About the winery:
This historic estate, situated between Paarl and Franschhoek, was founded in 1688 by French Huguenot Charles Marais. It was his grandson Jacob who built the mansion back in 1764. Throughout the years, this vast estate of 1,000 hectares took its current form. Today's winemaker Neil Bester is very driven and monitors the wines closely. The vineyards are situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg and are in the skilled hands of viticulturist Hannes van Rensburg. Flagship wine is a Cabernet-based Bordeaux with Shiraz.
