This wine cellar is small but they produce very good wines. The gentlemen that assisted us in the tasting has an excellent knowledge of their wine & wine making in general. They will be on our to do list for a repeat visit.

We live in the Boland so good wine farms are certainly not strange to us but Lynx is definitely worth the effort of going slightly off the normal route. Their wine tasting is very good and - if you can get it before it is...More
