Recently popped into Lynx Wines while on a creative workshop in Franschhoek. The celler tour was amazing - really informative and personal. We then sat down to a wine tasting, the blanc de noir was my favourite! Easy drinking and perfect for lunch. Was such a nice break from work! Would really recommend it!

On a company workshop in Franschhoek the team needed a break and decided to go for a wine tasting at Lynx Wine Estate. I was blown away by Dieter (the winemakers) passion and commitment to his craft. We were given a quick tour where he explained the process himself and his team go through in producing their range of wines.... More

After reading the reviews I went with high expectations. The wine tasting and tour was interesting but the wines were not as good as I expected. I preferred the other 3 estates we visited on the day.

My husband and I visited Lynx today while in Franschhoek. We are doing the red line tram tomorrow and Lynx is not on it but it is well worth a separate trip. We met the owner, saw the cellar and learned all about wine making and how different grapes are used. Much more interesting and informative than other tastings. Tasting... More

Lynx was suggested as part of our wine tour, with the Constantia Wine Tour, as its surely was a great tip! whilst slightly off the main road, it is well worth the extra effort! Dieter, the owner and wine maker was there, he took us through his delicious wines, and then showed us around the cellar. The Viognier and Shiraz... More

We visited Lynx after enjoying a bottle of their Blanc de Noir 2014 at a restaurant in Franschhoek. We enjoyed a tasting and were then shown the fermentation process, production, barrels and wines ready and waiting to be delivered. All accompanied by a clear comprehensive explanation. These are people who not only know their wines, but truly love what they're... More

Had a wonderful visit to this smaller wine estate. Tasted some excellent wines that are relatively inexpensive. Dieter, the owner and winemaker, took us through 5 or 6 wines giving amazing context on production methods, the history of producing that wine, and had some interesting stories on how they came up with various wine names. He also gave us a... More

My boyfriend and I stopped into Lynx one evening after reading about it on TripAdvisor. The owner was expecting a large group but still took the time to do our tasting, chat with us, and show us the cellar without making us feel rushed in any way. It was the first winery we have ever been to where we loved... More

Dieter, the cellar master, is a font of wine making knowledge. He does full wine making tours, showing you the grape tubs, fermentation process and barrels. His wines are delicious and creative. He can do tours in English, German and Spanish. The winery is a few km outside of Franschhoek but well worth the detour.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Lynx Wines, having discovered it on trip advisor. My husband loved all the wines and Dieter even found a wine I liked (I generally don't drink wine). It was so interesting to meet the owner and he spent time explaining the history of the business and also the wine making process.... More
