Babylonstoren against an impressive backdrop
Babylonstoren lies between Stellenbosch and Paarl against the breathtaking backdrop of the Simonsberg Mountains. The historic winery was named after the hill "Babel", which is located directly next to the winery. Babylonstoren is one of the oldest wineries in South Africa. The history of the winery goes back to 1692 and many details remind of the long tradition of Babylonstoren. The Cape Dutch architecture of the buildings has been largely preserved and very carefully supplemented with ultra-modern accents. The wines are now produced in a state-of-the-art wine cellar designed by Gerard de Villiers, owner of the Kleinood winery and one of the most famous architects in his field!
Babylonstoren is an experience
The picturesque backdrop of Babylonstoren is wonderfully complemented by the winery´s large garden. This forms the heart of the winery. Besides fruit and vegetables, berries and native plants grow here. Each of the more than 300 plant species is edible or of medical value. The majestic garden invites guests to relax. In addition to the wonderful wines, olives are also grown here for the winery's own olive oil production. In addition, visitors can enjoy tea from their own cultivation in the "Tea Ceremony", taste homemade products in the "Bakery", eat in a relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant "Greenhouse" or visit the popular restaurant Babel to be pampered at the highest level. The range is rounded off by the Babylonstoren winery with a 5* boutique hotel and an unusual spa area.
