The traditional, eco-architecture inspired peach pip floor at the Estate, leads the way from the entrance to the store, passing magnificent artworks created by some of South Africa’s most influential artists along the way.
Visitors are greeted by a striking exterior; stone walls in natural tones echoing the spectacular landscape surrounding the Estate, positioned alongside a contemporary open grille punctuated by the distinctive Graff Icon motif.
Created by Graff Diamonds’ Monaco-based interior design team each detail draws influence from African and Cape Dutch styling, incorporating a rich colour palette and a luxurious array of fixtures and fittings.
A vaulted ceiling provides an airy yet luxurious feel to the 586 square foot interior with opulent showcases lining the walls of the store, boasting unique one-of- a-kind jewels, collection pieces and timepieces from Graff Luxury Watches.
Stitched leather and ebony desks provide the perfect place for an intimate viewing experience, where clients can appreciate at the fine craftsmanship of Graff Diamonds’ distinctive designs in finer detail.
Positioned next to the store lies Delaire Graff Estate’s state-of-the-art wine cellar, where visitors can marvel at row upon row of sturdy oak barrels, containing only the very finest vintages through a spectacular floor to ceiling glass panel.
The walkway continues to a stunning restaurant deck with panoramic views of the Helshoogte Mountain Pass which is noted for its high altitude vineyards, excellent soils and cooling sea breezes.
Delaire Graff Estate is one of South Africa’s finest vineyards and was acquired by Laurence Graff in 2003. A state of the art winery and restaurant opened in 2009 followed by its lodges and spa in May 2010.
The Estate is now considered to be one of South Africa’s leading luxury destinations, winning accolades for its wine, food, design and accommodation.
