The soaring peaks of the Simonsberg Mountain have long served as a guardian to the birth, renaissance and continuing triumph of our Paarl wine estate. It is on the rolling foothills of this majestic mountain that vineyards thrive, producing grapes of exceptional richness that would have found favour with our Huguenot founder, Charles Marais.
The gardens, manicured lawns and rolling vista of vines invite you to breathe in the elegance of yesteryear while experiencing superior quality and service.
