Delaire Graff Estate is located at the very top of the Helshoogte Pass, which weaves its way up a steep slope, and looks out over some of the most stunning landscape in the Cape Winelands. Vineyards and well-kept lawns cascade down mountain slopes, framed by lofty peaks blanketed in snow in the winter.
You’ve got a brief, you’re attempting to keep 50 million people happy, and you want to give something particularly special to a global, ultra-high-net-worth clientele. Who do you call?
