Peter Falke Wines
Groenvlei farm, with its gabled Cape Dutch buildings which date back to the 18th century, is situated on the ‘golden mile’ of the Helderberg, one of the prime wine areas of Stellenbosch. Waves of magenta bougainvillea tumble down the buildings, while delicate scented roses and wild lavender grow alongside the carefully cultivated vineyards.
This is the home of Peter Falke Wines. Franz-Peter Falke and his wife Daniele Görtz have made the most of the old, with its white walls and formulaic building style and partnered an elegant Cape Dutch homestead with a cutting edge boutique winery. German precision meet French flair. The insides of the buildings are vibrant with colour. The contemporary wine tasting room and outdoor luxurious lounge make Peter Falke wines as one of the elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands with an unsurpassed mountain backdrop.
Our unique outdoor tasting lounge and beautiful gardens provide the perfect setting for relaxation and sundowners. Enjoy our selection of delectable cheeses and French salads from our new menu.

Winemaking at Peter Falke wines
The Peter Falke philosophy is to capture the essence of the terroir, to hand select the best grapes in the vineyard. Once in the cellar, natural and minimalist processes are practiced by the Peter Falke winemaking team comprised of Werner Schrenk and consultant winemaker Louis Nel. Louis is an award winning winemaker and a member of the prestigious Cape Winemakers Guild.
Two ranges of wine are brought to life at Groenvlei. The signature range, with its contemporary mirrored label, attracts the discerning wine connoisseur, while our PF range embodies relaxed, stylish sociability, with a light multifaceted character that plays on the senses.
