The Estate

Situated in a tranquil valley under the Klein Drakenstein mountains, Brookdale is surrounded by a world rich with life and beauty.

The Seasons at Brookdale.

​Brookdale extends over 80 hectares with 27 planted to vine and the remainder left to revert to its natural habitat. Since the Rudd family began their stewardship of Brookdale, all alien vegetation has been cleared, valleys have been re-planted with 3600 indigenous trees and mountain slopes re-seeded with wild Cape fynbos and flowers. Bird and animal life are as rich and abundant. Every season brings different moods, different hues and different lives.
