Waterford Estate is situated in one of the worlds most visually arresting pockets of paradise. Nestled in the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley, in the world renowned Stellenbosch region, this 120 hectare property owned by Jeremy and Leigh Ord and managed by partner and Cellar master Kevin Arnold. The Estate boasts old citrus groves, rolling lawns, water features and fragrant lavender and rosemary beds. Youd be forgiven for thinking you were in the heart of Provence or the Spanish countryside, with your first glimpse of this enchanting realm. However, we are immensely proud of our uniquely South African location and the rich diversity of our indigenous flora and fauna. The winery was styled along the engaging terracotta design and was the result of winemaker Kevin Arnold and architect Alex Walker teaming up to create the home of Waterford Estate wines. The centre piece of the magnificent courtyard is the Waterford Estate fountain. This feature has been immortalized in the Waterford Estate label and represents a fundamental component of our philosophy. We believe in the old adage of less is more. There is nothing pretentious or ostentatious about the estate, rather the visual impact is one of a seamless whole, which complements rather than detracts from the surrounding natural beauty. Welcome to our world, a world where the passing of time and the change in seasons only add rich layers of character and charm to the scene

    Wonderful winery with a touch of Tuscany in the heart of the Stellenbosch wine country! Our waiter was attentive, passionate and knowledgeable about the wines. The settings is quaint with a boutique winery vibe, quiet and very relaxing. We haven't tried the main food but the platter for 2 is great value for money. Needless to say that the wines we tasted stood out from other wineries in the area. I would highly recommend a visit to Waterford Estate!

    Waterford is a beautiful estate with top-notch food. The wines are well-balanced and of good quality. While the service was informative, it was not always friendly. Before coming, I knew that this is a more expensive estate to visit, but it still felt a bit stingy in terms of the quantity of wine offered on the tastings compared to other estates in the same price range. The atmosphere is lovely, but not always comfortable, perhaps because of the service that did not always feel friendly, and sometimes a little bit judgemental. I feel like I would recommend Waterford only to more affluent people.
