Overview
More
Vergenoegd Wine Estate is a Heritage site and one of the oldest wine estates on the Stellenbosch Wine Route. Easy access from the freeway and merely 20 minutes from Cape Town International Airport. Indian Runner Ducks are used in our vineyards as a form of natural pest control, helping us to eliminate the use of conventional pest control methods. Our army of 1000 ducks parade in front of the Manor House on their way to and back from the vineyards and may be seen by guests on a daily basis. We also offer unique and personalized blending experience (coffee, olive oil, tea and wine) as well as breakfast, lunch and picnics. We host a weekly Family market, every Saturday live entertainment once a month, showcasing some of SA's best musical talent.

Located just off the highway, this winery shines with its more casual feel, highlighted by the duck parade. Check their website to see when the duck parade runs since it is done at different times depending on the day. Really a nice casual setting on...More

Had a fab time on the City sightseeing bus tour. This was the highlight. The wine was fabulous but even better was the running duck parade which takes place several times a day.

It's worth the visit to see the duck parade and learn about their role in pest control in the vineyards. The tasting was conducted by Samantha. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Still happy and smiling after a full day of conducting tastings!
