AN EPIPHANY AMONGST THE GEMS THAT MAKE UP THE WORLD FAMOUS CAPE WINE ROUTE
PHOTOGRAPHED BY DAVID DODDS
A visit will unearth the attention to detail that permeates the Restaurants and compelling decor,
much of it populated by carefully selected and lauded artworks.
Nestled between majestic mountains and overlooking the vineyards of Stellenbosch, I visited the Estate for the first time back in 2003 and felt a strong connection in an instant – it was love at first sight...

So welcome to Delaire Graff Estate.
The combination of Art and Artists blended into a landscape that is epic in whichever direction you look creates a one of a kind destination.
Art in the Landscape
Dylan Lewis’ towering cheetahs grace the Estate’s landscape in castings of solid bronze.
There is a collection featuring over ten pieces in situ.
Other works in the gardens include sculptures by Deborah Bell and Anton Smit.
Exuberance in the Landscaping
Keith Kirsten is the globally recognised talent behind the gardens and landscaping. A celebrity horticulturalist and global award-winning landscape designer, his expansive knowledge of African flora creates an uncompromisingly spectacular display day after day. A fitting backdrop to the Estate – and testament to his boundless passion for plants, people and the environment.
A cooling Atlantic sea breeze washes over the steeply sloping vineyards giving a rich intensity of fruit.
From this, the production of Delaire Graff wines rank among the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere.
I'm sure the Helshoogte Pass that plays host here will be receiving a visit from you once all the research and booking is done.
