Amazing service, excellent wines!! The MCC's are fantastic. The views from outside the tasting room over the valley is a perfect way to enjoy the great wines on offer. The building it's self is tastefully designed and feels like an old world wine cellar inside.

Haute Cabriere in the beautiful Franschhoek is a must for anyone interested in good wine. Apart from the wonderful setting on a hill overlooking the town & valley, the young man who served us was very knowledgeable not only about the wine & the sparkling wines using the Methode Classique, but also about the history of the origins of Haute...

Over-busy and certainly not the relaxing atmosphere it should be. More akin to a pub atmosphere where you have to grapple for the the bar attendant's attention and a chair/table to sit on. Ruined the experience

We had an overwhelming amount of visitors to our tasting room over the last week. Unfortunately we do not have control over the amount of walk-ins that visit our establishment. The Tasting Room staff tried to attend to each guest as promptly as possible. Please accept your sincerest apology, we hope you will visit us again in order to experience... More

We have been to the tasting room on a number of occasions - we like the location of the wine estate at the start of the Franschhoek Pass. The views from the grounds of the estate are also spectacular. The tasting room provides a feeling of agelessness and history - the staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. We enjoyed a... More
