Rivendell was originally established in 1985 by a local family and soon became recognised for its gardens, restaurant and premium wines. The estate has gone through a redevelopment phase and is now again under family management and ownership by the Gruenthal family.
The unique, rustic, wooden cellar door provides visitors the opportunity to sample Rivendell’s finely nurtured and crafted wines. The Rivendell cabernet vineyards were planted in 1987 and today produce premium dry grown grapes, perfected over time.
Situated adjacent to the cellar door, the Rivendell Restaurant offers a fresh and flavoursome culinary experience and is nestled within the tranquil old world English gardens. The Rivendell Restaurant has been a popular attraction for both locals and tourists to the region for over 30 years.
Within the estate are a number of individually owned holiday villas that are available for rent to enjoy an extended stay. The villas also provide an excellent opportunity to make your wedding or event at the estate. A modern tennis court is available for use for those staying at the villas.
The resident caretaker, Guy Woods, is in charge of maintaining the property. Since his appointment the gardens and estate have continued to thrive and improve. The estate provides attractive grounds for visitors and offer excellent event and wedding venues.
