In Their Words
Peter Falke History & Location
The exclusive winery of Peter Falke is nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg Mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, just 10 minutes drive from the centre of the historic town.
Dating back to the 18th Century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The stately old homestead is partnered by a ‘boutique’ winery, contemporary wine tasting room and luxurious outdoor lounge which have established Peter Falke Wines as the most elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands. We also have a jungle gym and lawns for kids.
The Falke family has been doing business in South Africa since 1969. Peter Falke was born in Germany and his dream to own a farm came true when he acquired Groenvlei Farm in 1995. His wife Danièle is French and an interior designer. Her taste and talent is expressed in the smallest details at Groenvlei, which is home to rambling magenta bougainvillea, delicate scented roses and wild lavender growing alongside carefully cultivated vineyards.
We believe the quality of an exclusive wine is achieved from the quality of its grapes and we hope you enjoy our exceptional wines, which reflect our lifestyles, cultures and personalities.
