Goat Tower

A Cape Winelands Icon

Rising above the Goatshed restaurant stands our Goat Tower. Adored by children and adults alike, it has been home to our beloved furry mascots since 1981. 

The tale of our Goat Tower is a special one. In the early 80s, Charles set off on a trip to Portugal. Upon one of his producer visits, he spotted the original tower and was completely inspired. A few months later, the now iconic Goat Tower was built. Soon after, Charles’s young son Jason accidentally left the gate open to the paddock, and so the little group happily roamed among the vineyards, showing rare discernment by selecting some of the ripest berries from the vines – their adventures being the inspiration behind our Goats Do Roam range. The rest is history, and it comes as little surprise that we’ve selected our cheese makers, smile givers and beloved furry friends as our very own mascot.

Each year during September, we experience a very special time on the farm when our nanny goats welcome their kids into the world – and on occasion, we’ll bring them up to the Goat Tower so you can welcome them too!
