Springfontein Wine Estate produces multi-award winning wine for the international and local market. It is named after a natural spring that feeds into a vlei, which in turn is used to irrigate the 25 hectares of established vineyards. The soil is 100% limestone and ecological conditions are similar to the renowned wine growing regions of Champagne and a certain area of Burgundy.
The flagship white and red wines are typical South African varieties, namely the Jil’s Dune Chenin Blanc and Jonathan’s Ridge Pinotage. The Terroir Selection range is most popular with the estate’s specialist retailers, while the more affordable Sopiensklip range has been included in the Best Value Wine Guide 2011. The farm extends beyond 500 hectares and is a haven for nature lovers and wine lovers alike.
Tasting Room now open 7 days a week.
Monday to Friday from 09:00 – 16:00

Now, having moved their lives to South Africa, their goal is to establish ‘’Springfontein Eats’’ as a gastronomic destination with Michelin star quality. The food features a strong locavore leaning with hints of molecular gastronomy, though never at the expense of flavour.
