Overgaauw Wine Estate, Stellenbosch

Gift & Specialty Shop · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Overgaauw, a wine estate of distinction in the Stellenbosch Kloof, was founded by Abraham van Velden in 1905 on land owned by his family since 1783. For the past century the Van Veldens have done pioneering work and produced acclaimed wines on Overgaauw, one of the oldest family run estates in the area.

The estate’s 70ha of south facing vineyards are planted on deep weathered granite soils, cooled by sea breezes from False Bay, provide the ideal meso climate for the cultivation of noble grape varieties. Meticulous viticultural practices, including varietal site selection and low yields, ensure that only the very best grapes are used for Overgaauw wines. These are vinified in the renovated and expanded old cellar, fusing modern winemaking techniques with 100 years of experience. Very few things remain exceptional for four generations, but Overgaauw’s wines have done just that.

A proud family tradition of producing quality wines and one of the most beautiful settings in the Cape make Overgaauw Wine Estate well worth the visit

  • Absolutely amazing assisting with Marshalls to water points for race
  • My girlfriend took me for a picnic at Overgaauw a few weeks ago. What a surprize. At first things seemed a little out of place, but as we sat down to enjoy our lunch things changed. We received an amazing sparkling wine and an incredible selection of food. The staff was friendly and more than willing to help. We ended up taking some of the food home as there was just too much. I will be back to taste their wine. Thank you Overgaauw for giving us an amazing picnic!
  • Simple and unpretentious. Locally sourced produce prepared perfectly. Absolutely delicious food!
  • Russell & Camilla have created a wonderful setting where they create amazing food. Guests are seated on their own, with bowls of food delivered to the table. The food is simple, fresh, with loads of flavour. Russell will advise you on the wine depending on the meal being served, and his recommendation was spot-on. You will have to book at least 1-2 weeks in advance and prepare to be surprised! Visited February 2014
