Walking through Waterford Wines

Walking through Waterford Wines

Inventive and understated, Waterford Estate near Stellenbosch, South Africa, produces a superb range of ten, mainly red, wines. Unusually, the estate only gives half its terroir to vines and the rest to nature, arguing that one cannot exist without the other.

Apart from tasting the wine, you can also walk through the other half of the estate on their three Porcupine Walks, accompanied by your picnic hamper and Waterford Wine, you can choose from three walks of varying intensity.

You can also take a Wine Drive Safari (where you are driven around the estate, tasting wine from each vine as you pass it) and ending back at the tasting room for a wine and chocolate pairing.

We'd recommend staying at Longfield House, a collection of three beautiful self-catering cottages set in glorious gardens with a large pool at the foot of the Helderberg Mountains. Prices from R2 100 per cottage per night ($147 / £116 / €140)

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
