The farm is situated on the east-facing slopes of Paarl Mountain, providing a cooler climate as well as spectacular views of the Berg River Valley and surrounding areas.

Originally settled by a blacksmith, Johann Jost Gunterlock, in 1747, it has been run as a working farm since shortly after this, being bought by Gideon Jacobus Retief in 1873. Today, a fifth generation of Retiefs still live on the farm, producing two ranges of wine – Retief and Stubborn Man – under the Pearl Mountain label.

The Venue @ Pearl Mountain builds on this proud heritage. With striking views, delicious food and warm atmosphere, The Venue can comfortably cater for up to 120 dinner guests (with a dance floor). All catering is done in-house by the famous Blacksmith's Kitchen team and packages include a variety of menu options. The Venue @ Pearl Mountain is the perfect location for a conference, function or dream wedding.

  • Still walking in the joy of the wedding we had @ Pearl Mountain - Just beautiful (& guests commented very positively)
