We arrived early from Cape Town on private day tour. Our guide brought us here as we were interested in this local variety of grape. Our host allowed us to sample several versions, all excellent. Some are available to purchase in Australia. Good news as difficult to transport bottles while travelling. No pressure to buy on the spot. On site... More

The banquet for our conference was held at Kanonkop and what a great choice it was! We were initially served several of their wine choices including the Kadette red blend, a rose, and a white. I enjoyed the Cape blend. Our braai consisted of a snoek, an Atlantic fish with big bones but delicious with sweet potatoes and salad. Service... More

What a lovely wine estate. The staff is friendly, helpful and very informative during the wine tasting. We took a tour through the Paul Sauer Cellar, you could actually smell the Pinotage fermenting. Be sure to visit when you're in the area.
