Visit Knorhoek Wine Farm, Stellenbosch.

Wide-open spaces are a great place to decompress after months of lockdown, and Knorhoek ticks all the boxes for the perfect close-to-home country escape.

Situated in the Knorhoek Valley just outside Stellenbosch next to Quoin Rock Wine Estate, easy accessibility makes this working farm the perfect choice for family outings. The allure of delicious farm-to-table dishes, and top Simonsberg wines are just part of the story.

Enjoy a lazy lunch around the pool, or a picnic under a canopy of trees with a lunch menu served from 10am to 4pm. Starters range from smoked salmon salad with peppadews, dill mayo and garlic crumbs; to sesame crusted chicken salad with avocado, cos lettuce and vinaigrette. While Knorhoek burgers also remain a menu highlight, the estate’s superb Country 3- Course Feast definitely makes a visit here worthwhile.

The estate caters for events for 50 to 80 guests, as well as for special birthday celebrations for children. These can either be enjoyed at the pool area, on the veranda, or out in the garden. Options include day events, and day-to-evening occasions, with catering options available on request.

Day outings offer a great blast of fresh country air, but weekend getaways allow the whole family more of a chance to take advantage of this 200-hectare Winelands property. Both bed and breakfast and self-catering units are available. Breakfast is served daily, and lunch can be enjoyed at the restaurant.

Guests can also delight in birdwatching, cycling, hiking, or running, or take advantage of a leisurely ramble across the estate - all enjoyed in a safe, beautiful space. A choice of three trail routes offer potential sightings of the local wildlife, such as, owls, eagles, porcupines, or even a leopard.
