Really enjoyed the wine tasting experience in this modern purpose built facility. Very open and spacious, yet very relaxing. Wines are excellent. Didn’t have food but the dining options looked good including buffet style and a ‘sit down’ option with the chef.

This was our first tasting of our visit to the area and it was a nice introduction to the winery. We opted for the Culinaria tasting for 55 Rand. The wines were quite good, in particular we liked the Pinotage and Family Collection Cabernet.

Leopard’s Leap offers the best value for money wines in the whole Cape in my opinion. Their wine tasting is only R40 and their Lookout range is on average R50 a bottle. The quality is good and certainly my favorite.
