Description: La Vierge, French for 'The Virgin', is nestled in the folds of the breathtaking Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth) close to Hermanus. Our lovingly tended vineyards, situated in Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge, are characterized by long cool summers influenced by the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean. Using sketches and drawings by renowned British artist, Sir Michael Adams who works and lives in the Seychelles, a design language was created that reflects the rich symbolism associated with the Hemel-en-Aarde area. Our crest represents Adam and Eve pondering the Serpent and Apple.

“VIEWS VIEWS VIEWS”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013

Decided with a few friends to do the Hemel en Aarde wine route, which is the Southern most situated wine route in the country. Being a Sunday a lot of them are closed, so stopped at La Vierge for a wine tasting. When we were seated outside, enjoying the most beautiful views we decided to have a snack to accompany our wines. Chose the Chicken liver pate and one of the group chose the Prawn Starter. Wow what a taste sensation. The wines were peronally a bit young, need to mature a bit more.(my taste) This wine estate is also part of Domaine des Dieux. Will definately go back there for everythign, food, wine and views.

“Something different with a quirky touch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

Great food and wine from this estate to that was previously Newton Johnson before they moved to the larger farm up the road.

In season the oysters and of course cap classique are a must on the fabulous sun deck with the tremendous views!

Followed by a wine tasting and a fabulous lunch or dinner.

Do not pass this one by

“Pork belly bliss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

La Vierge is one of our family favourites. The setting is incredible - surrounded by vineyards with a view all the way to the ocean in the distance. You have the option of sitting inside in the beautifully decorated restaurant or outside on the champagne deck. Either options provide the stunning view. The staff are professional and knowledgeable about their menu and wines; their recommendations superb. From our experience, bookings are essential especially during peak season as this establishment is very popular. My favourite dish by far at La Vierge is their Asian pork belly - absolutely phenominal and cooked to perfection! Delicately crispy on the outside, super soft on the inside and not fatty at all which is what you would normally expect from a pork belly. Their prices are reasonable, their menu exciting and value for money. Can't wait to return!
