Groote Post is situated 7km from the cold Atlantic. The cooling effect of the ocean creates an ideal climate in which vines flourish, providing a longer growing season with greater build-up of flavours in the grapes.
Our soils have high clay content, are deep and well-drained, providing the vine with the necessary nourishment throughout the growing season. Spear-headed by the Pentz family, the wine growing team is dedicated to producing world class wines. The cool climate Darling Hills are perfectly suited to Sauvignon Blanc, which makes up a third of all wine produced at Groote Post.
Groote Post has a very rustic, country like, west-coast feel about it, which visitors find very appealing. This makes a visit to Groote Post unforgettable, as the countryside is so different to other wine areas. All buildings are National Monuments dating back to the late 18th century.
