Journeys End Vineyard

A boutique family owned vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Hottentot Holland Mountain range. One of Stellenbosch's hidden gems.

About the winery
In 1995 the Gabb family (originally from Shropshire, UK) took control of this picturesque wine farm surrounded by 20 ha of gorgeous vineyards. They have invested heavily in both the vineyards and the winery since then – with the estate growing to 120 ha by July 2011. The initial Journey’s End investment was made by Roger Gabb, who, at that time, was Founder and Managing Director of Western Wines. Following the sale of Western Wines to Constellation brands in 2006, the family turned their focus to their estate, Journey’s End. Upon taking the helm in 2007, Roger’s son Rollo has since invested further into the estate through vineyard purchases and infrastructure. In February 2010, Journey’s End completed work on a marvelous, state of the art 350-ton crush winery, set at the heart of the beautiful Journey’s End vineyards, finished with a stunning tasting room and spacious terrace overlooking the nearby coast. While completing the new winery, Journey’s End successfully.

History & Geography
A Hands-off Philosophy The family’s philosophy is one of minimum intervention. The aim of which is to create top-quality, single-vineyard and appellation wines that intricately integrate the tension between remaining true to the terroir, and finding their own unique expression of it. Commitment to Sustainability The Gabbs are entirely committed to being environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. Those behind Journey’s End have a keen eye on the sustainable and ethical production of their premium wine. There is a tangible and deep respect for the environment, clearly apparent in farming practices that are integrated as closely to nature as is possible. As well as being WEITA, IPW and BWI champion status, Journey’s End converted to Solar power in 2014. The farm became fully Fairtrade certified from April 2017.
