Certificate of Excellence

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.

“Incredible Picnic Locale”
Reviewed 5 March 2013

Our tour guide from PG Tops took us to Hartenberg Estate for a picnic which was the highlight of our day in the winelands. The picnic area is private, looking out to the vineyards in the area and the food and presentation was just delightful. Definitely a romantic and special experience, especially as we were there celebrating our honeymoon. Highly recommended for anyone looking for an amazing winelands picnic.

“Outstanding Wine and Service”
Reviewed 1 January 2013 via mobile

We had a wine tasting which compares with no other, we lost count how wines we had presented to us at least 8. This was accompanies with a beautifully presented cheese board and home grown olives. All in it came to 200 Rand it was a good job we walked to the Hartenburg as we left very merry !! Dominic was outstanding both in his knowledge of wine and Namibia !
Well worth a visit.

“Great lunch venue”
Reviewed 27 December 2012 via mobile

We booked for a lunch at the Hartenberg estate since we knew it from long time ago. We took the picknick lunch outside. The food and the wines were great and the staff was fantastic. They also provided, next to our table in the grass, comfortable mats and pillows for an ultra relaxing time.
We had a superb time here at the estate. Recommendable.

“Fantastic wine tasting”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

On a recent trip to Hartenberg, we wanted to taste some wines and were very pleasantly surprised. The Someliers were very knowledgeable of their wines and we ended up staying for 1 and a half hours tasting 5 wines as it a fantastic experience to taste the wines listening to the passion of the presenters. The experience was fantastic and I would recomment it to anyone. btw, their Shiraz is heavenly!
