Let’s entice you off well-travelled routes in Stellenbosch and onto a meandering valley road that will take you back to gentler times? Here under sprawling oaks and in the shady avenues of giant poplar trees, you’re quite suddenly in deep Knorhoek country.

It’s peaceful here with little of modern life to intrude.  Soon, you begin to sense the wine farm’s long history – the clues are everywhere in low, white-washed walls, Cape Dutch architecture and the well-established gardens.

Early family custodians of the land knew of the rich water source here and the potential to produce bountiful and highly sort-after harvests. In modern times, it is the vineyards that have triumphed, soil, climate and creative planting resulting in consistently fine wines.

But today, Knorhoek is your playground. Two hundred hectares are yours for rambling, exploring and relaxing, making way only for the estate’s outrageously flamboyant permanent guests – peacocks that strut and flair their tails.

Enjoy lunch while your children are free to play safely. Knorhoek Restaurant is known for its farm-to-table fresh and delicious dishes. But there is also ample space to spread out on Knorhoek Wine Farm and for couples to taste estate wines and enjoy lunch around the pool or picnic under a canopy of trees.

Of course, there is really no need to leave at the day’s end. Book and stay a while in self-catering garden cottages or in the bed and breakfast suites that lead out onto broad lawns and gardens. Let the days lengthen and all it remains is for you to shake off the pace of city life.
