The origin of Romond Vineyards dates back to 1720. It was then that Michiel Romond became the first person to successfully farm the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain’s West Peak. André and Rhona Liebenberg now work the soil and own this family-run wine estate.
The terroir at the slopes of the West Peak have proved perfect for Cabernet Franc. The Liebenberg’s have planted 9ha of Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinotage. Pop into the charming old cellar where old world meets trendy. Taste a blend of classic varieties in the Romond Rebus and Romond Impromptu- a lovely Pinotage Rosé. The owners have a profound respect for the environment and use minimal intervention when crafting wines.
