Zevenwacht, situated on the beautiful Stellenbosch Wine Route is a family owned and managed Estate.

Owners, Harold and Denise Johnson have committed themselves to a programme of development to realise Zevenwacht’s rich potential. The estate has a strong commitment to historic and cultural preservation, as well as the active socio-economic upliftment of its workers and their families. Two prime farming locations supply the Zevenwacht winery. The home vineyards on Zevenwacht’s 450 hectare maritime property supplies most of the grapes and Zevenrivieren, the boutique farm at the crest of the “Helshoogte” (Heights of Hell) Pass provides equally outstanding grapes which add fascinating variety to the collection.
