Established in 1912, Bartinney has been in the Jordaan family since 1953. Now Rose and Michael Jordaan tend to the 28-hectare farm, with a vision to create excellent wines and reawaken the charm of the historic land. Creating excellence in wine has not been a singular pursuit. Our belief is that every aspect must work in harmony: agriculture with nature, people with animals, sustainability with excellence. The old vines are planted to a height of 550m above sea level and with slopes as steep as 45 degrees, creating wines that have exceptional expression and character. Small pockets of low yielding, hand-tended Chardonnay vineyards offer up perfect fruit on the cooler elevated slopes. On the slightly lower foothills of the Botmaskop mountains the Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are tended to.
The winged figure depicted on each bottle is called ‘Elevage’ and symbolises the French art of the selective maturing and ascension of a wine to its ultimate heights, unfurling its most noble traits. This idea is embodied in the team work, small-lot artisanal craft and gentle methods, relied upon to create excellence year-on-year.
The beautifully restored self-catering vineyard guesthouses are ideal for a restful Wineland getaway. Luxurious and authentic, they boast contemporary, eclectic farmhouse charm and classic Cape features. We aim to make every stay with us memorable, providing a welcoming, personalised service and a homely atmosphere. Whether you would like a stay for one – six people, or would like to rent all of the guest houses together, we’ve got an option for you.
The estate is just 15 minutes from the heart of Stellenbosch and 30 minutes from Franschhoek. Head to the tasting shed on the estate to enjoy the Bartinney wines and unrivalled views, walk amongst the vines, hike through the estate’s winding trails.
Activities: Wine Tasting, Gin Tasting & Bartinney Wine & Fynbos Experience. To accompany the wine experience, we have a selection of locally sourced snacks, including cheese and charcuterie platters and delicious biltong.
