On the slopes of Helshoogte beneath the powerhouse of the Groot Drakenstein Mountains lies a small winery. With about 5acres under vines, Camberley produces no more than 1000 cases of wine neatly packaged in 500ml and 750ml bottles. The passion at Camberley shines through the wine and winery. Surrounding the elegant Victorian home are neat rows of vines and trim gardens flush with white roses. There is an artistic precision in the seemingly casual arrangement of flowers that enhances the majestic setting.
Wine tasting at Camberley is an animated conversation among friends. The cellar is in fact part of the Nel’s home and visitors are likely to enter the tasting lounge through the kitchen.
The one bedroom cottage on Camberley Wine Farm has a private entrance and garden with a plunge pool. The cottage has a lounge/dinning room with kitchen and fireplace. The bathroom is en-suite and has both a bath and shower. The facility is serviced daily. With the cottage as their base, visitors can explore the farm – taking in the beautiful mountain scenery. Mountain bikes are welcome for the more adventurous. Camberley is a mere eight minute drive from Stellenbosch and fifteen minutes from Franschhoek – it is the ideal base from which to explore this lovely area.
