Award-winning and renowned

The combination of Maritime and mountain is a very unique terroir, and here in Stellenbosch it creates the award-winning Delaire Graff wines.  A cooling Atlantic sea breeze washes over our steeply sloping vineyards giving us a rich intensity of fruit.


Delaire Graff wines rank among the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. The unique terroir, on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass, is something Delaire’s ambitious winemaker explores harvest after harvest.


A long, slow ripening season ensures world-class clarets and red wines big in structure with soft tannins and elegance. The white wines capture the freshness of the harvest, while irresistible rosé and a sparkling Brut completes an elegantly balanced portfolio. Delaire Graff is proud to have achieved First Growth status in South Africa – reward for creating the country’s most desirable wines on first pressing.



Delaire Graff Estate sits on the slopes of the Botmaskop Mountain peak. Around 20 hectares of vineyards are planted with Bordeaux reds and Chardonnay pesticide-free grapes expertly tended by hand, which thrive in our special climate.

Delaire’s cutting edge 450-tonne gravity fed Estate winery is a celebration of both old and new.  Once harvested, grapes receive great care on their journey from vine to glass to capture the natural flavours and intensity of South African sunshine.

The Wine Lounge


The Wine Lounge is Delaire’s welcoming art-filled tasting space and an elegant retreat in which to to relax over a glass of Delaire Graff wine.  Lacquered floors lead out to floor to ceiling windows that frame our famous view.  The perfect place to relax in summer is our outside terrace, or spend winter inside with a crackling fire.
