PUBLIC PROFILE

Who are we?

THE UITKYK WINE FARM WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1712 BUT SUBSEQUENTLY PURCHASED IN 1763 BY MARTIN MELCK. THE FARM WAS A WEDDING PRESENT TO HIS DAUGHTER AND SON-IN-LAW, JOHAN BEYERS. MELCK, CAME TO THE CAPE AS A GERMAN MERCENARY AND MADE HIS FORTUNE AS A FARMER. The name of Uitkyk "look out" given to the estate is most appropriate. Situated on the southwestern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, it looks out across the Cape Flats to Table Mountain in the distance. It is a splendid setting for the striking and magnificent homestead on the property. The 18th century Georgian neo-classical double-story house completed in 1788, is one of only three such houses left in the country.
