Avec Plaisir Pinot Noir Cottage
- Situated on the southern slopes of the Klein River mountains and overlooking the peaceful village of Stanford, this historic estate is steeped in Overberg history.
An environmentally friendly approach to farming includes a Biodiversity and Wine Initiative Championship Award. The Klein River Conservancy ensures that the local fynbos, abundant wildlife and vineyards can thrive together in total harmony.
Farm hospitality and tradition rule at Sir Robert Stanford Estate and visitors can explore the wine shop stocked with premium Estate wines, indulge in a home-made meal at our renowned restaurant, grab a bottle of grappa at Die Stookhuis, catch a tram ride through our vineyards or simply watch the sun set over one of our lakes.
Our Padstal is also a popular roadside grocer packed with fresh fruit and veggies straight from the farm.
For the outdoor enthusiasts we have numerous mountain bike trails. And those seeking solitude can take a meditative stroll around our labyrinth. Fun for the whole family or a romantic day out.
