We did a wine tasting here on the day of our arrival in Franschoek. Although we arrived late, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The wine tasting was wonderful. Haute Carriere wines are great and we enjoyed the ambiance of the tasting room.

We booked a cellar tour and sabrage on a Saturday at 11am. The owner’s wife Hildegard gave us the most informative and entertaining wine tasting experience we have ever had in the Cape Winelands. She was so enthusiastic and we had so much fun! It is so interesting to hear about the history of the farm from the person who founded it. Would definitely recommend to all my friends!

You can enjoy the wine tasting inside the lovely tasting room, or sit outside where you have a spectacular view of the Franschhoek valley. Come back to try both - as the atmosphere inside & outside differs a lot.

Very enjoyable morning at Haute Cabriere. Arrived a bit early so they gave us some water to drink as no coffee was available because the restaurant hadn't opened yet. We then did the wine tour and our guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the history of the winery. We did the wine tasting outside and there was a good atmosphere amongst our group. White wine and sparkling wine are not my favourites but the ladies in our group thoroughly enjoyed them. The highlight of our visit was when my sister-in-law was chosen to help demonstrate the sabrage. She decapitated a bottle of MCC with a huge sabre! They then mounted the end of the bottle (with cork) and presented it to her. Lovely touch. Overall thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend.
