The founding of Graff Diamonds in 1960 by Laurence Graff marked the start of an astonishing journey spanning over five decades. Throughout its rich history, Graff is said to have handled more diamonds of notable rarity and beauty than any other jeweller, and to this day continues to inspire and excite the world’s most discerning clientèle. An avid collector of modern and contemporary art, a world leader within the diamond industry and an equally devoted philanthropist, Laurence Graff opened the doors to Delaire Graff Estate in 2009. Having transformed the Estate into an extraordinary luxury destination – The Jewel of the Cape Winelands – nestled in the heart of South Africa’s Stellenbosch Valley. The combination of Maritime and mountain is a very unique terroir, and here in Stellenbosch it creates our award-winning Delaire Graff wines. A cooling Atlantic sea breeze washes over our steeply sloping vineyards giving us a rich intensity of fruit. Delaire Graff wines rank among the most prestigious in the Southern Hemisphere. Our unique terroir, on the crest of the panoramic Helshoogte Mountain Pass, is something our ambitious winemaker explores harvest after harvest. A long, slow ripening season ensures world-class clarets and red wines big in structure with soft tannins and elegance. Our white wines capture the freshness of the harvest, while irresistible rosé and a sparkling Brut completes an elegantly balanced portfolio. We are proud to have achieved First Growth status in South Africa – reward for creating our country’s most desirable wines on first pressing.
