Guardian Peak is one of the new generation of South African wineries producing wines that combine traditional body and structure with ‘New World’ exuberance. It is owned by Jean Engelbrecht of Rust en Vrede, and as you would expect with this larger-than-life character, the wines are strong, positive examples of their varietals and location. The aim is to introduce more people to the fascinating lifestyle and culture of wine.
With the opening of the Guardian Peak Restaurant, fine wine, superb food and magnificent panoramic views are assured on any visit to the winery. Jean Engelbrecht’s philosophy for Guardian Peak, both the wine and restaurant is very much focused on terroir and the relationship between the land, the wine and the food of the region.
