Some lovely wines on offer here at Muratie. The wine tasting is well presented and the lady who assisted us on the day was very passionate about the farm and the wines they produce.

This is a historical winery, with lots of histories and curious facts. It’s been with the same buildings, decoration and architecture since last century, so it’s very interesting. Besides that, they have great wines and some good jams. An art gallery can visited too.

This must be one of the most unique wine farms in South-Africa. There's so much history. They also have some of the best wines. Make sure to book lunch as well. The chef is AMAZING.
