Nice wine tasting. Maybe we went in a wrong day (national holiday) and maybe out of season (pre winter), and the place was empty. I hope we'll come later to have a better perception.

Visited this place about 5 years ago and had the most amazing chocolate pairing wine tasting experience. The guy in charge was so helpful and knowledgeable.

We belong to the wine club and they have wine pairing dinners with their head chef and winemaker/ cellar master. They have beautiful red , white and Rosé wines. It was the first wine estate to produce a pinotage wine (1958). This place is breathtaking beautiful. Staff are so friendly.

As you enter the driveway for Lanzerac wine estate, a hush may fall over your group. A beautiful tree-lined drive builds your anticipation of wonderful things to come. We visited Lanzerac because a friend recommended the wine and chocolate pairing. While it was good, I am sure many of the other wineries have something similar, and perhaps better. Nothing stood...

We tried the wine and chocolate pairing, it was a terrible experience. The personnel gave very little explanation of the wines, and when I asked why they chose the 2014 year the answer was "because the other years are sold out"... no education, no knowledge and no rationale in choosing the wines. Finally they brought me one piece of chocolate... More

The historic and hospitable Lanzerac Estate has been a favourite since the 1980s - through all its changes. The setting is simply magic, it's close to town and recently the food has been outstanding too. In February and March I enjoyed two ad hoc early light dinners outside on the terrace. Both times we shared a number of generous starters:... More

The bonus of this estate is its proximity to town. Not the best wine tasting ever but still a good experience. Chose a standard tasting of 5 wines for 65 rand.
