Doran Vineyards have been looking after supporter groups since 2016. As Edwin started Rugby Travel Twickenham in 1974, we have experience in looking after rugby people. This photo shows Leinster supporters on their recent visit to our Clubhouse, whose walls are adorned with brilliant sporting memorabilia.

What you get

  • Professional wine tastings
  • Brilliant South African braais with silver service
  • Unique relaxing atmosphere on our stoep and lawn
  • We take our guests out into the vineyards to speak about viniculture (grape growing etc) before talking about viniculture (winemaking) in the cellar.
  • Wine ordering delivered to your home at local Ireland and UK prices.

Doran Vineyards is the family destination, ideal to spend your day in a typical South African manner.

Enjoy uninterrupted mountain, lake and vineyard views from the stoep. Or, depending on the size of your group, lounge at the pool, visit the real vineyards with our highly experienced viticulturist / GM, Ernie Manuel, and join a private wine tasting in ‘The Clubhouse’ featuring memorabilia from international sporting legends.

Doran Vineyards can comfortably cater for groups of up to 50 people.

For those that want to linger a little longer, and live on a farm, we can accommodate up to 14 people in 3 separate homes on our land, as well as 6 people in our deluxe flat in Cape Town’s Waterfront.

Doran Vineyards owner, Edwin Doran, has played rugby since he was 7, and has coached and refereed around the world, collecting memorabilia for the farm’s unique event location and tasting room called ‘The Clubhouse‘. These include British Lions, Cricket and Rugby World Cups, Springboks, England, Ireland, Western Province, Leinster, Blue Bulls, Keith Wood as well as football superstars as David Beckham, Wayne Rooney, Celtic, Man U and many other sports and sporting legends.

Doran Vineyards is located in the Voorpaardeberg wine terroir, ideally positioned to visit the many Paarl, Wellington, and Riebeek Kasteel restaurants, wine estates, hiking trails and art galleries, at just 1 hour’s drive from the Cape Town Stadium
