Unique Wedding Venue
Venturing inland from Cape Town, you will find yourself in the picturesque surrounds of the Cape Winelands. Known for its sweeping mountain views, unsurpassed wine-producers and top-notch culinary experiences, it forms the perfect backdrop for a beautiful wedding.
In the heart of this scenic area, 11 km from the town of Stellenbosch, lies 401 Rozendal – a wine farm with an undeniable country allure. The Joubert family has been farming here since the early 1900s with a deep respect for the land’s cultivation at the centre of their legacy. Restoration to the old farm shed revealed a beautiful hidden aesthetic with old worldly charm. Keeping parts of the shed’s original architecture intact helped to conserve its historic heritage and today the space functions as a modern-day wedding and event venue. It is nestled amongst the Stellenbosch mountain ranges and colourful vineyards creating a striking setting for your “never-to-be-forgotten” wedding.
The building’s style is warm and inviting, capturing the essence of country living. The Cellar Dining room can comfortably seat up to 130 guests. The marriage between the historic remains of the original building and its clean, modern additions results in a venue that lends itself to many different wedding themes or décor styles and gives couples a chance to transform the space with their own creative vision.
Besides the reception area and outdoor veranda/garden used as a lovely area for pre-drinks, the venue also offers an indoor chapel, a cosy lounge with a fireplace, dance space and a stylish bar.
Various inclusions come standard from on-the-day coordination to tables and chairs. They also work closely with a number of industry suppliers that share the same passion and attention-to-detail for their craft to ensure that the wedding of your dreams is a seamless and stress-free event. For bigger functions, a Bedouin tent is added to the veranda to seat 160 to 180 guests. The lawn area can accommodate even bigger gatherings with a free-standing Bedouin or Marquee tent that can be hired additionally with the assistance of the Venue Manager.
