Midway between Cape Town and the winelands region lies the semi-rural suburb of Joostenbergvlakte. Technically, Joostenbergvlakte falls under the Muldersvlei district of Stellenbosch, one of the Cape’s largest wine producing areas.
The history of Joostenbergvlakte dates back several centuries when a Swedish settler, Matthys Michaels, was granted the farmland in 1694. His original homestead was altered many times by later owners until a stone structure was built in Cape Dutch-style architecture in 1756. This house still stands, lovingly restored by the current occupants.
Apart from the original farm, Joostenbergvlakte consists of many smallholdings that are used for farming, agriculture and luxury wedding venues out in the country. The area is conveniently located alongside the main north-south highway, between 3 individual wine regions and overlooked by several mountain ranges.
