We came from La Petite Ferme where we had a personalized wine tour and i found this wine tasting a little bit commercial. Nevertheless, the wine and the staff was awesome! You should give it a try

It was rather busy when we arrived so it became a bit hectic when the next wine was due for tasting as there were not enough people to serve you and explain the wine. 2 options for wine tasting and the extra 2 are worth paying the extra for. Beautiful cellar area where you taste.

We are big fans of Haute Cabriere wines and as we were on a wine tour we thought why not visit. A beautiful setting, even a helicopter landing pad. The weather was glorious and really too hot to sit outside as there was no shade available. We sat inside and despite a nice server, the tasting experience was spoilt somewhat... More

Having visited previously for an EXCELLENT Cellarmaster's tour, I brought friends for the normal weekly tour and was very disappointed. Unfortunately they gave us a guide with very little knowledge about wine-making, who didn't even explain how the Methode Cap Classique was made until we asked after the tour was over. The tour was all of a 10 minute walk... More

Dear JKC123 I would like to apologise sincerely for what happened to you during your recent visit to Haute Cabriere. The situation was certainly not handled correctly by us. You should not have been charged at all, since you were understandably not happy with the standard of the cellar tour. If you would kindly make contact with me directly, I... More

We are having a brilliant time here and Louisa are giving us the best tasting of the day. We asked if we could buy a bottle and do a sabrage since ive done it before, she allowed it without any hesitation and brought me the sabre. Great views of the valley. Thanks to Louisa and HC for a great time.

The place has nice views and nice areas for wine tasting; both inside and outside. You can watch beautiful sunset from there and the outside temperature was adequate for some wine tasting. We discovered the flavor of a nice unwooded Pinot Noir and a nice Cap Classique Belle Rose there.

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
