Bezalel Wine and Brandy Estate

Orange River Wine Route


Four generations of Bezuidenhouts have worked the fertile flood-plains of the Northern Cape's Great Gariep (Orange) River valley, otherwise known as the Green Kalahari, since the early 1940's. What started as a small-holding with rotational crops, in the beginning, today houses a boutique wine cellar and artisan distillery, wedding venue, farmstay accommodation, and a tasting room with a child-friendly café. Renowned for its brandy, the estate also produces a range of wines from its plantings of amongst others Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Stay in the original farmhouse built on the Estate... a lovingly restored 1930's Cape-Dutch style house with wide "stoep" overlooking our irrigation dam and the seemingly endless vines of the lower-Orange River Valley... Bezalel Estate Country House offers farm-style accommodation with authentic Green Kalahari hospitality.


Bezalel Estate's Garden Café offers farmhouse breakfast and light lunches, inspired by our local cuisine. At Bezalel we believe in a farm-to-table approach whenever possible and the fresh produce used are either grown on the farm or sourced from nearby farmers and local vendors. Natural and organic ingredients are preferred and creatively combined to create nourishing & delicious dishes with authentic Green Kalahari flavours.
