With the crisp Atlantic Ocean, lush vineyards, cutting mountaintops and ever-clear sky, it’s no wonder that the Western Cape is one of the top wedding destinations worldwide. One of the biggest challenges every bridal couple faces is finding the perfect wedding venue for their Big Day. Essentially, it comes down to five pertinent aspects and Waterkloof Wine Estate meets every requirement.
1. Tailor-made packages
Being such a sought-after wedding destination, many Western Cape based venues are fairly rigid in their offerings for bridal parties, with limited room for negotiation. Waterkloof Wine Estate is fully aware that, although this won’t be the last wedding they organise, it will most likely be the one and only day for the betrothed couple. This means that every aspect of the day must be customised to the bride and groom’s individual requirements, with Waterkloof adapting wherever possible, to meet the couple’s unique needs and desires.
2. Superb Waterkloof wines
Nature is at the heart of the viticulture of this biodynamic Schapenberg-based winery. Waterkloof boasts naturally-balanced grapes, each imbued with their own character and sense of place with minimal human intervention – and maximum care – to ensure the grapes are converted into unmatched wine. These sublime, honest vintages create the perfect wedding beverage, harmoniously accompanying the exquisite cuisine.
3. Quality cuisine
One area where Waterkloof will not compromise is the quality of its cuisine. Chef Gregory Czarnecki echoes the contemporary elegance and integrity of the Waterkloof wines, with every dish created at the venue. His classical cuisine, which takes on a modern French twist, uses only the freshest seasonal ingredients including free-range eggs, farm-reared Schapenberg lamb and home-grown herbs and vegetables – all of which is delicately fused to create an elevated wedding-day feast.
4. Beautiful scenery
Waterkloof Wine Estate boasts awe-inspiring and omnipresent natural splendour. Wedding ceremonies can be held outdoors, with the glorious backdrop of rippling vineyards against the blue mountainside and the glistening ocean in the distance. These spectacular views can be enjoyed from inside the estate’s signature restaurant – the ideal reception venue – with its gorgeously appointed glass promontory, chic wine tasting lounge and gravitational cellar.
5. Ideally located
Waterkloof Wine Estate is situated a stone’s throw away from both Cape Town and Stellenbosch, as well as Cape Town International Airport, allowing for the convenience of city-adjacent access whilst promising nature-ensconced wedding day beauty. Local visitors and those further afield, will easily be able to access the venue with minimal hassle.
