Overview

Turn off the Sir Lowry's Pass Village Road and enter the Waterkloof gates, and a lane of trees beckon towards the hills, where a total sensory experience awaits. The road meanders through an amphitheatre flanked by reclaimed fynbos and immaculately kept vineyards, before arriving at our state-of-the-art cellar. A sign welcomes you to our tasting lounge. Stop for awhile outside and breathe deeply. Fill your soul with the views over the surrounding Schaapenberg Hills and the waters of False Bay down below. Now enter the main area, designed to hold you in awe, showcasing the sincere, clean essence of our Old World-style wines. Tall glass walls allow views of both the working cellar and the farm below, while raw concrete columns frame artworks from well-known South African artists.

We had the three course set menu at R530-00 and a bottle of 2008 Merlot at R250-00, but the food was top notch. Different tastes and sensations and the view is spectactular. I brought Jhb visitors and they were blown away.

Some great wines. My advice would be to take the more expensive tasting as the wines are superior. The Voignier is very good, although too few bottles to allow tasting. Their first MCC (a Rose) is very biscuity and well worth trying. If you like...More

I visited the wine tasting venue at Waterkloof twice over the last two weeks. Service was excellent and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The wines are great, but the views are even better. I highly recommend their platters while sipping on the wines.More

Good day. Only our False Bay Chardonnay is unwooded. The Circumstance and Peacock Wild Ferment are both wooded, but not too heavily, as they spent time in older 600L barrels.
