Haute Cabriere was a unique wine estate. I loved that it was carved into the mountain. The only sign of the estate were the beautiful grand doors on the side of the mountain. We enjoyed our wine samples in their outdoor patio while soaking in the stunning views of Franschhoek down in the valley below. We enjoyed sampling their sparkling... More

The view and the surrounds make it worth it, even if the wine is disappointing for red wine lovers. We sat in front of a nice fire and had a lovely visit. Wouldn't go back because we aren't fans of the wine, but it's a gorgeous location.

Hi Alida, Thank you for joining us and commenting on your visit. In the middle of winter it's always a pleasant surprise when the weather lifts and the wonderful Franschhoek Valley below can be seen. If not a roaring fire in our Tasting Room will keep you warm. As to the wine, wine appreciation is a highly personal and objective... More

Went there on a cold rainy day last week and we were very pleased to see the huge fire. Very cozy. Franco did our tasting and it was great ! It's located in a cave, original place.

Hi Cindy, Thank you for joining us and taking the time to post your review. Our fireplace has proved very popular in the winter months and with a glass or two of Ratafia, they certainly warm you up.

This was my favourite estate from the four we visited on our quick day trip to Franshoek from Cape Town. The wine tasting room was really cosy with a lovely fire. The staff were very welcoming and the five wines we tasted were all very good particularly their bubbly.

Beautiful views, friendly staff. We tasted 7 different wines, and ended up buying cases due to the excelent wine and enjoying the estate so much. I would recommend this as a must stop when wanting to taste wines in Franschoek.

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 :(

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
