There is no single activity which results in a great wine, but rather a combination of activities which add up to something great and unique.
One of these steps is in essence a conscious step back by interfering as little as possible in the creation of the wine making process and incorporating traditional wine making methods. This includes natural yeast fermentation, basket pressing and no fining or filtering.
Hermann Gebers bought the farm in 1981 in the picturesque area between the towns of Somerset West and Stellenbosch. Situated on a ridge, the winery offers panoramic views of Cape Point, False Bay and the surrounding Helderberg Mountains.
As the Homestead had originally operated as the Helderberg Post Office in the early 1900s, it was a logical step to associate the wine with its postal origin. The winery was thus named Post House.
A gorgeous location with picturesque views of vineyards, the Helderberg mountain and False Bay exudes charm in a rustic country setting. This spacious venue offers an old world feel with rustic doors, stained glass windows, a high ceiling and chandeliers. The vintage interiors are authentic, comfortable and picturesque. We can accommodate up to 150 guests, yet is intimate enough for smaller occasions.
