Welcome to Delaire Graff Estate

Delaire Graff

Smoky, smoky… I detect gooseberry, aromas of cut grass, hints of citrusy tropical fruit. The way people talk about wine is almost absurd. It makes poets of us all.

Our Favourite African Holiday Drinks

Drinks on Safari

What’s Your Holiday Poison? What are sundowners without G&Ts? An early morning in the bush without coffee? A boat cruise down the Chobe or a catamaran ride in Mauritius without cocktails?
