From the very beginning, Springfontein was also meant to be a place where we could meet and exchange ideas, where people could come together who share a common understanding of impartiality and tolerance, eagerness to learn reliability, clarity of thought and consistency of action.
Once again, Springfontein’s wines are meant to serve as mediators, stimulating the exchange of ideas and socializing, but also providing enough material to get into conversation with each other, between guests and visitors, or with those who work with and on our tiny secluded spot of mother Earth.
That’s why hospitality is written in capital letters on Springfontein.
We want to create space to explore the estate on site, to learn more about Springfontein’s people and wines, whether on foot, by minibus or on the African Queen of Springfontein from the Klein River. We want to invite you to taste what our cellar has to offer, but also what the cuisine of the marshlands, shaped by the tides of the adjacent ocean, can provide. We want to offer a shelter and a refuge to allow our guests to indulge in our seclusion’s tranquillity.
Former strangers should become friends. Everyone joining us with good intentions, should feel welcome and in best hands – regardless of his or of her origin.
Ulumbaza Wine Bar(n)
“Ulumbaza” means “House of Joy”, and this is the farm’s more than 200-year-old thatched stable, where today we serve not only the wines of the same name, but all available ones from Springfontein.
Come and experience our new fine dining concept, showcasing Springfontein wines paired with one-of-a-kind culinary highlights of Chef Edwin Vinke and his son Tom, from the acclaimed 2 Michelin Dutch restaurant, De Kromme Watergang.
For guests wishing a fully immersing and authentic Springfontein experience, overnight accommodation is provided on the estate.
Springfontein Cottages and River Lodge offers the tranquillity of an old-style working farm, and the peace on the banks of the Klein River far from the hustle and bustle of the madding crowd.
Enjoy a trip on the AQS- African Queen of Springfontein boat, on the Klein River which crosses the farm.
