About Hazendal Wine Estate:
A world-class destination offering culture, cuisine, adventure, and entertainment for the whole family, Hazendal Wine Estate is spread across the Bottelary Hills in the Stellenbosch Winelands, only 30 minutes drive from Cape Town.
Unique amongst Cape Wineland estates, Hazendal celebrates both its Russian owners’ heritage and rich South African heritage. The golden thread connecting the many attractions that Hazendal wine estate has to offer today is this proud fusion of culture, cuisine, and history.
A few offerings and experiences:
Avant-Garde Restaurant and Wine Tasting Lounge:
The opulent Avant-Garde Restaurant offers a seamless fusion of modern design and discreet opulence. It is a fantastic setting for an amazing party with up to 80 guests, complete with an aquarium, chandeliers, and a hand-painted ceiling. There’s also a vodka distillery and a wine cellar.
The estate’s original cellar houses the Wine Tasting Lounge, which is connected to the Avant-Garde Restaurant. Although the room was once a cellar, built in 1870, it has been entirely renovated and now combines traditional and modern architecture. An extravagant and sumptuous atmosphere is made possible by a statement bar, an interior fireplace with copper details, and a private tasting lounge that appears to float above the bar.
The Wine Lounge connoisseurs are prepared to discuss the history, terroir, and winemaking philosophy of Hazendal with you. Allow being led to an enjoyable tasting adventure and what the region has to offer.
Along with 23.5 MCC Blanc de Blanc and Blanc de Noir, you will also be provided with samples of Christoffel Hazenwinkel and Hazendal Estate lines. Boards with cheese and charcuterie are available (R95- R175).

See, the classic car pavilion at Hazendal might not be the only reason you choose to visit the estate, but once you get an eyeful of the amazing vehicles Dr Mark Voloshin, the owner of Hazendal, has collected over the years it is pretty likely to beguile you nonetheless.
