The Stellenbosch wine route offers a myriad of luxurious experiences for both new and seasoned travellers. The 245-year old farm has a history that is just a rich and famous as its exclusive wines.
From 1771 till 1902, Warwick was known as the farm ‘De Goede Sukses’. After the Anglo Boer war ended in 1902, Colonel William Alexander Gordon, Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment bought the historic farm. He renamed it ‘Warwick’ as a tribute to his regiment.
