In the midst of tough times, there has been much to celebrate at De Grendel, and all credit goes to the team who have worked together and found new ways to deliver the De Grendel experience to our loyal patrons, hopefully providing some light through the simple pleasures of good wine and food and the natural beauty of our farm.
Please note that our tasting room is closed until further notice in accordance with level 3 regulations in South Africa. Our Restaurant remains open with special trading hours.
A love story, a family legacy, a noble title, a small hill on a historic farm looking across the ocean – all these are entwined in the story of the new De Grendel Proposal Hill Brut Rosé, an elegant vintage Pinot Noir Cap Classique released to mark the 300th anniversary of the landmark Cape farm.
De Grendel received one of only 115 gold medals along with one of only 13 green medals for its Bordeaux-style Red Blend Rubaiyat at the 12th Cathay Pacific Hong Kong IWSC.
De Grendel capped its 300th anniversary year with the achievement of a new milestone – a remarkable four five-star ratings in the 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide.
De Grendel celebrates its 300th anniversary this year, marking three centuries of a Cape landmark whose story – and that of its fourth-generation owners, the Graaff family – is deeply woven into South Africa’s history.
