Embrace romance at Fort Simon, a magical wedding venue nestled in the enchanting Stellenbosch Winelands. With its distinctive castle-style architecture set amidst the idyllic valley of vineyards, our estate offers an unmatched setting for your special day. Surrender to the timeless charm of our historic buildings and the breathtaking surroundings, curating unforgettable memories.


The Houmoed Cellar, dating back to 1901, serves as our captivating wedding chapel. Once a wine cellar, it was transformed in 1967 by Dr. Simon Uys and further renovated in 2013 to preserve its unique character while providing a serene wedding setting. Today, the deeply-stained walls narrate the tales of the estate's earliest red wines, adding a touch of nostalgia to your nuptials.



Crafted in 1969, Fort Anna stands as our premier wedding venue, offering a versatile foyer and reception hall. Surrounded by flourishing gardens and expansive lawns, it provides an idyllic location for your private celebrations, seamlessly accommodating every season's charm.
