About Post House

The property covers a total of 71 hectares of which 38 hectares falls under vineyard. Situated 7km from the False Bay coast between Somerset West and Stellenbosch, a breach in the coastal ridge channels the south and south west winds towards the vineyards and these being generally cool breezes helps moderate the summer temperatures.

The site, which was originally a mix of tobacco and bush wines up until the early 80’s was systematically planted to vineyard, each vineyard was selected to what was considered the best cultivar match for the terroir.

The total planned vineyard will be 45 hectares. As of 2009 the vineyard comprises of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Pinotage, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and a sprinkle of Viognier.
