Attraction details
Owner description: On the slopes of Bottelary Hills bordering Stellenbosch, we are a family estate where nature provides the perfect backdrop to grow, produce and share award-winning wines. Summer at Hartenberg brings lunches on the terrace or picnics on the lawns followed by buoyant games of boule. Winter invites you to intimate fireside lunches and sumptuous reds, smoky charcuterie and olives, and sensorial cellar tours. Our Wetland Conservation Area, alongside the vineyards, makes for a beautiful setting for walks and shared family fun.

I love wine and one of my favorite weekend pass times is visiting wine farms around the Cape. Hartenberg has always been one of my best-loved estates. Their wines are exceptional especially their Shiraz/Syrah. The picnic they offer is reasonable and scrumptious. The picnic area is beautiful and on a great summer day just astounding.They are not a restaurant and their service is sometimes slow and absent. This is not a dining option for those in a hurry. If you are planning to visit a couple of farms then don't eat at Hartenberg. Just tast their superb wines and move on. If you want to make a day out of it then it is a worth while option.

Well, we could not complain about the service, as there was NONE, we were basically left on our own, with what the table had to offer. If anyone wanted a tiser or a mineral water, well it was just tough luck.
Well, sometimes service is just not on the menu. We asked for the picnic option as there are other establishments such as Boschendal, which do a marvelous picnic in the garden. So at R150 per head (which is the same price you will pay at Boschendal) we all had great expectations as we know what the Boschendal experience is all about.
My, oh my, the quality (never mind the quantity - which left us all wanting to stop off at Steers or McDonals on the way home) was just as poor as the service. There is nothing worse that knowing that you are simply getting ripped off. Fortunately the company was great, and we enjoyed one another, regardless of the terrible food and pathetic service.
Do yourself a favor and rather go to Boschendal for a garden picnic, it is absolutely wonderful.

On a trip to Cape Town with my wife we had Hartenberg wines in two restaurants (Jardines and Beluga) the Shiraz was outstanding so when we visited Stellenbosch we sought out this estate. We were not disappointed ! The place is beautiful and the wine tasting was excellent. The knowledge and passion of our hosts shone through like a beacon and of all the estates we visited this was the best.
It has the feel of a family run business with really motivated staff and the wines they produce are outstanding. So much so that we ordered wines to be sent back to England. You will not be dissapointed if you visit this estate. Derek and Janet
