What a great couple of hours learning the history of Haute Cabriere wines and the fascinating stories along their way. Hildegard had us enchanted and we thoroughly enjoyed this whole experience. The wine tasting and food didn’t disappoint one bit either! Thank you so much!!

We enjoyed the views and retreated into the cool mountain cellar for a wine tasting. We were served by friendly Enrico. The Pinot Noir is one of the better South African versions of this varietal.

The views are definitely the best part of this vineyard, absolutely stunning looking down the whole valley. We did the full tasting which was good and had sparking, red, and white wine which was nice. Would go back for the views alone though!

Hello Edward, Thank you for your feedback. With sabrage, it is very dangerous, we only allow staff to perform, after training. We do boast an amazing view, and hope you will visit again when the weather plays along. The Haute Cabrière Tasting Room team.
