Ship to California




One of the Cape's oldest and most celebrated farms, De Grendel takes it's name from the Dutch word for "gate". The farm used to be the gateway through which travellers headed to points north would depart Cape Town. One of South Africa's most prominent politicians and businessmen at the time, Sir David Graaff, purchased the farm in the 1890s. The vineyards and winery are now managed by Sir David's great grandson, De Villiers.

The closest winery to the city centre, De Grendel benefits from cool ocean breezes making its terroir well-suited to Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, among others.
