Dating back to the 18th century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The stately old homestead is partnered by a "boutique" winery, contemporary wine tasting room and luxurious outdoor lounge which have established Peter Falke Wines as the most elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands.

The Falke family has been doing business in South Africa since 1969. Peter Falke was born in Germany. His dream to own a farm came true when he acquired Groenvlei in 1995.

Bellevue Wine Estate - Bellevue Wine Estate in the prestigious Stellenbosch wine growing region in South Africa, cultivates approximately 152ha of vineyards on a variety of sites. This enables the winemaker to select the very best pockets from which to make the exquisite wines that Bellevue Wine Estate is renowned for. Recently a state of the art tasting room and restaurant has been furnished inside one of the historical wings of the cellar. Child friendly and with modern finishes and comfort, this proves a destination not to be missed!

Mulderbosh - Since its founding in 1989, Mulderbosch Vineyards has widely been accepted as one of South Africa’s foremost wine producers. In 2011 Mulderbosch was bought by California-based investment company Terroir Capital with well known wine investor Charles Banks at the helm, who had long desired to invest in the Cape Winelands.
