Four of us turned up to have a look around and sample some wines. We found the staff to be inviting and polite and the little tour they gave us was very interesting. Bought some nice wine as well! Oh, and we happened to meet the proprietor as well and he was very interesting to chat to.

Really good wine - I have ordered several cases. Dieter, the owner, talked us through the history of the place under his management and took us round. We tasted 7 - 8 wines, all very good indeed. Very relaxing as only small and so few guests.

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 is a small winery and you feel the benefits of that when you arrive.

By chance our family popped in for a quick visit and tasting (we spent the night next door at St.Croix) What a pleasant surprise! Helgard was not only happy to show us how he produces his wines , he gave us a taste of their star studded range including their flagship The Lynx. Apparently not always available for tasting, this... 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. Maybe because it is a family affair. Quenton who manages the farm greeted us like... 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 enough to meet the wine maker and see the first grapes arriving from the vineyard.... More

There are many nice wine estates to choose from in the Franschhoek area. After a visit to a couple of the big ones, we went to Lynx, a small estate run by a very nice and knowledgable man who welcomed us even after opening hours. It was a very personal and pleasant experience. We got all the stories behind the... More
