Why does the band "Earth, Wind and Fire" keep springing to mind. Maybe it's because the natural force of these elements have been clearly visible this summer. Talk about global warming – surely we have to be believers by now. We have always done our bit to attempt to neutralise our carbon footprint and the recent COP21 talks in Paris have succeeded in a plan to slow down the effects of this phenomenon.
Although the heat waves continue unabated, the Western Cape has been better off than most of the country. The vineyards are healthy, but the yield will be down which will result in greater intensity of flavour. We recorded the earliest start of harvest ever and everything promises to ripen at the same time. It will be a frenetic harvest, but we are confident we can work our magic.




Apart from all the awards garnered for our wines last year, our attention to sustainability was also rewarded.


At the Great Wine Capitals Global Network gala dinner held in Spain last year, where the Best of wine Tourism awards were handed out, we were announced the South African winners in the Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices category.


We were also a winner at the Getaway Nedbank Green wine awards for our sustainability projects.



Amazing Race

On the weekend of the 19th of March we are hosting an "Amazing Race" with an Easter Theme. Wine related challenges will be completed by the various teams entering the Race and the winners will receive prizes. Contact René at Villiera on 021 865 2002 or for entry details.
Wednesday Soiree

To step up social activity at Villiera and provide an additional opportunity to taste and purchase wine, we are introducing a monthly event on the last Wednesday of each month as from April. These Wednesday Soirees will take place from 17h00 to 20h00 and the format will be adapted to the season. A R50 entry fee will cover a tasting of featured wines and light entertainment. Interesting food will be available for sale at food stalls. There will be a limit to the number of people we can accommodate and we suggest booking with René. Further details will be available on our website.



The R101 that runs past our entrance is in the process of being upgraded and a stop/go has been installed but only after our entrance. Turning in at Villiera looks as though it would be complicated but it has not been affected. We apologise for the inconvenience and trust that the road works will not put you off visiting Villiera.



Game Drives

Drives through our Wild Life Sanctuary are becoming increasingly popular and are available Monday to Saturday.


Please don't forget to book for these with Ashleigh on 021 865 2002 or


Domaine Grier

Our first 2015 wines from Domaine Grier have arrived in South Africa. It was a wonderful vintage in the South of France and you should enjoy the refreshing Rosé and the zesty Chardonnay that are now available.
