Vergenoegd is a Dutch word meaning ‘satisfaction has been achieved’. The Faure family have owned this farm for six generations. The farm was granted land rights in 1696 and the Faures took ownership in the 1820’s. The Cape Dutch homestead dates back to 1773 and has been declared an historic monument. At the helm of the winemaker is John Faure.

The old cellar keeps new French oak barrels within in its walls as well as modern machinery. John aims to produce full bodied red wines release only 3 years after vintage with a potential to mature for 10 years or more and uses selective harvesting and minimal irrigation. The National Red Wine Show has named the Vergenoegd Cabernet Sauvignon champion and Grand Champion a total of four times.

The Pomegranate restaurant was opened in 1995 and is situated in the old manor house. You can dine al fresco with mountain views or within the intimate setting inside. Michael Israel offers casual fine dining and marvellous food and wine pairings.

Harvest time brings an exciting opportunity for visitors to be a part of. Harvest dinners are hosted in the cellar during March and guests get o be a part of the winemaking process, sip their delicious reds and be treated to a starter tasting plate, duck or game as a main course and some chocolate fondant for dessert.
