About Sauvignon Country Lodge
Welcome to Sauvignon Country Lodge, a 100 year-old classified wine farm in Cape Dutch style in the heart of the Cape Winelands, renovated to perfection and uniting its beautiful historic features with all modern amenities.
The four luxuriously appointed suites boast breathtaking views of endless vineyards, fruit orchards and majestic mountain ranges. Sauvignon Country Lodge features a 4000m˛ landscaped garden (including swimming pool, pond, breakfast terrace and braai area) and is located on a rural country road amidst the vineyards, only 4km away from the impressive Groenberg Mountains.
Still, Sauvignon remains within walking distance from the town center and its university, so very close to shops, restaurants and many award winning wine estates (Wellington was awarded international ‘Top Wine Area’ in 2010).
A Continental breakfast including a health corner and a pastry selection is served.
Weddings and Functions
Our unique setting with the huge landscaped garden and several nicely furnished design terraces is the perfect background for smaller functions and family weddings up to 40 people.
Wellington is a honeymooners’ paradise, and Sauvignon Country Lodge is the ideal location for the most important day of your life. We have a honeymoon suite available.
Activities and Attractions
Just 70 kilometers away from Cape Town and its international airport, we are within easy reach of various prominent tourist towns and attractions … such as Table Mountain, the Waterfront, Robben Island, Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach and its penguin colonies, the historical villages Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.
Further, our own village Wellington has numerous leisure activities to offer; mountain bike hikes (guided by the owner Kris), horse trails through the vineyards and at the foothills of Bain’s Kloof Pass, safari’s and game drives, whale watching, golf, fishing, cellar tours and Cape Mountain Whisky tasting.
We welcome bikers and specialize in ‘Vineyard Discovery by Bike’, which is a great way to taste the typical Boland hospitality at some of our neighboring award-winning wineries and keep in touch with nature along the way. Bikes and road books are provided at Sauvignon Country Lodge and you can choose from different wine trails (from an easy 5km to a more demanding 20km), always featuring three tastings at the vineyard and a tasteful lunch in the second winery on the track.
The strongly recommended ‘Wine Route’ starts in our backyard and we are situated along the touristic ‘Garden Route’ and ‘Route 62’ which is the most travelled itinerary in the Western Cape. Moreover Wellington is an important stop on the ‘Brandy Route’ as it’s home to South Africa’s finest pot-still brandies and whisky's.
Sauvignon Country Lodge provides a magnificent outdoor experience for adventurers, a romantic getaway for couples and a home away from home for families. Our child-friendly pool and playground will make the little ones’ stay as unforgettable as yours.
