Our Story


Donkiesbaai on the West Coast of South Africa has been the vacation home to the Engelbrecht family for four generations.

Our West Coast is a place that invigorates one’s soul and one’s understanding and appreciation of the simple things in life. For many it is a harsh, desert-like, unknown frontier, but for those who have experienced its energy and unspoilt natural beauty, it becomes a life-enriching place to be.

Crayfish, harders and a cold glass of Steen (Chenin Blanc) is part of the history that is Donkiesbaai and with this wine I raise a glass with family and friends.
