De Grendel - Wedding Venue | AppyEverAfter
Great wines, magnificent vines. Few places on earth offer such a spectacular outlook. Nestled atop Tygerberg Hill, De Grendel showcases Table Mountain, the city and the seaboard all in one landscape. Just 20 minutes from the city, you will be greeted by a dramatic expanse of land that is home to our vineyards, carefully crafted by Winemaker's Guild member Charles Hopkins, producing prestigious wines of consistently exceptional quality. One of Cape Town’s oldest farms, De Grendel has a magnificent centuries-old history within the Graaff family. Perfectly situated on high, sea-facing slopes overlooking unmatched vistas of Cape Town, it is the only vineyard in the country that is 350m above sea level and only seven kilometres from the sea. This elevated position is not only majestic, but also forms an integral part of the micro-climate that shapes our elegant wines. Our vines benefit from the south-facing aspects and the close moderating effects of the ocean – advantages that are the product of the site. In our viticulture and wine-making, our goal is the expression of the character of this distinctive position.
