The name 'Zevenwacht' is derived from Dutch meaning 'Seven Expectations' Situated on the Stellenbosch Wine Route and owned and managed by the Johnson family. Two prime farming locations supply the Zevenwacht winery. The home vineyards on Zevenwacht's 450 hectare maritime property, and the farm Zevenrivieren at the crest of the Helshoogte Pass. Cellarmaster Jacques Viljoen combines tradition with modern science and the principals of environmental care with passion and creativity to produce wines that are pure, natural and made to be enjoyed. The slopes of Zevenwacht not only produce wines, but also mark the site of one of the Cape's most remarkable enterprises - The Tin Mines which operated here in the early 1900's. The shafts and machinery from that venture remain on Zevenwacht bearing eloquent testimony to this impressive undertaking. A white blend and a red blend are made from vineyards on this site.
