Melkboomsdrift Boutique Wine is an 18 hectare family wine farm. The farm produces a variety of wonderful red wine including Pinotage, Shiraz, Ruby Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The grapes are hand harvested and the estate produces between three and four tons annually. Hilsa, the owner, also oversees the fermentation process of the wines in the small cellar which is situated just across from her farm house. So you can be assured this wine is made with great care and attention. The wines are aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 18 months and are well worth stopping to have a taste (and buying a few bottles to take home)!
If you need a place to stay for the night there is accommodation at this working wine farm. So why not spend the night at Melkboomsdrift Lodge. You'll even be treated to a private wine tour on arrival if you so desire.
