Highberry Vineyards is a stunning hidden gem nestled deeply in the Schapenberg foothills just outside Somerset West. The farm has recently completed its very own brand new boutique wedding venue which mimics a rustic countryside presence; but with high-end modern and sophisticated finishes.
After opening recently in 2019, it was already awarded the Best Venue Award in the Wine Farm category by Pink Book.

At this Somerset wedding venue, exclusivity and intimacy is the name of the game. The estate is 60 hectares in size, and is completely private with no other properties or roads nearby. Therefore the whole farm is exclusively yours on the day. It’s max capacity is 125 guests so that the occasion is more intimately driven.

In terms of ceremony locations, Highberry boasts four different options including an indoor option for poor weather. The other three options are set right amongst the farm’s breathtaking scenery.
The building has a 180 degree wrap-around deck, and is surrounded by diverse landscapes. These include horse paddocks, vineyards, mountains, dams and Renosterveld fynbos – a truly unbeatable setting.
Bridal Preparation and Wedding Venue Facilities
The estate allows their bride’s to make use of their exquisite Manor House on the day. It is completely surrounded by a spectacular manicured garden comprising of various herbs, roses and fruit trees – perfect for bridal photographs.
In addition, the facility includes a fully equipped kitchen, a licensed bar, as well as spacious laws on which a marquee could be erected or canapés and live music can be held.
Highberry’s strengths has been its everlasting commitment to biodiversity: 12 hectares has been returned to its original indigenous habitat from previously planted alien pine trees. This has taken over 5 years to accomplish, but the results are now evident as the legendary breath-taking Cape Floral Kingdom again comes to life, attracting birdlife and small wild animals alike, and ultimately allowing the natural flow of nature to thrive as intended. This unique and intense beauty is evident everywhere you look on the property.
