Polka Hills Wine Estate
Wonderfully set on the southern slope of Kanonkop, exposed to the cooling sea breezes from False Bay to the South and the Atlantic to the West, this wine estate has enviable terroir, position and views.
The 38ha estate is currently planted to approximately 28ha of wine grapes, all of which are on trellis and under drip irrigation. With soils ranging from Clovelly on the upper reaches to Fernwood in the lower areas, the farm operates on a "high quality, low volume" farming method which ensures good fruit and vine health from year to year. A small experimental block of lavender provides a vibrant splash of colour as well as an alternate source of revenue.
The 499m2manor house, consisting of 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge, dining room and a private air conditioned wine cellar, is set in mature garden with large established trees. From the front of the home one is spoilt with breathtaking views across the Stellenbosch winelands and surrounding mountain ranges. A well designed pool and entertainment area promotes the South African lifestyle.
Three cottages, two of which have 2 bedrooms, with the third having a single bedroom, are well placed between the cellar and homestead. The cottages could be utilised as rental units or simply extra guest accommodation.
The 1250m2 wine cellar with a capacity of 250 tonnes was designed and built in 1997. The cellar complex incorporates an intimate tasting lounge, office space, viewing deck, fully equipped 250 ton production services and temperature controlled barrel and bottle maturation facilities.
A 72000m3 water allocation from the Theewaterkloof Irrigation scheme as well as a farm dam provide ample irrigation water and a municipal connection supplies the potable water.
