A great tour of the processes and very well looked after by our guide. Sitting outside for the wine tasting with fantastic views. A real treat.

We started the day here and didn't really go anywhere else. With 7 varieties on the tasting menu it was a relaxing fireplace kind of day and the sommelier was patient in the explanations and very generous in the pouring.

The estate is beautiful and your pictures will be amazing!!! The wine though is mass produced. It's uninspired and lacks depth. The nose is boring and the finish is lack luster. I'm not even a wine snob and I recognized this. Sorry :(

Dear Genea R Thank you so much for your feedback; it is great to hear you enjoyed the visit to Haute Cabriere and the special setting, overlooking the Franschhoek Wine Valley. Wine appreciation is obviously a matter of personal taste and preference, and I am sorry to hear that our wines failed to impress you. Our white wines are unwooded... More

On our way back to Cape Town central, we decided to pull into Haute Cabriere for a quick tasting. Thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and atmosphere of the place. Picturesque setting with friendly staff. I'm not a wine expert so unfortunately I can't add my two cents there ;) great visit.

We had a great time here yesterday with an informative cellar tour with the tasting outside in a spectacular setting. My partner was lucky enough to assist with the sabrage and receiving the top of the champagne bottle as a gift. Friendly and informed staff make it a must visit in this area

Haute Cabriere was the first winery we visited on our trip to SA based on recommendations from a friend. We arrived before lunch. The tasting guide was attentive and well informed about the wines they available to taste. The tasting room is somewhat modern and had a "big operation" feel to it. But the wines were good and we purchased... More
