Journey's End Vineyards

The award-winning winery in the Somerset West area, Journey’s End Vineyards, was taken over by the Gabb Family in 1996 with a focus on ethically and sustainably producing excellent wines for all occasions.

As the most southerly farm in the wider Stellenbosch wine region, Journey’s End makes use of the unique micro-climate created by the mountains, sea and ‘Cape Doctor’ wind.

Journeys End actively conserves critically endangered Swartland Shale Renosterveld and vulnerable Boland Granite Fynbos. Where vineyards have been uprooted, they plan to restore these areas by sourcing indigenous plant species.

The vineyard was the second in South Africa to convert to solar power. It is certified by Fairtrade, Integrated Production of Wine (IPW) and the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association (WIETA). In 2020, Journey’s End won the ‘Ethical company of the year’ in the Drinks Business Green Awards, recognising the support given to the local community through the Journey’s End Foundation. Since September 2020, the foundation has funded and provided 213 867 meals to those in need via a network of soup kitchens.
