THE
WHALEHAVEN
HISTORY

OUR STORY

Our winery is situated on the Whale Coast, one of the most beautiful sections of coastal land in South Africa. In 1995, the history of Whalehaven began. Whalehaven is the third oldest wine estate in the Hemel-en-Aarde, after Hamilton Russell and Bouchard Finlayson. We have a strong reputation for crafting a classic range of wine largely made from French single varieties, particularly a world-class Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Our iconic logo echoes the philosophy of the winery to carefully nurture our wines in barrel, until the perfect time for them to be released. The wines honour the Southern Right Whale and their breeding habits that are celebrated across the Hermanus region from the beginning of July annually.

WHALEHAVEN ACTIVITIES

TASTING
EXPERIENCES

Visiting the place a wine is made gives visitors a unique glimpse into what makes that wine unique. Our coastal origin wines deliver a signature elegance with soft tannin structure and clean, precise flavours. The white wines exhibit beautiful minerality and our red wines offer clarity of fruit that are expressive, complex and balanced with velvety tannins. This complexity is drawn from the terroir of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley we call home and tempered by the cool sea winds that blow in from Walker Bay.
