Let's Drink to That...

In line with Grootbos’ endeavour to support local economy and community, all of the wines served at our restaurants, with the exception of our sparkling wines and champagne, come from within the Overberg region. Thanks to the superior quality of the award winning wines produced by local cellars, we needn’t compromise on quality to achieve this.

In addition to sourcing our wines locally, many of the wine estates on our list are members of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI). The BWI is a pioneering partnership between the South African wine industry and the conservation sector. The goals are to minimise the further loss of threatened natural habitat, and contribute to sustainable wine production, through the adoption of biodiversity guidelines by the South African wine industry.

An Expression of the Landscape

Grootbos presents a variety of ways to discover and experience the wonderful wines of the region. Besides the extensive wine menu at our two restaurants, you can request a food and wine pairing, book an exclusive dinner in the intimate Wine Cellar, do a tasting at the Champagne Bar, or go on a guided wine tour to the surrounding winelands.

What better way to get to know an area than by tasting its wine, its food and meeting its people?
