Stellenzicht's new eco-friendly pod of wine tasting pleasure!

Stellenzicht wine tasting pod in Stellenbosch
The pod and outdoor deck is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine and pizza made with locally sourced ingredients.

Landmark Stellenbosch winery Stellenzicht has unveiled an innovative eco-pod offering visitors an environmentally-friendly wine tasting experience immersed in natural surroundings of fynbos wilderness at the foot of the towering peaks of the Helderberg mountains.

The dragonfly on the labels represents balance and sustainability.

The historic farm has been transformed over the past four years since its sale to renowned German wine collector Baron Hans von Staff-Reitzenstein and they have re-launched an entire portfolio of wines in 2021. With a focus on sustainability at the heart of the estate’s revival, vineyards have been replanted, alien vegetation removed, and indigenous flora and fauna gradually re-established.

"Stellenzicht is on an ongoing journey of sustainability and it was important to us that our brand home reflects our values." Stellenzicht Sales and Marketing Manager - Nina Barkhuizen. The pod is erected with no need for excavations and none of the environmental impact of conventional construction.

The new eco-pod is in keeping with Stellenzicht’s aim to tread lightly on the earth – it has no concrete foundation and sits on “crows’ feet” with little impact on its surrounds.

Indoors, large windows allow natural light and the spectacular views inside, with fire-side seating for winter. The tree-shaded deck offers endless views across the restored fynbos wilderness with its “dancing” dragonflies, and into the Stellenbosch and Helderberg mountains.
