Under Oaks Winery - Paarl

On our recent wine trip to the Paarl region, one of the venues we stopped in at was Under Oaks. It is a boutique winery with an awesome pizzeria attached (often fully booked). The venue is child-friendly and casual with great Italian hospitality.

wine tasting is free in the small Under Oaks tasting room

They make a good shiraz as well as a host of other reds, such as cab/syrah blend and an excellent pinotage

The small tasting room has a blackboard listing the 3 or 4 wines available for tasting on the day. But the best part is the 'Bargain Barrel'. You'll often find a good deal on some of the older stock. For example, when we were there the other day, they had bottles of their award-winning chardonnay for only R40 per bottle. YUM!

They also make a great Cabernet Savignon and a excellent Chenin Blanc. It's definitely worth a visit!

Open from Tuesday to Sunday 11am-4pm.
