The 100ha family-owned Cavalli Estate opened its doors to the public in 2014 as a lifestyle destination that combines food, wine and art. Italian for horses, Cavalli is also home to a world-class equestrian centre; a fine-dining restaurant; gallery of contemporary art; upmarket boutique; and, collection of rare sporting memorabilia. According to winemaker Craig Barnard, the combination of good light intensity and warmth is balanced by the cool afternoon breezes off False Bay to produce ideal conditions for quality grapes. Its focus is on Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Verdelho.
