THE WATERKLOOF TASTING EXPERIENCE
Turn off the Sir Lowry’s Pass Village Road and enter the Waterkloof gates, and a lane of trees beckon towards the hills, where a total sensory experience awaits. The road meanders through an amphitheatre flanked by reclaimed fynbos and immaculately kept vineyards, before arriving at our state-of-the-art cellar.
A sign welcomes you to our tasting lounge. Stop for awhile outside and breathe deeply. Fill your soul with the views over the surrounding Schaapenberg Hills and the waters of False Bay down below.
Now enter the main area, designed to hold you in awe, showcasing the sincere, clean essence of our Old World-style wines. Tall glass walls allow views of both the working cellar and the farm below, while raw concrete columns frame artworks from well-known South African artists.
FLAVOURS FOR ALL SEASONS
On warm days, the weather calls you outside onto the balcony, a glass of our exceptional, terroir-driven Sauvignon Blanc or Cape Coral Rosé in hand, with the crisp flavours subtly echoed by the fragrances of the cooling breeze. On cold days the fire in the huge fireplace and the stylish leather furniture combines to create an atmosphere of warmth and tranquil leisure, the perfect accompaniment to our mellowed Merlot and spicy Shiraz. And a glass of our Chenin Blanc, Viognier, or Chardonnay pairs perfectly with the laughter of good friends on lazy days. Next door, The Restaurant at Waterkloof provides unpretentious fine dining enjoyed with our passionate wines.
