On the slopes of Bottelary Hills bordering Stellenbosch, we are a family estate where nature provides the perfect backdrop to grow, produce and share award-winning wines.

Summer at Hartenberg brings lunches on the terrace or picnics on the lawns followed by buoyant games of boule. Winter invites you to intimate fireside lunches and sumptuous reds, smoky charcuterie and olives, and sensorial cellar tours.

Our Wetland Conservation Area, alongside the vineyards, makes for a beautiful setting for walks and shared family fun.

Arrived late but Caroline worked her magic and provided us with cheese platters and we had wine tasting while we waited. Caroline is a star as far as knowledge of their wines and what a sense of humour and wit, she made our time at the farm quite memorable! The wines are excellent and so were the cheese platters. We...

This venue was booked by friends as a meeting place for lunch. We sat in the garden for a leisurely picnic with wine. It was really enjoyable with lovely food and a perfect setting. If you want to go totally informal there are beanbags and rugs to sit on

Pretty gardens and lawns and reasonable wines to boot. The Merlot was a particular highlight for us. Option to taste indoor in a converted barn or outside in a very pretty courtyard with picnic tables and parasols. also a picnic area around the pond. restaurant also available for lunch
