Our Members

We invite you to come and explore the BHRC and enjoy a variety of activities that cater for families, nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts as well as food and wine connoisseurs.  When you visit and support our member farms and renowned wine estates, you support conservation.

The Bottelary Hills Renosterveld Conservancy serves as an example of a successful landowner-driven conservation area. We are grateful to our member farms that commit to implementing environmentally sustainable farming practices, fire management and alien eradication, with the conservation and protection of the Renosterveld a major priority. It is a special place with huge eco-tourism potential.

The first grape varieties were planted on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills during the early 1700’s. The unique terroir of the area is ideally suited to the production of superior quality wine grapes. Today numerous internationally renowned wine estates lie amongst these hills.

The BHRC is easily accessible to day and weekend visitors and offers a variety of activities that cater for families, nature lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, wine and food connoisseurs as well as those looking to escape the hussle and bussle of city life. Choose between a wide range of accommodation, from self-catering, B&Bs, to boutique and luxury hotels. The area also offers unique indoor and outdoor locations for unforgettable functions. The tranquil surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for a wellness weekend or a relaxing game of golf at one of the world class golf courses around Stellenbosch. The ever-evolving network of MTB trails remains a key attraction. Although the MTB trails are single-use, many of the member farms have hiking trails on their properties.
