We were very privileged that our tour guide knew about this place. It was so much fun to have a private tour of the cellar and where/how they make their wine. Whilst the vineyard is very small it didn't take anything away from the place....More

Just a few kilometers off the main road into Franschhoek, we really enjoyed our wine tasting. Helgard presented the wines he made in a very unpretentious manner. We tasted about 6 wines, all of which were interesting. The Xanache really caught my eye and twisted...More

As with most wineries in this district the views are to die for. What is so special about Lynx is the wines are all superb and their Rosé is to die for!

A small-scale winery that feels off the beaten track. Staff was very welcoming and offered us a tour of the cellar and a very informal tasting. It's a relatively modest space, but still with a lovely porch and views out to the vines and mountains....More

Searching for small out of the way wineries we found Lynx. Very unpretentious, we got a very informative and interesting wine tasting in a small intimate setting. Very rustic. We also were offered an impromptue tour which was also very interesting. And I cannot forget...More

Foremost, Lynx wines are excellent. Lovely blends and a number of varietals. The tasting experience in itself is engaging and informative. We were hosted by Jason who, besides being really pleasant with a good sense of humour, has a depth of knowledge about Lynx wines....More

Lynx was our first stop for our day trip to Fraschhoek and we picked it based on reviews. In August, there was hardly anybody there, so very quiet and perfect for enjoying the calm and the beauty of the surrounding area. We tasted a few...More

We did a wine tasting with a cellar tour. The owner, Dieter did this himself. It was very interesting and all the wines were very good. Lynx is not one of those big commercial farms. This makes it rather unique and you can be sure...More

While this winery is not on the main road you should go. It's on the road to Mandela's last prison. Dieter, who is the owner and wine maker, is delightful. We are in the winery business and he was very interesting to talk with. You...More

We truly enjoyed Lynx winery. It is a small winery off the beaten path and very much worth a visit. Jason was knowledgeable, personable and highly interactive. The wines were smooth, impressive and stood out over other wineries in the area.
