Enjoy Dining with Babylonstoren Wines

This traditional Cape Dutch working wine and fruit farm is surrounded by the mountains of the Drakenstein valley, where nomadic Khoisan communities used to roam for centuries. French Huguenot, Pieter van der Byl, was granted Babylonstoren in 1692. The first vineyards were planted and the original buildings were constructed on the farm.

In the current history of Babylonstoren, the first harvest was celebrated on 11 January 2011 with Chardonnay forming the base wine and come 11 January 2012 saw the farm celebrated the start of 2012 harvest and one year anniversary of winemaking in the cellar. The garden is the pride and joy of this farm with only medicinal and edible plants. You will find yourself in a magical wonderland of indigenous herbs, 7000 clivias in spring, 48 pergolas of climbing roses and fruit trees. Visit the farm to pick your own salad, join in the grape picking or fruit packing, swim in the dam or taste the fine wine grown on the Simonsberg slopes, walk beside the stream or in the vegetable garden. If you stay the night in one of their 12 whitewashed Cape farm cottages, you have access to this wonderful garden, gym and spa and find yourself totally rejuvenated.
