Sir Robert Stanford Estate, Stanford, Overberg

Sir Robert Stanford Wine Estate, Overberg

Sir Robert Stanford Estate is situated on the slopes of the Kleinrivier Mountains, with a scenic vista over Stanford. The hand crafted grappa and fruit spirits are distilled on the farm, under the watchful eye of Johan de Villiers. The vineyards on the granite slopes overlooking the Kleinrivier Valley are ideal for producing wines which are an expression of the unique cool climate terroir.

This historic estate was producing wine in the 1890’s, but by 1935, the owner removed all the vines and stills to end “decadent” behaviour. Thank heavens, Jan and Madre Malan, started the millennium by restoring the vineyards producing the noble white and red varietals.
