Stellenbosch Wine Routes


Zevenwacht on the Stellenbosch Wine Route is a modern wine farm with a 300-year history. Owned and managed by the Johnson family, the estate has a strong commitment to historic and cultural preservation, as well as conservation of the surrounding indigenous environment. Two locations provide the grapes for the Zevenwacht winery - the home vineyard on the estate's 450ha property and the farm Zevenrivieren, at the crest of the Helshoogte Pass. Other activities at Zevenwacht include a restaurant, picnics, a spa and accommodation.
