Deep within the heart of the Devon Valley, a mere stone’s throw away from Stellenbosch in the Western Cape, lies Brenaissance Wine & Stud Estate. A place of new beginnings, this serene & evergreen estate is an established wine & cattle farm that boasts modern farm accommodation, a breath-taking venue & chapel, a highly acclaimed family restaurant & a top quality Boran cattle stud.
Established in 2011, Brenaissance has earned a long-standing reputation for offering visitors, guests & bridal couples a truly memorable & exclusive Winelands experience. From premium wines & the finest local fare, to exclusive venue services & some of the Winelands’ most spectacular natural backdrops – this guest estate provides a tasting menu of the finer things in life.
Brenaissance is renowned for its range of accommodation options, boasting contemporary decor with subtle farm touches. What used to be our historic “dorpshuisies” have been restored & refurbished into 8 exquisite Vineyard Suites & 1 spacious Honeymoon Suite, featuring breath-taking views of the valley from the “stoep”. In the middle of a small plum orchard, you’ll find our 6 Orchard Suites – the old labourers’ cottages that have been restored & renovated to exude elegance & understated farm luxury. Ranging from studios & 1-bedroom suites to the more spacious family cottages, each cottage has its own cast iron wood burning fireplace, mini private deck & braai area – not to mention fully equipped kitchen to accommodate longer stays. Guests can also enjoy exclusive access to the Pool House & use of the pool, deck chairs & facilities.
