The beautiful words spoken weave their amazing love story together in this beautiful place called Andreas
Nestling in the Bovlei Valley, just outside Wellington, a less well known, but very special part of the Cape Winelands, the Andreas Wine Estate is a hidden gem comprising of vineyards, an elegant eighteenth-century manor house and manicured lush gardens. It is the ideal base from which to explore the winelands and Cape Town area, and of course a great choice for a wedding in the Cape winelands.
Archaeological evidence suggests that the site of Andreas was occupied more than 300,000 years ago by the Acheulean people. More recently, Andreas was one of the first Huguenot settlements in the valley and the estate resonates with historical charm and elegance from this era.
Long, hot summer days, cooled by late afternoon breezes, chilly, wet winters and decomposed granite and shale combine to provide the perfect terroir for Andreas’ award-winning wines. Something to serve at your wedding!
