Owner description: At Beyerskloof we have a passion for Pinotage and a lust for life, friendship and quality. Every bottle of wine embodies the character and values of Beyerskloof, true to the climate, terroir and community of this special piece of earth.Mission:To produce wines of exceptional character, suited for fine tasters and wine lovers everywhere.Description:In 1988 one of the South Africa's most foremost wine makers, Beyers Truter of Kanonkop Estate, in partnership with other wine lovers, established a wine farm with one ideal: to produce wines of exceptional character.A perfectly situated farm with just the right climate and soil quality was selected in the Koelenhof area, within the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin region of the Western Cape. Coincidence provided an appropriate name. The farm's original name was Nooitgedacht, which for five generations belonged to the Beyers family before Jan Andries Beyers sold it in 1895. Beyers Truter is a direct descendent of Jan Beyers, thus making him the sitxh generation to farm this land.This piece of land could only have one name - BEYERSKLOOF.Today Beyerskloof is South Africa's top selling, most popular and loved producer of bottled Pinotage (South Africa's very own cultivar) and renowned for producing excellent multi-award winning wines of character and virtue. We have a passion for Pinotage and an infatuation with the land, life and friendship.

“Wine Tastings for all!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We enjoyed the wines here at this vineyard, especially the Field Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. We got here at the end of our day and we were very fortunate to get inside in time to have their wines. It was a marvelous place with several wines that would suit anyone's palette or taste buds.

“I ♥ Pinotage!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

I have never been a fan of Pinotage but after tasting their Reserve, I am possibly the biggest fan! Great venue with the friendliest staff. Lovely lady in tasting room - very knowledgeable and passionate (helpful too). Can't wait to visit the restaurant.

The normal Pinotage is a good, easy drinking and not to dry, almost fruity. Priced low and very affordable.
If you prefer a full bodied wine, go for the Pinotage Reserve; a deep, heavy and rich type of wine; our choice as well, loved it a lot. Priced very generous.
I am not a Merlot person, but the others seemed to enjoy it, also easy and light.
The wine tasting area is dark and noisy, a bit cramped but might come across as mystical.
Only complaint we had was the fact that the person who served us could not speak proper and understandable English, nor pronounce the words correctly, at some stages the only word one could make out was "dry". So we ended up tasting based on our own feel and guessing.

“Wonderful place”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We enjoyed our time at Beyerskloof. The attendant was very informed and friendly. We were sad that we didn't take the time to tour the vineyard, next time! We got to try 7 different wines and each of us ended up with a couple bottles to take home. The Pinotage Lagare is a lovely rich wine similar to a port, only found at the winery! A must try. My other favorite was the Chenin Blanc / Pinotage. A nice red/white blend. Excellent!

“Very good wines, good tasting, come late”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

After a pinotage burger at the restaurant (highly recommend, see review of red leaf) we had to taste the wines of course and were met by a very nice young man who was very well informed about the wines and also very good in making a wine tasting also a funny thing.

As we were the only guests (it seems after 3pm the place is getting quiet) we did have ample of time and did go for the big tasting including their flagship wine. To our surprise we discovered a very nice white and found out that the standard pinotage that they serve in the restaurant is nothing compared to their reserve.

The fagships wine were also pretty nice but imo not worth the pricedifference compared to the reserve pinotage (i´d rather take 4 of them insteand of one of the Diesel), but of course tastes are subjective.

So we ended up with several bottles we took with us and had a pretty good time.
