WESTERN CAPE – SOUTH AFRICA

In 1995 the Gabb family, originally from Shropshire, UK, fell in love with this picturesque wine farm surrounded by 20 ha of gorgeous vineyards and set up their beautiful winery ‘Journey’s end” in South Africa.

They are incredibly lucky to be nestled amongst the Schapenberg hills, beneath which lay 350 million year old decomposed granite soils. This creates one of the most prestigious terroirs in South Africa, and is where their vines are planted. As well as fantastic views, theur vineyards benefit from the cooling and cleansing south-easterly wind, known locally as the ‘Cape Doctor’, which comes in from nearby False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

The team has always been wholly committed to being environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. As well as being WEITA and IPW accredited, Journey’s End converted to solar power in 2014 and the farm became fully Fairtrade certified from April 2017.

In 2020 they received the Ethical Company award at The Drinks Business Green Awards, in recognition of Journey’s End Foundation’s work, which has provided over 1,000,000 meals to our local community. In 2021, they again received the Ethical Company award, as well as the Water Management.

Early in 2021, they attained WWF Conservation Champion status, for their continued commitment to sustainable farming and conservation of native fauna and flora.
