Situated on the Stellenbosch Wine Route, Zevenwacht has viticultural roots which penetrate deep into the historic past of South Africa. While literally meaning seven expectations, our name exemplifies the abundant delights which await visitors to the farm. A leader in wine tourism, we were one of the first wine estates to establish a restaurant, hotel and conference facility, cheesery and spa on the estate.
Our wines are distinguished by their classic style and finely crafted elegance. Our Winemaker, Jacques Viljoen, honours century-old wine-making traditions, yet is boldly innovative, welcoming the contribution that modern technology makes to the vinification of premier wines. Covering 120 hectares of the 450 hectare property, the vineyards are ideally situated for the growing of quality grapes. The farm is characterised by good quality, varied soils and the vineyards have been selectively planted with red and white noble varietals.
Seating sixty-four delegates, our Auditorium is lavishly equipped with the most advanced technological facilities which include a high quality multi-scan projector, video sourcing capability, audio geometry, recording equipment, video conference and computer facilities capable of interfacing with the international technology of overseas lecturers. There is also a professional sound support system coupled with a hi-tech stereo mixer. We have anticipated the demands of the next-generation business world by installing advanced technology that makes us a first-league player in the international conferencing field. With the additional advantages of smaller breakaway and meeting rooms, full administrative support and a team of professionally trained staff running it, our conference centre is well prepared to meet the most challenging of corporate requirements.
We offer two impressive function venues. The Lapa is set in a wooded glade above the lake. This outdoor all weather venue provides a charming informal venue suitable for a maximum of 80 guests. The thatched, air-conditioned Alfresco is ideal for any occasion including unforgettable weddings, conferences and product launches. It is a well-equipped versatile venue for up to 220 guests.
