Situated on Botmaskop Peak along the Helshoogte Pass and once served as a lookout point for ships sailing into Table Bay Harbour. Farmers could start transporting their produce to the harbour upon hearing the signal. John Platter bought the farm (known as Avontuur at the time) in 1982. Taking in the illustrious view over the valley, he renamed it Delaire Estate meaning ‘From the Sky’. When Laurence Graff purchased the estate in 2003, he set about developing a luxury, world-class winery, gardens, restaurant, hotel, spa and art gallery.

Delaire Graff adds a finesse and opulence to the Winelands with its contemporary art, advanced architecture and beautiful décor. You’ll be hard-pressed to find views like this anywhere else and combined with knowledge tasting assistances and top service, this experience is remarkable. It’s R10 per wine tasted with a minimum of three wines and they do not waive the fee on purchase. While it can turn out to be an expensive wine tasting, their premium wines deliver. Two favourites are the Botmaskop 2008 and the Coastal Cuvée Sauv Blanc 2010.

Linger in the wine lounge a bit later in summer and enjoy cocktails on the leather couches with canapés and musical accompaniment. Delaire Graff’s Restaurant offers Chef Christiaan Campbell’s ‘bistro-chic’ cuisine, a collection of South African art and a surreal setting out on the terrace beneath the trees.
