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.

Right guys, I’ve been quite a few (SA) wine farms in my time but I think this is possibly the best I’ve been to (ok joint Le Lude and Beau Constantia). Firstly - the selections of wines are lovely, two whites, rose and two reds...More

A month ago I went with my wife and had burgers on the deck. Excellent. Sunday I took people with me, whom I told about these fantastic burgers, to have lunch. What a disappointment. The buns were stale, the patty, not the same and the...More
