Project Description

Jacaranda Wines

Situated in Wellington in the beautiful Cape Winelands, Jacaranda was built 80 years ago and can look back onto a longstanding history of wine making.

In the heart of Wellington, the little Jacaranda Wine Estate is ready to welcome you and share their interesting wines.

After lovingly restoring the Manor House and the Holiday Cottage, owner René Reiser is now tackling the vineyards.  New plantings of 2.2 ha of Chenin Blanc (0.5 ha), Viognier (0.5 ha) and Shiraz (1 ha) will go into the soil in August 2011.  These new plantings will complement the already existing vineyard which is planted to beautiful old Chenin Vines, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Adhering to organic farming methods has brought back an abundance of bird life to the farm.  Come in for a wine tasting or stay overnight and enjoy the 15m long pool and all attractions the Winelands have to offer at your doorsteps.
