The Vineyard is owned and managed by Ester Botha, a non-practicing attorney who has turned her passion for all things to do with gardens, decor and weddings into a full-time business. In her own words “In order to host every brides dream wedding you need to be involved personally. Attention to detail is key”.
The Vineyard hosted its first wedding in October 2017 when Brad and Megin entrusted us with their special day. Since that first wedding the Vineyard has grown to become a one stop venue which provides for all the bridal couples possible needs, in all weather conditions. Our venue is French country inspired with white open trusses, chandeliers, fairy lights and white wooden tables. The wrap around deck provides for a wonderful vantage point from where guests can admire the stunning views.
The Vineyard participates in the Pam Golding Garden show each year to showcase our beautiful grounds. Our vineyard which boasts 4 varieties of red grapes were planted in 2013. We plan to bottle our own boutique wine in the not too far future.
The farm is home to Blesbuck, Impala, Buschbuck and several other indigenous species. We have a no hunting policy. Ester has a herd of Saanen and Toggenburg dairy goats which she plans to use for goats cheese.
We have two gorgeous options with beautiful views for your ceremony such as our outdoor chapel and a barn style chapel.
We offer a beautiful 8 sleeper and a 3 sleeper that both offer breathtaking views + three more double rooms with on suite bathrooms.
Our brides can do it themselves or make use of our in house flower and decor division called Botanica for a stress free wedding.
Your guests will be able to relax and enjoy their pre drinks and harvest table snacks at our french wineland inspired pre drink area.
All catering is done in house for quality. We offer a buffet style menu, but can on request offer a plated meal at an additional fee.
You may make use of the vendor of your choice or feel free to ask us for assistance and we will guide you in the right direction.
