About Dornier Wine Estate

Dornier offers superb food wines which include mostly single variety wines such as Chenin blanc, a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot and a Pinotage. These are award winning wines which all have a perfect balance and concentration.

The Donatus Range consists of Dornier’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon blends and wooded Chenin Blanc blends. JC styen is the winemaker who skilfully produces these fine wines.

A much-loved wine is the Donatus Red which is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and perfectly suited to red meat and steak. The Cocoa Hill range includes a chenin blanc, a sauvignon blanc, a rosé and a red blend at great prices. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, so if you are a newbie to wine tasting, they will teach you about the wine-making process and various flavours.

The beauty of Dornier lies in its architecture from three centuries. There’s a modern wine cellar designed by the late of Christoph Dornier, founder of the estate and creator of the wine labels. The restaurant Bodega restaurant once housed the original cellar which is a Cape Dutch style barn surrounded by fynbos. The Dornier homestead was designed by Herbert Baker amidst a magical garden. The restaurant has a Mexican and Moroccan element to it with a warm atmosphere. Enjoy great food and wine pairings, luxury tapas for two or a selection of tapas and mezze from the menu.
