A rich family history and vast influence of inspirational individuals have sculpted Clairvaux to what it is today. The homestead is located amongst the Cape Winelands and more specifically the Robertson Wine Valley renowned for its world class wines. It is a magical place which inspires us to dream, believe and fly every single day.
In 2012 we renovated the old stables and barns into the working studios where Rialheim has been produced since then.
Now, for the very first time, we are opening our beautiful home for a limited period allowing you to experience Rialheim like never before and to indulge in country living at its finest.
Discover our history and heritage
Nestled in the heart of the Robertson Wine Valley, Clairvaux is a charming farm with a beautifully restored homestead that is enveloped with lush gardens and breathtaking views of the valley. The homestead dates back to 1703 portraying beautiful architecture, spacious rooms and high ceilings. The interior is an interesting mix of contemporary art and family heirlooms.
