This was the first winery that we stopped at when we took the Franschheok Wine Tram. The wine was so lovely that we decidfed to visit again for the Cap Classique taster, as we wouldn't have had time with being on the Wine TramTour. The views of Franschhoek Valley from here are outstanding and the wine is great as well.... More

Located in Franschhoek, this winery stands apart. Beautiful, bouquet on the Chardonnay. Loved it so much, we bought a couple cases. This is a must see winery.

Wine tasting takes place here every day but on a Saturday at 1100 there is a cellar master tour given by either the owner or his son. This is an experience not to be missed. There were 4 couples on our tour and we were greeted by Takuan, the owners' son. On initial meeting I did not quite know how... More

The winery is located just outside of Franschhoek. We were seated outside so that we could enjoy the beautiful view. The wines that we tasted were all Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes - even a combination of the two in sparkling and still - delicious. The timing of the service between wines was not hurried so that you could really... More

If you enjoy wine tasting in a beautiful setting with no crowds then this is a great place. We were there in May which is the beginning of fall. The leaves were starting to turn and the view from the winery is gorgeous. We were so impressed with the lack of crowds at all the wineries we visited, makes the... More

Hi Brook, Thank you for visiting us and your kind words. Autumn/Fall is a lovely time to visit as you say you can see the seasons changing and the visitors are a great deal less than in Summer. But busy or not we are very lucky to have these spectacular views across the Franschhoek Valley. Thanks again and look forward... More

If you have Haute Cabriere on your list of places to visit in Franschhoek WELL DONE. The Farm itself and the building and Cellars are well worth seeing, absolutely beautiful and shows off the passion of a man who loves creating great wine and "champagne". The restaurant has the most wonderfully prepared and presented meals and the taste is unbelievable.... More

I had a group in Cape Town from the USA and they wanted to experience a proper wine tasting experience, with cellar, wine and off course a champaigne taste and off course a little show of how to pop a bottle with a sword!

Good price for tasting various wines and has become my top favourite for Chardonnay. However one point to make the wine is slightly more expensive than buying from a retail store (Woolworth's), which is surprising. It is a wine farm therefore should be cheaper than the stores. Other than that fantastic experience and breathtaking views. I would definitely revisit when... More
