De Grendel Wines, Cape Town

Spotlight On De Grendel Wine Estate – Not To Be Missed When You’re In Cape Town

As one of Cape Town’s oldest Wine Farms, De Grendel has a rich history and a beautiful story. Starting off as a horse farm and eventually delving into winemaking, the farm has been through many changes but its character has stayed the same. First established in 1720, the farm was bought by Sir David de Villiers Graaff in 1890. The prominent South African businessman and politician intended to use the land as a breeding and resting ground for his prized purebred Arab horses bought from Argentina.
