Top Boland Wine Estate in Prime Position against the Helderberg Lew Geffen Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to offer to the market an amazing opportunity to own an established winery brand and facility, vineyards and lots of land against the Helderberg Mountain in the famous wine producing area of Stellenbosch. This recognised Estate sits on 5 titles and covers a total of 87ha with 19 ha under vines. The Estate is located on the Stellenbosch wine route and is positioned between Stellenbosch and Somerset West and 40 minutes from Cape Town’s famous beaches. The cellar assumes a prominent position, looking onto the sprawling suburbs, with Table Mountain in the distance. Seasonal mists, however, shroud the vines – some literally planted below the top perpendicular cliffs – protecting them from the intense heat of summer. From this exceptional position the sweeping views are completely magnificent, but the farm is just a short distance to Somerset College, Stellenbosch University, Stellenbosch and Somerset West and popular schools. This successful wine farm has 2 main residences plus 10 Staff cottages. As a diversion from the traditional Cape Dutch Farmhouse style, one of the homes is Mediterranean in style fitting with the original translation of the name of the farm. The vineyards are planted on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain between 300 m and 600 m above sea level. These elevated vineyards naturally are cooler and have the benefit of direct sea breezes off False Bay. The soils are fairly homogenous throughout the farm. Deep, fertile clay based soils originating from decomposed shale and granite, provide an excellent medium within which to grow our vines. Drainage is excellent due to adequate pebble and stone distribution, and moisture retention is promoted by the fairly high clay levels in our soils. This is a unique opportunity to acquire one of the finest and most respected wine estates in the Boland. Opportunities like this are scarce. The position is unbeatable, the infrastructure impressive and the wines are acclaimed. The estate offers the opportunity for any new owner to build upon the existing facilities to further enhance and improve the estate. Ideally positioned close to Stellenbosch town, a residential development on some of the vacant ground could be investigated at a later stage.
