A restored historic wine cellar with a tasting room and wines marketed as ‘Hawksmoor at Matjieskuil’, this wine estate can be found on 220 hectare Matjieskuil Farm. Their wines include a Chenin Blanc crafted from 25 year old bush vines and Pinotage ranging from an unoaked 2005 to lightly oaked 2006.

Once they planted a new block of Mourvèdre, their first harvest from this block was in 2008. They also have a Waarburg label whose range has a Rhone-styled red blend and Chenin Blanc. These Waarburg vines grow in the vineyard next door which once formed part of Matjieskuil. Winemaker John Hargreaves is assisted by Brad Duggett in creating limited-release Pinotage and Shiraz in Die Laaitjie cellar on their sister farm in Robertson.

Visiting this farm is pure country delight as it is home to cows, horses, pelicans, porcupines and other animals. Escape the city and find relaxation at this farm. Enjoy the Stellenbosch sunsets, dirt roads and getting away from it all. Book a wine tasting and sample some of their boutique wines produced on the farm. Try to identify differences between wines using the same grapes but made by different wine makers or those matured in French and American oak.
