oude1Situated on the slopes of the Papegaaiberg, surrounded by vineyards and oak trees, the Oude Libertas offers you a collection of artistic, theatre and lifestyle experiences as well as a vital insight into community and environmental development initiatives. Our Corporate Social Investment programme which operates under the Distell Foundation focuses on the general well-being of South African communities, beginning with unborn children and extending into adulthood. Of the four key areas that we focus on, Foetal Alcohol Spectrum disorder (FASD) and Youth Development are the most important. Common to all the initiatives in which we invest, is the intention to contribute holistically to personal growth within communities, embracing mindful and responsible living and conservation. Find out more.

Host your tailor made event or conference by choosing a venue from our wide range of in and outdoor facilities.

Furthermore, it is the home of the Distell Foundation, an umbrella body for Distell’s corporate social investment activities.
With an open-air amphitheatre, coffee, wine bar, art gallery, slow market on Saturdays, yoga classes, special wine tastings, film screenings and picnics on offer - there is something interesting for everyone to enjoy.

We hope to welcome you to our unique spot in the winelands of Stellenbosch soon!
