Durbanville Wine Route


Diemersdal Wines on the slopes of the Dorstberg produces a diverse range of wines that harness generations of skill to realise expressions of Durbanville’s terroir; the sum of interaction between topography, soil structure and climate. Its history began in 1698 when the farm was first allocated. Since 1885, six generations of the Louw family have made wine at Diemersdal. The main varieties grown on the estate are Sauvignon Blanc and Pinotage. Some 200ha of vines are grown in dryland conditions. Visitors to Diemersdal Wine Estate can experience Cape hospitality at its tasting venue and atmospheric country restaurant.

Enjoy the flavours of the countryside and the relaxing farm ambiance in an old stable, restored with care by the Louw family, where they’ve been making wine for six generations. Here locally grown and regionally sourced produce inspire Chef Martin De Kock to blend his classical French training with the flavours of Provencal France, Spain and a touch of Asia. The herbs and some of the vegetables are from the kitchen garden, the preserves and pickles home-made and the bread freshly baked. Diemersdal Farm Eatery is closed on Mondays.
