Beyerskloof Wine Estate

wine tasting at Beyerskloof
Look out for Beyerskloof's special: 2 x Pinotage burgers and 1 bottle of Pinotage for R220.
Known for their Pinotage, Beyerskloof Wine Estate in Stellenbosch makes a range of wines, all worth tasting – and some of them only available from the farm.
Guests can try all the wines on offer (except for Faith and Diesel) for R20 per person. The range includes various Pinotages, red blends, an easy-drinking rose and a white Pinotage/Chenin Blanc blend.

Their Faith Cape Blend 2009 won the top-three cape blend wines of the year 2012, and for an extra R20 you can try this and their Diesel Pinotage, which is my most favourite wine of theirs! (For a wine to be considered a true Cape Blend, it must have at least 30% Pinotage in the mix. The rest of the varietals can range from Petit Verdot to Shiraz.)

My husband rates their restaurant quite highly. I haven't eaten there yet... but I take his word for it... and so should you.  They have a great midweek special - perfect for couples! Two burgers and a bottle of Pinotage for R220. Go for it!

I've only gone for one tasting in my life, it was paired with chocolate, and it was absolutely delicious! Beyerskloof is one of my favourite wines!
