“Grown, made and bottled in low quantities with great pride on the Wildekrans Estate”
Wildekrans Wine Estate is a picturesque 1 000 hectare estate tucked away in the beautiful Botrivier Valley. What is now an estate that produces international award-winning wines, Wildekrans
was originally established as a mixed farming operation. It was soon realised that the cool terroir of this picturesque farm in the Botrivier Valley, had all the key components to produce grapes of the highest quality expressions.
The winemaking process, similarly, adheres to principles of low intervention with a focus on capturing and retaining the essence of the vine and its terroir. The Wildekrans winemaking philosophy is based on the premise that great wines begin in the vineyard. Consequently, infinite care is taken to match varietals to suitable soil types. The vines are thereafter nurtured to produce low yielding crops of pronounced structure and fruit intensity. The estate is planted to around 70 hectares of red and white varietals with future plantings set to enrich and balance the portfolio.
Come & Stay
Wildekrans offers warm hospitality, country accommodation, friendly, attentive service and the finest in food and wines. Among its many features are breath-taking views and a tranquil atmosphere.
Situated just over 70km from Cape Town International Airport and 30km from Hermanus, Wildekrans is the ideal base for exploring the picturesque Overberg region and the many attractions of the neighbouring towns. For those wanting a complete escape, there’s as much, or as little to do on the estate as you please, without having to venture out at all.
Accommodation consists of 9 luxurious cottages (8 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 3 bedroom) situated between a vineyard and a plum orchard on the banks of the Botrivier with the most beautiful mountain views. It is here that guests can enjoy some quality time with friends and family.
Our destination restaurant for a country gourmet experience is a ‘go-to’ for special occasions, beautiful food, and relaxed family dining.
The Restaurant features contemporary dining and elegant service, with a menu showcasing a true Overberg food experience of taste driven signature dishes using fresh seasonal ingredients, along with a selection of casual classic dishes for easy family-dining. Guests may choose to dine on the terrace, which offers a spectacular setting and memorable ambience, or enjoy the beautiful decor inside with a fascinating view of the kitchen and pass.
Reservations are strongly recommended, as tables are limited. Kindly note that no table is guaranteed for guests staying in our cottages. Guests are kindly requested to make a reservation.
