About Us

  • Silkbush Mountain Vineyards is located in Breedekloof in the Breede River Valley, an official nature conservancy area, in the famous Western Cape Winelands.  The Breede River Valley’s beautiful countryside is a relaxing haven from the hustle and bustle of modern Cape Town, just an hour away.
  • We have plenty of wild animals (including leopards), some of South Africa’s best fishing spots, famous mountain biking trails and unsurpassed bird watching.
  • Silkbush Mountain Vineyards is a 138-hectare (341 acre) property acquired in early 2000 from the Pepe Valente family from Pretoria.  The Valente’s had been for many years operating old vineyards and fruit tree orchards with superb soils and substantial undeveloped land.
  • The property is located on a gradually sloped hillside that ultimately becomes towering mountain cliffs. The highest peak is Silkbush Mountain or Sybasberg in Afrikaans. The dramatic landscape rivals anywhere in the world with its sheer beauty and unique terroir especially suited for growing premium grapes.
  • Our grape vines are planted on moderately sloped hillsides up to 700m above sea level.
  • We welcome visitors to stay in our guest cottage with spectacular views of Silkbush Mountain and the vineyards.
