Very rarely do you get the opportunity to enter the actual wine cellar where all the magic happens. Marelize was very informative and friendly. The wines were probably the best in the region. Very happy we stopped here, couldn't recommend it highly enough!

When we arrived at Franschoek/Stellenbosch in April of 2014, we toured the area and visited more than a few vineyards. Although I belong to several wine tasting groups, we rarely taste any red South African wines. The whites are more frequently seen and quite enjoyable, but few reds. So the quest was to try as many red wines as we... More

As no cost the winemaker gave us a full tour of their wine making facility, and explained the whole process at length, and ended up giving us a taste straight out of the tank. We proceeded to taste fantastic wines. The winemaker, with his stories and love for the wine and the wine making process is what made this stop... More

We have stocked Lynx Wines now for 3 years in the UK. The quality of these wines are amazing and this year they have been recognised as having one of the best wines in the Franschhoek area by Decanter Magazine - see the article in February's Magazine. We have just returned from our 2014 wine buying trip seeing both Deiter... More

We made a point of visiting Lynx as it is one of the smallest winery's in the Franschhoek area. Fortunately we were the only 4 folks onsite the morning that we went and had a great session with the assistant wine maker. He was happy to take us right through the whole process letting us see his guys pulp the... More

As always, tasting was done by the winemaker. So nice to get the experts to show you their own wines and they are brilliant wines

We wanted a small intimate Winery to taste wines. We got a personal one to one service. Our Hotel called at 1pm asking for a tour and the owner was so helpful. We learnt so much about wines , flavours and and smells to look out for (not petrol!!!! remember us????)

This was the first stop on our wine-tasting trip to Franschhoek and by far our favorite winery of the day. Although the tasting room wasn't super fancy, both the wines and the conversation were fantastic! We arrived fairly early in the day and were the only visitors at the time. I forget the name of the gentleman who poured our... More

Our stay in Fransschoek coincided with Lynx's Christmas closure. Having read so many good things about this winery we were disappointed it seemed we would not have the opportunity to try for ourselves. On the morning of our departure we decided to have one last try and sure enough Lynx was open. Despite having a full house for tasting Dieter... More
