Presented either on the veranda or in the Anthonij Rupert Tasting room’s beautifully appointed interior, our tastings here feature our Cape of Good Hope, Anthonij Rupert and L’Ormarins ranges, and are presented in an informative, interactive style while allowing plenty of time for relaxation and soaking up the beautiful scenery.
The Terra del Capo Tasting Room, situated at the entrance to the property, was designed to showcase the company’s Italian-inspired Terra del Capo range. Wine tasting here is a relaxed, indulgent experience in elegant surroundings. Guests have a bird’s eye view of the activity in the bottling line through a glass wall, as well as panoramic views of the estate and mountains. Below the tasting room is an antipasti bar, perfect for a quick lunch of freshly prepared local ingredients.
Bespoke wine tastings of our L’Ormarins, Cape of Good Hope and Anthonij Rupert wine ranges can be enjoyed at leisure. Furnished throughout in the mid-nineteenth century Cape Dutch style, the house features beautiful wood beam ceilings, yellowwood floors and spacious entertainment areas. Adorning the walls is a beautiful collection of period art, which depict the Cape’s landscape in the mid-nineteenth century while the rooms are tastefully furnished with carefully sourced antique pieces. The front rooms lead out onto a veranda with breathtaking views of the Franschhoek Wine Valley, whilst the back porch displays vistas onto the rose garden and the Groot Drakenstein Mountains. Alongside the Manor House is a carefully selected herb garden, which showcases a broad range of culinary and medicinal herbs. Wine tastings are presented in flights where wines with similar properties are grouped together. Vintage wines are also on offer. Your experience may be complemented by spending the afternoon, soaking up the picturesque views of the Franschhoek Valley, while indulging in High Tea.
