On the slopes of Bottelary Hills bordering Stellenbosch, we are a family estate where nature provides the perfect backdrop to grow, produce and share award-winning wines.

Summer at Hartenberg brings lunches on the terrace or picnics on the lawns followed by buoyant games of boule. Winter invites you to intimate fireside lunches and sumptuous reds, smoky charcuterie and olives, and sensorial cellar tours.

Our Wetland Conservation Area, alongside the vineyards, makes for a beautiful setting for walks and shared family fun.

A beautiful small estate with a small garden restaurant where you taste their wines accompanied (if desired) with a nice meal. Delicious experience, nice and quiet.

This wine tasting focused on the basics: they poured a few (generous) glasses, and rattled off statistics (X number of months in Y kinds of barrels). The wines themselves are quite tasty--they specialize in Shiraz, and we very much liked the Cabernet--but we didn't learn much about wine making, and didn't have much of an experience. Based on visits to... More

We visited early on a Saturday morning with a group of about 7. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tasting which was presented excellently by Themba. Would definitely recommended sitting outside and enjoying the experience to anyone in the area.

On a weekday afternoon in the winter, it was not crowded and we enjoyed the full attention of the sommelier. During our tasting of 5 wines, we enjoyed Reisling, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Shiraz, and a Rose' - and received... More

Our Swiss friend invited my wife and I and another couple for a picnic last Sunday. The wind was quite strong but we, nevertheless, had a great time sitting under the trees. I have had lunch/ a picnic here on several occasions and they have never disappointed. The welcome was warm and the service was very good. The picnic (wooden)... More

We had a wonderful Sunday picnic. The price included a bottle of wine. Value for money. The brownies are to die for. 😊👍
