Purchased in 1995 by the Gabb family, Journey’s End is nestled among the Schapenberg hills in the Stellenbosch winelands and has always been wholly committed to sustainably and ethically producing excellent wines for all occasions.
Our vines are grown on 350 million-year-old decomposed granite soils, creating one of the most prestigious terroirs in South Africa. As well as fantastic views, the vineyards also 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.
Dynamic winemakers Leon Esterhuizen and Mike Dawson use progressive methods both in the cellar and in the vineyards. These include a minimal intervention philosophy, carbonic maceration, and fermentation and ageing in amphorae and concrete eggs, adding a complex layer to classically elegant wines.
In 2020 and 2021 we were named Ethical Company of the Year by The Drinks Business Green Awards, in recognition for the Journey’s End Foundation’s work which, since its launch in August 2020, has provided over 2,000,000 meals to those in need in our local community. In 2021 we attained WWF Conservation Champion status for our ongoing commitment to sustainable farming and conservation of native fauna and flora, and became founding members of the Sustainable Wine Roundtable. In 2022 we were named Best Producer at the inaugural SA Wine Awards in London and the Best Sustainable Wine Producer in the Marie Claire UK Sustainability Awards.
We believe in drinking well and growing forward, while truly being a force for good.
