Special Wines from Franschhoek Winery.

This is a small winery compared with some in this area but wines are made with passion and care. Go and taste these wines definitely worth a visit.

We visited here just over a week ago, tasted some beautiful wines and we were so well looked after. It was a busy time as they were harvesting but still the owner spent time with us and showed us round. We ordered a mix case and when we landed in the UK yesterday so did the wine :-) Amazing service.... More

We popped into Lynx today for a quick wine tasting. The place is smaller and much more personable than most of the big wineries. We were served our wine by the owner and were treated to a little tour of the wine cellar and told how the wine was made. Lynx has a great family feel to it and we... More

Jason took time to explain the wine, its make-up, the background to the winery and its owner in a way that made us feel that we understood the essence of their value proposition. None of the patronising attitude to tasting that one finds at the bigger establishments.

Such a relaxing wine tasting at the end of the day. The Lynx is not included with the wine tasting, but highly recommended to purchase a bottle to taste before purchasing a few to take away. Enjoyed the breath taking scenery of the estate.

Very unique experience at this smaller vineyard. We met the winemaker, Helgaard. He was very attentive and taught us a lot about the farm and how they make their wines. A much better experience here, vs. at some of the larger vineyards. We also loved their wine and were able to order some in the US! Highly recommend a stop... More

I live in Franschhoek and am always looking for unusual or special places to take our many visitors to, as many places are over priced and service not great. Not so with Lynx. I went there on a recommendation of a friend. Jason welcomed us and gave us a most informative, personalised wine tasting. He was filled with stories and... More

Positives: personal touch, great staff, great value for money. Very passionate and knowledgable winemaker who was fantastic at explaining in detail the wine making process Negatives: while it's great that people can drop in, with... More

In comparison to the other wineries in the Stellenbosch – Franschhoek area this is definitely an unusual winery and worth visiting. We were fortunate to meet the owner/cellar master Dieter Sellmeyer who changed his career from running an engineering business and became an excellent winemaker. He provided us with a very insightful introduction on the wines at Lynx are produced... More
