The Waterford Wine Estate is a pocket of paradise nestled on the slopes of Helderberg Mountain, in the Blaauwklippen Valley. This 120 hectare estate, which was previously a part of the Stellenrust Farm, was established in 1998 with Waterford Wines (Pty) Ltd, as the brainchild between two families that shared the same vision of creating a truly unique wine farm. Waterford punts a naturalistic philosophy that showcases the finer, yet often overlooked, things in life. It’s not just about winemaking to the Waterford family – it’s about celebrating life, drinking in the moments weaved in-between every conversation and lunch date without worrying about rushing to your next stressful commitment. At this estate, you are encouraged to wander through the ancient citrus groves, delight in the fragrant lavender beds and sip on selected wines while savouring the entire experience.
A favourite attraction to this family-owned estate is the Chocolate and Wine Tasting experience. This unique and decadent flavour combination entails a specially crafted series of milk and dark chocolates to be enjoyed in combination with Waterford Wines’ Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Natural Sweet Wines.
