Delaire Graff Estate

Wine Estate, Stellenbosch


Offering sweeping views across the Stellenbosh Valley and their vineyards, the Delaire Graff Estate is an experience that is, justifiably, hard to beat. A sophisticated and luxurious Spa retreat with Cape Dutch glamour that gives the traveller a rare taste of the world of fine art, exemplary cuisine and unparalleled service. 


Choose from ten incredible cottages, each sumptuously decorated by world renowned David Collins Studios and with their own private heated plunge pool and sun deck. All are generously proportioned with floor to ceiling windows for breathtaking views over the local hills and vineyards with some extending all the way to Cape Point. Presidential and Owner’s lodges are also available and a lodge butler is on hand for your every need.


Indulge in the award winning Spa or play golf overlooking the sunset over Table Mountain. Experience world class wine tasting from the estate’s extensive wine cellar. Shop for Graff diamonds in the exclusive in-house jewelry store or take guided walks in the vineyard. Try wine tasting or hiking in Franschhoek’s Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve. Horse riding, trout fishing, hot air ballooning or even a visit to the nearby Bonheur Crocodile Farm.

The estate is just 45 minutes from the centre of Cape Town but also in one of South Africa’s most impressive wine regions – the Cape Winelands – with numerous vineyards and magical winetasting experiences at hand.


Browse Laurence Graff’s private art collection – with its centerpiece being of the 20th century’s most iconic works, Vladimir Tretchikoff’s Chinese Girl. Enjoy various world-class dining options on the grounds – such as the main restaurant Indochine. Explore the estate’s 49 acres of vineyards.

Immerse yourself in the private cinema room, wine cellar tour, techno gym, 22 metre infinity pool and jacuzzi and free wi-fi throughout
