HOTEL HISTORY

Silvermist was founded in 1984 by Architect and Property Developer, Alan Gregory Louw. An inspired and driven young man, he discovered the hidden potential of the property when he came across an old Manor House in ruins. He took it upon himself to rebuild the ruin to its original footprint and the Louw Family of four lived in what is now SILVERMIST HOTEL until 1998. After which the development of Silvermist Estate commenced. Silvermist  proudly welcomed its first overnight Guest in 1999. The Estate is constantly being developed in tune with the natural land and rhythm of the earth.

VINEYARDS

Gregory Brink Louw has worked tirelessly to over the last 18 years to create Silvermist Organic Wine Farm. His ethos of life has slipped into his wine to create what is now the only organic wine farm in Constantia. Greg believes that everything is a product of its environment. This is why when you walk around the Estate, you will see the it’s not just the vines that are grown naturally and in tune with the Earth. The invasive tree’s have been chopped down by hand and reused in the buildings, wooden decking and featured Art in the Hotel. The compost is made from organic waste and the vines are growing without the need for irrigation or reliance upon pesticides, herbicides and chemicals. What is produced is the product of love, passion and an unmoving care for both the natural environment and its people.
