Belfield Boutique Elgin Winery

Belfield is a family owned and run wine estate situated in the heart of the beautiful Elgin valley. The soil is beautifully suited to red wines – well drained and rich in iron, and faces north, creating a pocket of land that produces elegant cooler climate red wines. The Elgin Valley has become an exciting destination for wine enthusiasts and many winemakers from other wine areas have planted their flags in this up and coming region, as they recognise the potential of this area in becoming a premier wine producing area in the Cape. All wines produced from Belfield vineyards are truly hand crafted and are made from the four varietals planted on the Estate; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Shiraz.

Mike and Mel welcome you to experience Belfield wines in our tasting room, where you will not only enjoy our wine, but also the panoramic view across the vineyards to the Groenberg Mountains.
