Revelling in the romance of the Winelands: Lanzerac

Rolling green hills, flourishing vineyards, and sprawling mountain ranges, the Cape Winelands are as picturesque as they are overflowing with opportunity for equal parts adventure and relaxation. Whether you’re sipping on a special vintage during a wine tasting experience or flying across the lush terrain on an e-bike, there’s something special in store for everyone – especially if you intend to use Lanzerac Wine Estate as your base! 

The beauty 

Cushioned in the heart of the Winelands, Lanzerac is set on a 17th-century historical treasure, flanking the breath-taking Jonkershoek Valley. Think wide-open spaces, shady ancient oak trees, and refreshing mountain air, all complemented by traditional Cape-Dutch architecture and intricate finishing touches in each and every one of the hotel’s beautiful rooms.  

The food 

Lanzerac is one of the wine estates in Stellenbosch boasting a broad array of opportunities to make the most of fine wining and dining in many different forms. Lanzerac Deli is a must for homemade favourites, perfectly brewed coffee, and artisanal produce. The Manor Kitchen is fantastic for something a little more formal, and well-known for its timeless afternoon tea. Taphuis is celebrated for its flavoursome dishes with a South African twist, all re-imagined by Head Chef Stephan Fraser. Finally, Craven Lounge is the perfect spot for a laid-back drink and a tapas menu chockfull of delicacies made for sharing with loved ones.  

The wine  

Lanzerac Wine Estate is where the world’s first Pinotage was bottled and is where many exquisite wines have been nurtured and bottled ever since. The estate’s legendary Premium range comprises award-winning single varietals ideal for any occasion, while the Heritage range boasts limited release flagship wines honouring some of the key role players in the Estate’s heritage. The Keldermeester Versameling is a relatively new addition and features Cellar Master, Wynand Lategan’s limited release artisanal wines. 

The spa 

Lanzerac Spa cradles the weary in the most beautiful setting for a matchless wellness experience, allowing guests to emerge refreshed and invigorated. Along with a variety of treatments on offer, the spa is also home to a Neoqui Mediq cocoon room, a fitness room, two Rasul chambers, a sauna, hot tub, indoor heated pool, mist rooms, and a steam room.  

For everything, one could ever look forward to while on a retreat in the Winelands, Lanzerac is always sure to deliver.
