De Grendel Durbanville

Facilties: Restaurant, Function Venue

Things to do: Open Sundays, Wine Tasting

De Grendel means “the latch” in Dutch – this farm was historically the gateway on the route to the inland settlements of Durbanville and Stellenbosch which had to be opened to traverse the Tygerberg.

Like so many memorable stories about the origin of great wines and farms, the Graaff family tell a historical tale steeped in heritage.

The farm has been in the Graaff family for three generations. Baronet, Sir David Graaff, retired politician and leading wine farmer, continues the legacy left by his father and grandfather before him.

The tasting room has a prime spot on the top level with an expansive view, a fireplace for winter and a veranda for sunny days. Food and wine matching will be taken to new heights with flights of food created around the main character of the wine.


Our restaurant unlocks new ways to enjoy fine food with fine wine. Diners sensing Michelin-star excellence on the palate will be spot-on at De Grendel Restaurant.

Farm produce (from hand-churned butter to honey, guinea fowl to pasture-raised meat) and ingredients sourced from local suppliers are given an inventive, modern edge.

A unique design feature is the glass-walled kitchen with its wrap-around views. Diners can watch the kitchen brigade at work, when not drinking in the vistas of vineyards, the working farm and Table Mountain.
