Stellenbosch Properties presents Delaire Graff Estate
As most of us were taught, the French Huguenots landed in the cape in the 1600’s, well 1688 to be precise, mainly through invitations from the Dutch East India Company. With them came their passion for wines. When they arrived in the Cape they were allocated a valley for their crops. The only issue was they would have to venture over the Helshoogte Pass.
On the crest of this pass is where you will find the elegantly beautiful Delaire Graff Estate. Back in those days they had lookout, which was used to watch for ships entering the Table Bay Harbour in order to take their crops to sell.
But let’s move past the history, and talk about this lovely wine estate and its beautiful venue!
Today, apart from its history, Delaire Graff Estate has grown and developed into a beautiful wine estate which is must visit for any wine lover. I personally think it’s a must visit just for the beautiful views on offer.
The Wine Estate has some delicious wines to offer us all from the lovely Delaire Shiraz 2009 to the Delaire Chardonnay 2010. Each wine offers its unique blend of history, Culture and tradition that must be experienced to be understood. But each wine is made with passion, made with love most importantly made with care.
