Stony Brook, home of the Ghost Gum
The famous Ghost Gum tree at Stony Brook, Franschhoek Stony Brook Vineyards is a small family-run wine farm in the beautiful Franschhoek valley, only 40 minutes' drive from Cape Town.

Stony Brook concentrates on producing top quality wines that reflect the unique micro climate of this southern-most corner of Franschhoek.

The owners, Nigel and Joy McNaught founded Stony Brook to satisfy their love of quality wines. This boutique wine farm produces many different wines in relatively small quantities in an environmentally-friendly manner to minimize their carbon footprint. They were joined by their son, Craig, in 2011 who has taken over the winemaking duties.

Wine tastings are offered on the farm in the newly-built tasting room adjacent to the cellar. For more information on tasting wine at Stony Brook visit our Tastings page.

Stony Brook's flagship wine, 'Ghost Gum', is a Cabernet Sauvignon and spends 32 months in new French Oak. This highly-acclaimed wine is named after the one hundred and fifty-year-old Ghost Gum tree that sheds its bark in the summer and is visible from the farm's tasting area.
