The Restaurant

 VUUR is an exclusive use fire cooking experience situated in the Cape Winelands on Remhoogte Wine Estate. We converted an old stable into a small intimate show cooking venue situated in a wildlife camp on the wine estate.

Remhoogte Wine Estate

Remhoogte is a family winery with vineyards on the foothills of the Simonsberg mountain, Stellenbosch. The wines are a product of ancient soils, steep slopes and winds off the cold Atlantic Ocean. They tell the story of the vineyards, our heritage and passion for winemaking and preserving the land for future generations. The aim is to bring joy to all who experience the wines and to make them feel a part of the Remhoogte family. 

They believe that their wines are made in the vineyards. The estate's unique situation in Stellenbosch on the Southern tip of Africa provides the ideal area for the production of quality wines.

The interplay between the diverse soils, steep slopes and carefully selected varietals provide the grapes with the perfect home for making their  complex, storied wines. 

Vines have been grown on the estate since 1812. Initially the vineyards were all planted in the valleys and lower slopes on the property and it wasn't until the mid 1990's that they began uprooting the lower vineyards and planting slopes higher on the property, in search of better drained and cooler sites.

 

All Varieties have been carefully paired to the site on which they are planted. The vineyards vary in age from just planted to 36 years old. There are 8 varieties of grapes planted on the property: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Syrah, Merlot, Pinotage,  Chenin Blanc, Riesling.

The family's love of nature and wildlife led to the creation of a wildlife camp in a lower corridor of the farm. The wildlife camp is home to nyala, springbok (the national animal of South Africa), wildebeest and zebra. These can be viewed from the interior and exterior tables of VUUR.
