Spookfontein Wines | Hermanus

Spookfontein is a boutique wine estate in the Hemel and Aarde Valley – neighbouring the coastal town and whale watching capital of Hermanus. The name ‘Spook’ – Dutch for “ghost” – derives from the myth that one can discern a “spirit” within the swirls of the flowing spring. 

Built out of natural stone from the local surrounds and located at the foot of a mountain, you will find Spookfontein Restaurant and Winery, overlooking the picturesque Upper Hemel-en-Aarde valley. 

Wine lovers can sit in the adjacent restaurant overlooking breath taking scenery or stand at our tasting bar for a more interactive experience.

The curvy architecture opening to big views and interesting seating nooks offer whimsical spots to sit, enjoy our wine and embrace the vista.
