About Graham Beck Wine Estate

Please note, that the tasting room is no longer operational.

The late Graham Beck first purchased a farm, Madeba, in Robertson in 1983 and then a second estate in Franschhoek. Cellar master, Pieter Ferreira, introduced about 15 varieties when the farm was first planted in the mid 1980s.

Their first wine was produced in 1991 and once a solid platform for Cap Classique was formed, Pieter began to focus on their reds. The Franschhoek valley turned out to be perfect for cultivating excellent Shiraz and their maiden vintage Graham Beck Brut was chosen for Nelson Mandela’s Inauguration as president in 1994. Graham Beck not only achieved his vision of elevating Graham Beck Wines to world-class status, but viewed his greatest life achievement as been to provide employment to thousands of people. In 2009, together with his wife, Rhona, they launched the Graham and Rhona Beck Skills centre to assist in developing the skills of the farm community in Robertson.

Three unique tasting experiences await you upon visiting Graham Beck estates. The Classic Tasting is complimentary and features five wines from the Premium and Super Premium ranges. The Deluxe Tasting comprises five wines with bubbly and costs R50 per person. Six wines will be tasted during the Master Class Tasting (R75 per person) and includes an award winning Cap Classique and a food pairing. You will need to book for this tasting which happens at 11h00 daily at the Franschhoek cellar door.
