The villa is stunning, very comfortable and spotless clean, it had all the necessary amenities we needed. The views are breathtaking and the air is so fresh. We felt very at ease and secure even if it was quite far up on the mountain as they had 24/7 security patrol. The hospitality manager Willem was so kind and welcoming. He has been very helpful, very responsive to our requests.
The house is absolutely stunning. It has beautiful, spacious bedrooms - all with a good view. The fire place is great, warms up the living room and dining room. Braai facilities both indoor and outdoor. Host was lovely and accommodating. Loved every second.
Taaibosch has an ultimate goal to craft wines that truly reflect their origin. Additionally, they hold deep respect for nature and its preservation. Therefore, their team is dedicated to restoring the indigenous flora of this estate, aligning it with the natural environment and ensuring a harmonious balance between agriculture and the ecosystem.
Embracing a vision of minimal intervention, they have adopted stringent organic principles for the winemaking process at Taaibosch. Organic farming is more than a practice; it's a culture, a disciplined approach to their work, and a way of life. By adhering to these principles, they strive to uphold the integrity of their wines, offering patrons a natural and organic winemaking experience. Due to these practices, they have been awarded a certification by Carbon Heroes upholding the standard for maintaining a balance between the natural environment and agriculture.
Following the redevelopment of the Taaibosch property, a meticulous regimen was implemented to eradicate all non-native vegetation from the estate and replace it with indigenous flora native to the Cape. The Taaibosch property's surface area is characterized by 55% natural flora and 45% dedicated to vineyard plantings and structures.
