Welcome to Journey's End Brands
In 1995, the Gabb family purchased our beautiful South African vineyard in the Stellenbosch winelands. Since then, we, have continued to be wholly committed to sustainably and ethically producing excellent wines for all occasions, across Journey’s End Vineyards, Mount Rozier, Identity Wines and Gabb Family Vineyards.
Dynamic winemakers Leon Esterhuizen and Mike Dawson use progressive methods both in the cellar and in the vineyards. These include a minimal intervention philosophy, carbonic maceration, and fermentation and ageing in amphorae and concrete eggs, adding a complex layer to classically elegant wines.
Home to Journey’s End, Mount Rozier, Identity and Gabb Family Vineyards, we produce premium, easy drinking wines for every occasion. while allowing nature to run its course.
In 1995 the Gabb family, originally from Shropshire, UK, fell in love with this picturesque wine farm surrounded by 20 ha of gorgeous vineyards.
We are incredibly lucky to be nestled amongst the Schapenberg hills, beneath which lay 350 million year old decomposed granite soils. This creates one of the most prestigious terroirs in South Africa, and is where our vines are planted. As well as fantastic views, our vineyards benefit from the cooling and cleansing south-easterly wind, known locally as the ‘Cape Doctor’, which comes in from nearby False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.
The team has always been wholly committed to being environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. As well as being WEITA and IPW accredited, Journey’s End converted to solar power in 2014 and the farm became fully Fairtrade certified from April 2017.
In 2020 we were named Ethical Company of the Year by The Drinks Business Green Awards, in recognition of Journey’s End Foundation’s work, which, since it began, aims to provide 1,000,000 meals to our local community by the end of the year.
Early in 2021, we attained WWF Conservation Champion status, for our continued commitment to sustainable farming and conservation of native fauna and flora.
We believe in drinking well, while truly being a force for good.
Journey's End Winemaker, Mike Dawson
