Wine Estates in the Garden Route

Packwood is a beautiful country estate with unparalleled views ideally located just 20 kilometres from Plettenberg Bay and 25 from Knysna in the middle of the Garden Route and a historical part of the Knysna forest.

Their boutique wines were developed by Peter and Vicky Gent in 2006 working with specialist viticulturists from Cape Town. The vines are planted at the highest point of the farm 330 metres above sea level in a south easterley direction to optimise on air circulation. They chose cooler climate varieties – Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

During harvest time we carefully select the best quality grapes, everything is hand picked and delivered to our winemaker in Stellenbosch, Teddy Hall multi award winning and a member of the prestigious Cape Wine Makers Guild. One of the first wine makers to produce wine from this new growing area for South Africa.
