The well known Lanzerac Estate has a 300-year history and was also the first estate to produce Pinotage in 1961. Home to a hotel and spa as well as a choice of excellent restaurants, the estate is set against a dramatic mountain backdrop and amidst rows of lush vineyards and hectares of award-winning landscaped gardens.

The Lanzerac Cellar is open daily for wine tastings, as well as pairings of chocolate, cheese and other delicacies. Cellar tours run daily at 11h00 and 15h00. The tasting room closes at 16h30 for tastings and at 17h00 for wine sales. Costs are R30 per person for the standard tasting, R65 per person for the Chocolate and Wine Pairing, and R100 for a cheese platter for two.

Open Monday – Friday from 09h30-16:30 and on Saturday and Sunday from 09h00 – 16h00. Closed on the 25th and 26th of December, as well as New Year’s Day.

Stop-off and enjoy lunch on the patio overlooking the gardens at The Terrace or in the Lady Anne Courtyard, or for a drink with a touch of history pop in and visit The Taphuis – a Cape country bar that is one of the oldest bars in the Western Cape.
