Mooiplaas Wine Estate and Private Nature Reserve boast a pristine natural beauty. Owned and managed by Tielman and Louis Roos, the Mooiplaas vineyards lie on steep slopes of ancient mineral rich soils in the Bottelary Hills of Stellenbosch, overlooking Cape Town. Mooiplaas is a historic and traditional working wine estate, bought by Nicolaas Roos in 1963. He was joined by his two sons Tielman, viticulturist, (1980) and Louis, winemaker (1983). They celebrated 50 years on the farm in 2013. The history of the farm dates back to 1806, with the manor house on the estate – a national monument – an impressive example of Cape Dutch architecture. Tielman and Louis produce a range of environmentally friendly wines rooted in tradition and artisan techniques to reflect the unique terroir.

Mooiplaas is what it's names says: pretty. Old oak trees, a beautiful old manor and tranquil atmosphere. The wine is boutique wine, made with pride and not mass produced. Book a picnic on the lawn, buy a couple of bottles of wine, enjoy the wonderful...More

We visit Mooiplaas as often as possible. By far my favorite wine estate to visit. Best picnics and their wine is top shelf!

Kirsten and John were marvelous hosts of our wine tasting and picnic at Mooiplaas. It was fascinating learning more about the process they used and the picnic was delicious in a stunning setting.

Enjoyed the wine tasting in the old stable. Pleasant surprises on the wine list, like strawberry-, peach-, (coffee)bean- and coco flavored wines. Late autumn, early winter was a beautiful time to visit the farm
