This family owned and managed wine estate, situated in the spectacular Simonsberg Mountain Range, boasts some of the highest elevations in Stellenbosch which makes it an ideal area for premium quality wine grape production. The farm is situated about 3km from Banhoek Lodge and while the walk to Thelema Mountain Vineyards will involve some uphill climbs, the experience is more than worth the effort not only for the scenery but also for the reward of a complimentary wine tasting on arrival. We recommend turning right as you exit Banhoek Lodge’s gate and walking along the country road that meanders through the vineyards as an alternative to the busy Helshoogte Road route. This route is 400m longer but is a far quieter and more pleasant route on foot. Don’t forget to try the Cabernet Sauvignon, the farm’s flagship wine.
