Along with hosting wonderful events for charities and establishing South Africa’s first completely waste-free monthly market set right here in the KZN Midlands, did you know that our neighbours Highgate Wine Estate are only one of three certified wine farms in the province as well as the first to certify Chardonnay in KZN?
What started as a small vegetable farm 22 years ago, owners Rudi and Cindy Kassier have transformed the property into a thriving wine estate.
Open Wednesday to Sunday between 9am and 4pm each day, you can experience wine tasting in their beautiful cellar, a unique wine etiquette workshop and a cellar and vineyard tour. Highgate also regularly hosts private events and parties, contact them today to arrange a viewing and start planning a party. The Highgate team are knowledgeable and proud of their wines and are always ready to set you up for a good time.
The team includes;
- Rudi and Cindy Kassier – proprietors of Highgate Wine Estate and Piggly Wiggly
- Cathryn Kassier, daughter of Rudi and Cindy – responsible for marketing and Highgate’s pioneering events and markets.
- Tom Herselman, fiancé to Cathryn and head of sales and experiences
- Thornton Pillay – wine maker extraordinaire (read more about Thornton and his expert wine-making skills here)
