Found this little goldmine whilst driving to Franschoek and we decided to pop in on our way home. I am so glad we did as it is an amazing little spot. The wines are magnificent and when the owner/wine maker is the server, you know...More

Just a spectacular place to visit for a tasting. The wine is world class and the service is even better. It's clear that the people serving you the wine have drank it themselves and they speak from a place of knowledge and deep appreciation. Lynx...More

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.

Wonderful experience at small boutique winery, Lynx Wines. The winery is quiet and you have a chance to take in the gorgeous view of the Klein Drakenstein mountains. The larger winery experience sometimes feels like we're being moved through like cattle. Lynx really feels different....More

A smaller vineyard with a personal touch. We were the only visitors there and we enjoyed the wine tasting. The cellar visit was really informative and very personalised.

A glass of Lynx Xanache at dinner and some prior research of small independent wineries brought us to Lynx. The greeting in the testing room was warm, the guy in charge clearly knowledgeable and happy to share his love of Lynx wines. We were lucky...More

Hello, We are a retired, informal wine appreciation group of up to about 24 and would love the opportunity of tasting your wines. To be followed by a simple warm meal It would be for Wednesday 12th August. Perhaps something like fresh bread with the wine tasting and some sort of casserole followed by a pudding and coffee. We do have a budget to stick to, but wondered if you would be open to something like this please? Warm regards, Jenny Harris.
