Owner description: Hidden Valley Wines offers spectacular wines, breathtaking views, olives and olive oil, an award-winning restaurant, weddings, cheese platters, nature trails and picnics. Join us 7 days a week. Hidden Valley is the culmination of years of determined patience. Dave Hidden, a winemaker by training, but entrepreneur by nature, has realized his dream. This secluded farm nestled against the Stellenbosch Mountains, now boasts a magnificent new cellar amongst its pristine vineyards. The parcel of land was pointed out to Dave in the late seventies by Dave’s Viticulture Professor; he remarked that this was amongst the best vineyard land in South Africa. Dave took heed of this and acquired the property in 1998. After careful consideration and in keeping with a holistic approach to the environment, the farm was developed to its current glory. Although the winery is a state of the art, gravity fed cellar, it is nestled into side the slope and intended to blend back into the environment in time. The building materials, namely stone, wood and glass are purposely selected to present a contemporary yet functional structure. The cellar is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, almond orchards and natural vegetation, each occupying an integral part of the farms’ ecosystem. Sustainable agriculture is a common theme in every approach both in and outside the cellar.

“Excellent Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Drove up the road to be pleasantly surprised by the "Hidden Valley"! What a beautiful location with breathtaking views! The Sauvignon Blanc is packed with tropical fruit aromas; the reds are silky smooth and deliciously fruity! There are lovely cheese platters and an award-winning restaurant. An absolute must if you're in this area in Stellenbosch!

“Great wine, food and view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had our wedding at Hidden Valley Wines and the setting, food and wine selection was better than we could have wished for. It was truly the best day of our lives. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and venue is out of this world. We've since been back for lunches and wine tastings. Don't forget to try the olives and the olive oil that they also make on the farm- yummy!
