TopVendor Member & Top Wine Farm Wedding Venue Participant 2017
Lifelong memories are made here in our vineyards. Off the beaten track, tranquil and serene – that’s Vondeling!
Vondeling lies on the slopes of the un-spoilt and undiscovered Paardeberg Mountain, approximately forty five minutes’ drive from Cape Town. The farm was originally granted to Swedish immigrant, Olaf Bergh in 1704. In 2012, one of the old buildings on the farm was upgraded to accommodate the Vondeling wine tasting center and function venue and a thatched roof chapel was built and completed in 2013.
Apart from being the official tasting room of Vondeling Wines, the venue is also available for the hosting of private events and weddings. We can accommodate up to 100 people – depending on the function type.
Complete with thatch roof, high steeple, stained glass windows and church bells, St Clement’s will make a wedding in the winelands unforgettable. The chapel is conveniently situated alongside the function venue and surrounded by rolling lawns, a charming garden, vineyards and spectacular views of the Paardeberg and surrounding countryside.
The Cape Dutch farm house, now known as Foundling House was built in 1740 and was immaculately restored by the current owners in 2005. Foundling House comprises seven en suite bedrooms (sleeping 14 people) which are luxuriously appointed and extremely comfortable, and has Wi-Fi. Other areas in the house include a fully equipped kitchen, and a dining and sitting room with a cosy fireplace. The recreation room houses a snooker table and a table tennis table, and has satellite TV. Outside entertainment – 20m swimming pool, covered braai lapa area, croquet- and tennis courts.
