We have been to the tasting room on a number of occasions - we like the location of the wine estate at the start of the Franschhoek Pass. The views from the grounds of the estate are also spectacular. The tasting room provides a feeling of agelessness and history - the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed a... More

This place was recommended by our guide as it has an amazing view and is ideal for sunset. We've ordered a cheese platter with a Sauvignon bottle. Scenery is magical and place is very soothing. Definitely recommend it if you're in the neighborhood #BonVoyage

Visited today had been really looking forward to the visit but we were greeted by totally uninterested staff. Given wines to try with the barest of information from a guy who was not at all interested in what he was doing. Really disappointed compared to visiting other Wine estates in the area. The views are stunning from the property but... More

Haute Cabriere and Pierre Jourdain are two of our absolute favourite wines. We were very excited to be going to their farm, particularly to get some wine Popsicles that we had heard so much about! The website said they stop tasting at 4 o'clock. We arrived just before 3:30. We understand that we were late but we were met with... More

Afterwards, she told the background of some of remarkable pieces in the tasting room. Next, we visited the cellar which is also an exhibition room for art. we closed the visit... More

Exceptional experience!!! Saturday 1st of October I visited Haute Cabriére with my boyfriend and two of our friends from Denmark. We had booked us in for a guided tour including Wine Tasting in the Cellar. Normally it is the founder or the cellar master who is doing the tour, but this Saturday Achim (The founder) had to be in Pretoria... More

Good location built into the hill with the majority of the winery underground. Affords some beautiful views of the surrounding farms and vineyards. Tasting room tour: not bad. Not the best I've been on but not too bad either. A little more on process would be appreciated. Wines: good New World young wines
