A family owned and managed estate, the current owners of Zevenwacht, Harold and Denise Johnson, purchased the farm in 1992, and have committed themselves to a programme of development to realise Zevenwacht’s rich potential beyond wine production. The estate has a strong commitment to historic and cultural preservation, as well as the active socio-economic upliftment of its workers and their families. Two prime farming locations supply the Zevenwacht winery. The home vineyards on Zevenwacht’s 450-hectare maritime property supplies the bulk of the wine that fills the 1000-tonne cellar. The farm Zevenrivieren, at the crest of the “Helshoogte” (Heights of Hell) Pass, overlooking Stellenbosch, provides equally outstanding grapes and adds fascinating variety to its collection.
