Just 302km outside Cape Town, Fryers Cove is worth the journey, with wonderful wines to discover and beautiful ocean vistas. The vineyards run right beside the coast and the unique climate and terroir impart a special quality to its award-winning wines; you can almost taste the sea salt.

These vineyards are more environmentally friendly than most—Fryer’s Cove believes in sustainable farming practices and uses less chemicals; it has even introduced some organic farming methods. 

Fryer’s Cove’s restaurant and wine cellar serves seafood dishes such as fresh calamari, hake and prawns, but caters to the meat lovers as well, with items like rump steak, pork and chicken wings.

For dessert, choose between sticky toffee pudding and the cake of the day. All dishes can be accompanied by Fryer’s Cove award-winning wines – Fryer’s Cove Pinot Noir, Doringbay Sauvignon Blanc, Bamboes Bay Blanc Fume, and more. Separate wine tastings can also be booked.

When you are next looking for an adventure that includes delicious, distinctive wine in a unique, bustling setting, why not grab some friends and hit the road to find the place where the vines meet the sea.

The Wine Cellar and Tasting Room in Doring Bay Harbour is now open daily from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm.
