The Wine Farm...
Our venue is magical. You will love staying here! The cottages are comfortable, luxurious, affordable and settled between the beautiful vineyards of D ‘Aria.
D’Aria Vineyards comprises of two wine farms, namely Doordekraal and Springfield. The history of Springfield dates back to 1698 when the governor of the Cape first granted this farmland, then known as “Hooge Bergs Vallei” (later “Springfield”), thereby making it one of the oldest and most significant farms, in what will be known as the greater, modern-day Cape Town.
The vineyards are situated at the back of the Tygerberg Hills, mainly in north-facing and east-facing rows. Situated 10km from the Atlantic Ocean, the sea breeze cools the grapes at night after the warm summer days. The vineyards are all on slopes that have rich and fertile soils. With an above average rainfall, there is no need to irrigate the vines. The clay-textured soils preserve all the nutrition and water during the winter months letting nature control the quality of the grapes in the warmer summer months.
The 12 fully serviced air-conditioned cottages offer superior comfort and quality with a high standard of furnishings and services.
