Stanford Wine Route


A second-generation mining engineer from Germany, Dr Johst Weber first set foot on Springfontein in 1994. A year later, he bought the property with a group of friends, retaining the majority share. The first vines were planted in 1998, while the first vintage was in 2005. Vines cover only a minor portion of the more than 500ha property. Some 80% are red varieties, with the focus gradually shifting to Chenin Blanc and Pinotage. The winemaker is Zimbabwean-born Tariro Masayiti. Alongside the wines, Springfontein also has a restaurant and offers farm-stays.
