The name Hazendal originates from dutch and translates to, “the valley of the hare”. The abundance of wild hares in the area was so significant that the name stuck hundreds of years later. Since then there has been numerous developments on the estate apart from creating beautiful wines.
Our approach for the Hazendal upgrade is to highlight all the beautiful aspects of the current estate through the lens of the first noteworthy feature of the estate, the hare. To achieve this, we developed an engaging illustration of a wild hare, constructed out of significant features from the estate. This includes, the original manor house, fauna and flora, the mountain scenery and vineyards. To complement the detailed illustration, we treated the rest of the design as clean and minimalist as possible.
The Result is is a timeless design that is both intricate and subtle. From afar the large hare grabs ones attention, but once in hand the details and rich story comes to life.
Over the Years it has become a paradise for wine, leisure, culture and the love of the outdoors. Hazendal has developed an ecologically friendly golf course, created a game reserve for indigenous fauna and flora and invested in antiquities and art peppered across the estate for all to enjoy.
