Welcome to Journey's End Brands
In 1995, the Gabb family purchased our beautiful South African vineyard, nestled between the Schapenberg Hills and False Bay. 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.
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.
Home to Journey’s End, Mount Rozier, Identity and Gabb Family Vineyards, we produce premium, easy drinking wines with a minimal interference approach, allowing nature to run its course.
In 1995 the Gabb family (originally from Shropshire, UK) took control of this picturesque wine farm surrounded by 20 ha of gorgeous vineyards. They have invested heavily in both the vineyards and the winery since then – with the estate growing to 120ha by July 2011.
The initial Journey’s End investment was made by Roger Gabb, who, at that time, was Founder and Managing Director of Western Wines. Following the sale of Western Wines to Constellation brands in 2006, the family turned their focus to their estate, Journey’s End. Upon taking the helm in 2007, Roger’s son Rollo has since invested further into the estate through vineyard purchases and infrastructure.
