About Babylon’s Peak
Babylon’s Peak is a private cellar situated on the slopes of the Paardeberg Mountains, nestled between Malmesbury and Paarl. Throughout four generations, the knowledge and passion for winemaking have been handed down, preserving a rich legacy that endures to this day. The current winemaker, Stephan, and his father proudly carry forward this tradition.
The name Babylon’s Peak draws its inspiration from the farm’s towering granite peak, locally referred to as ‘Babylonstoren’ or ‘The Tower of Babylon’ in English. This prominent geological feature lends its name to the estate and serves as a symbol of its unique character. Notably, Babylon’s Peak boasts some of the Swartland region’s highest vineyards, positioned at an elevation of approximately 700 meters above sea level.
