7. Delaire Graff, South Africa
Located between Franschhoek and Stellenbosch, Delaire Graff has one of the finest settings in the Cape Winelands. At its inception, the founders of Delaire set out with the intention of making the estate South Africa’s most desirable art, hospitality, and wine destination. Since then it has achieved this and more, and is famous today for its working vineyard, its unparalleled lodge accommodation, and its lush gardens peppered with original artworks from the personal collection of Laurence Graff, who is frequently named one of the world’s top art collectors. A visit here won’t pigeonhole your choices, as you can weave between being a satisfied gourmand, a contented art-aficionado, a spirited sommelier, and an inspired landscaper all during one stay.
