About
At Beyerskloof we have a passion for Pinotage and a lust for life, friendship and quality. Every bottle of wine embodies the character and values of Beyerskloof, true to the climate, terroir and community of this special piece of earth.Mission:To produce wines of exceptional character, suited for fine tasters and wine lovers everywhere.Description:In 1988 one of the South Africa's most foremost wine makers, Beyers Truter of Kanonkop Estate, in partnership with other wine lovers, established a wine farm with one ideal: to produce wines of exceptional character.A perfectly situated farm with just the right climate and soil quality was selected in the Koelenhof area, within the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin region of the Western Cape. Coincidence provided an appropriate name. The farm's original name was Nooitgedacht, which for five generations belonged to the Beyers family before Jan Andries Beyers sold it in 1895. Beyers Truter is a direct descendent of Jan Beyers, thus making him the sitxh generation to farm this land.This piece of land could only have one name - BEYERSKLOOF.Today Beyerskloof is South Africa's top selling, most popular and loved producer of bottled Pinotage (South Africa's very own cultivar) and renowned for producing excellent multi-award winning wines of character and virtue. We have a passion for Pinotage and an infatuation with the land, life and friendship.

We flew down to the Western Cape for the past long weekend and randomly chose a few wine farms to visit. The experience at this wine farm was a very unpleasant experience! When we entered the tasting area there were ladies not talking to one another, but yelling at each other on the top of their voices. Far past the normal limits of alcohol consumption. We soon realized why! As we entered the wine tasting hall, wine was immediately poured to us in glasses way past the tasting line. No explanation nothing. No one asked us which of the wines we wanted to taste and how tasing works on this farm. Other wine farms offer different types of wines you want to taste. On a previous occasion the same happened. Each glass is poured way above the level. How much money does this wine farm loose with this behavior? We waited forever between our tastings and the information that was given was without any passion and as fast as the waiter could. When we complained the coloured guy that seemed to be in charge came to our table, cleary also way over the normal limit of alcohol consumption. It was actually disgusting. He spoke so much nonsense and poured our glasses really full. We can just imagine that this must be a drinking haven for the students with no order and glasses poured nearly full with each tasting. We decided to leave after 2 tastings. When we left I politely asked a young lady at the restaurant at what time do they close? This was about 3h45. She rudely answered: " We already closed and turned around"! What about? I am so sorry mam. We close at 4hoo, kitchen already closed, but we will definitely see you on a next occasion. We love Beyerskloof wines. However after this shocking experience, we are done. Many other way more classy, upmarket wine farms to visit and buy wine from. This wine farm surely needs more supervision from superiors.

The tasting experience wasn't great. The lady serving us poured the wine told us what it was and then moved on. It was Sunday just before lunch. Busy but not overly busy that there was no attention given to the customer.
I bought 3 bottle of white pinotage. Not because of any assistance from the hostess but because it's an interesting varietal and methodology.

This was my first wine tasting experience in South Africa, and immediately a very nice one. We had an extended tasting alongside their selection, worth trying and being (when back home)!

The wines were very nice and had a very stunning view all around. We had horrible service as we arrive at 3:50pm and they hardly wanted to serve us as at 4:30 they closed.
They refused to open another bottle to finish the wine tasting as it was after four pm, and we basically gone kicked out at 4:20.
Such a pitty the worst service but wines are so good. I definitely will not recommend this to anyone of my friends.

What an amazing experience once again, have been visiting Beyerskloof since 2013 and don’t see myself stopping. The wine is amazing and the staff very friendly and helpful. Whether you want to buy a bottle and sit outside or enjoy the vibe inside the concrete tasting room with no cell signal(nothing can both you while tasting good wine). This is definitely a place to stop while passing Stellenbosch. Once the tasting is done spoil yourself with the legendary Pinotage burger.

We love pinotage not only due to the fact that we are South African and love to support locally produced products. However this is not a farm that will ever see me again. Wines not great. Staff not helpful, more interested in tasting the wines themselves than assisting patrons.

When your in The Paarl, Stellenboch area wine tasting is a must and the Beyerskloof wine farm is a must. You have so many options for tasting the wine here small, medium and large, but when it comes to wine tasting go big or go home and taste option 3 where you get to taste all the the best wines they make. They treat you like part of the family here and I would recommend putting out enough time for tasting and enjoying the restaurant after. The staff are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and funny as hell so you will forget how much wine you had and will probably struggle to walk straight when you are done, but its so totally worth it. Isac our guide to tasting the wine is extraordinarily friendly and helpful and takes wine tasting to the next level. And then you have Buddy the wine maker. If possible to do a cellar tour with Buddy, do it, as he is part of the team that makes some of the best wines having him show and tell you how its done is exceptional. And if you are there on a day that Mr Beyers Truter is there we will surely make an appearance. The food in the restaurant is super good and meat especially is soft juicy and come of the bone with out any effort. My best thing here tough is their Faith wine in conjunction with the faith foundation and proceeds made on this wine contributes to the foundation.F.A.I.T.H (Fetal Alcohol-Syndrome and Interrelated Treatment Help Fund). A must taste and a must visit cellar.

R20 will get you 6 wines and the fee is wavered if you buy a bottle. Wines were alright, nothing that I will miss. Definitely a stop for red wine lovers, it is home of the pinotage. Beautiful scenery and a very casual vibe. One must fetch their own wine taster each time though.
