Strandveld Vineyards

Africa's southernmost winery and vineyards

About the winery
Nestled between Elim and Cape Agulhas, and just 9km from the sea, lies the secluded Strandveld Vineyards. Driven by a deep passion for premium quality wines and the spirit of discovery, Strandveld Vineyards stands proudly as the southernmost winery in Africa. Unique in every sense of the word, our wines reflect their wild origins of diverse terroir and a cool, maritime climate through remarkable complexity and singularity. This wind-swept winery derives its name from the belt of land which spans the tempestuous tip of Africa’s southernmost coastline. At almost 35 degrees below the equator, this part of our fair Cape is characterised by severe winds, billowing mist and below average temperatures. A unique combination of maritime climate, alternating sites and diverse soil types work together to create the terroir which distinguishes the wines of Strandveld Vineyards.
