South Hill Vineyards is situated in the sought-after Elgin wine-producing area. With its mostly south-facing slopes and fertile soils, this farm has developed into a premium wine-producing estate. Some of the grapes are also purchased by some of the most highly rated wine estates in the Western Cape.
Accommodation consists of a luxury 4 star six bed-roomed villa near the restaurant and venue area, and a well-appointed honeymoon cottage privately situated on the banks of a dam among the vineyards.
The current area planted to vines is about 24 ha, with plans to plant another 11 ha. About 2/3 are white varieties, mainly Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, and the rest are high-value red varieties. A total of six dams, of which the biggest holds over 250 000 m³, supply ample water storage, and the water is sourced from the Groenland water scheme.
The main buildings and their approximate ground floor areas are:
Wine Cellar and bonded store - 950 m²
Farm operations store - 240 m²
Admin and Offices - 200 m²
Restaurant and events - 290 m²
Luxury Villa - 335 m²
Laundry - 80 m²
Honeymoon Cottage - 55 m²
This farm is meticulously kept and run, and the majority of the current staff will be available to carry on managing this going concern.
Further information is available on request.
If you are considering a purchase like this, give me a call, it is not often that a wine estate of this caliber becomes available.
