About Spookfontein Wines
Spookfontein Wines is a small wine estate in the gorgeous Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, just 15 minutes from Hermanus. The property, which dates back to 1847, is an indigenous fynbos paradise, with only 14 hectares under vine and olive trees growing quietly on the path to the spectacular hilltop cellar.
The term ‘Spook’ (Dutch for ‘ghost’) comes from the idea that a “spirit” can be found inside the swirls of the flowing farm spring. Perhaps it was the magical appeal of this farmland that drew the Davis family here two decades ago. Spookfontein is now an outstanding boutique wine farm thanks to the Davis family and the many brilliant hands that continue to work with them.
