Tucked away between low mountain slopes, Kanonkop Wine Estate offers private and group tastings of South African awarded red wines, some of which are over 50 years old. Named after a 17th-century cannon that was used to announce ships arriving at Table Bay, the estate has been in the same family for more than 40 years. You can train your palate with the help from the knowledgeable staff in the classroom setting of a traditional tasting room. Once outside, grab a cheese plate and a glass of red wine, find a peaceful spot under an oak tree, and drink in the cold sea breezes in the garden.

  • Lovely venue. I suspect our timing was immaculate as we managed to see the team press wine, visit the cellars and do the complete tour. The wine tasting was classy and very professional. The staff were friendly, helpful, well informed- the facility is neat and clean, and yet has a family feel to it. Was very impressed with the experience
  • This is one of my favorite wine producers in Cape Town, while the venue doesn't offer much beside the tastings, they do this very well. Top notch red wines and cellar prices are very good.
