Waterkloof Estate, a biodynamic marvel on the outskirts of Somerset West renowned for its sustainable wine farming ethics, reaffirmed its status at the Great Wine Capitals (GWC) Best of Wine Tourism Awards 2013 by clinching South Africa’s Best Architecture and Landscape title for the second consecutive year. In addition to retaining this sought-after title, Waterkloof also excelled with second place in both the Sustainable Wine Tourism Practices and Wine Tourism Restaurants categories of this annual competition run by the GWC.
“To win for a second consecutive year is a great honour for the Waterkloof team. No bribery involved!” shares Waterkloof’s owner Paul Boutinot.In 2009, this magnificently appointed ‘cellar in the sky’ – where even the steep incline provides functional advantages in their winemaking process – triumphed as the first South African architectural feat for Castle Rock Design. NMC Construction was the main contractor on Waterkloof’s building project.
