Barrels of wine line the quiet cellar as you inhale the aromas of wine and wood. There is a magic down in the cellar, make sure you book the 11am tour to see this for yourself The impressive Dom Perigean bottle chandelier casts a beautiful flower motif on the roof and all the winemakers signatures can be seen on the...

My fiancé and I did a wine tour at Haute Cabriere and it was the best wine tour in Franschoek. The owners wife did the tour and told us a lot about the history of the farm and of Franschoek, as well as the history of sparkling wine. It was very informative. The tour was an hour and a half... More

This wine cellar in the hillside is worth the stop. MCC is the speciality, but some exotic wines to match the owner also offered. Different ranges to taste at different prices. But some to waive the fee.

We had done the cellar tour before and really anjoyed it - the wine maker himself, Achim von Armin, led it and was charming and interesting. However, on this occasion, his eldest son led the tour. He started it by yelling "follow me" and walking... More

Even though we never entered the tasting room for private tasting, we had a nice time at the Uncorked tasting. The view is stunning and the staff was pleasant at all times. Definitely looking forward to trying out their foods and a private tasting in the near future
