A Unique Fort-Styled Venue
This fort-styled cellar is surrounded by a beautiful lawn and vineyards and serves as a charming venue for a garden ceremony during the warmer months. Dating back to 1908 the Houmoed Cellar is the oldest building on the estate and serves as a wedding chapel. Originally built as a wine cellar, Dr Simon Uys removed the concrete fermenting tanks in 1967.
In 2013 careful renovations took place to transform the old building into an elegant wedding chapel, without losing its old-world character. Today the deep red stains on the walls bear silent testimony to the first red wine produced on the estate more than a century ago. At Fort Simon, their wines are tailored in a new-world style to please the connoisseur’s palate. With dedication, a meticulous approach and a passion for perfection, their hand-crafted wines have received numerous awards and accolades since the year 1998.
