Tasting Room

The promise of Rainbow’s End is in its fertility and climate. Situated on high-lying slopes, rising to 540m above sea level, the estate backs on to the Jonkershoek Mountain and overlooks the prized and productive Banghoek basin, which is encircled by mountains.

Experts have affirmed the potential of the land to produce wines that can compete internationally. Promise implies the commitment and care to make it all come true. Working with the soil, the rain and the sunshine, Jacques and his family planted and nurtured 22 hectares of vineyards. The order of the trellised rows of vines takes its cue from the lie of the land and the picture is of patterns of green in harmony with the slopes and curves of the landscape.
