I always visit Idiom whenever I holiday in Cape Town. The views panoramic views are unparalleled. We had a 3 course lunch with wine pairing which was all excellent, especially the Zinfandel with lamb. Service was excellent.

The vineyards that bear the fruit of Idiom are called “Da Capo” which means “from the beginning” or “from the Cape” in Italian, a reference to the fact that the vineyards were carefully laid out and planted on the farm for the first time in 1999.We Opened the Idiom Tasting Centre in 2016. We offer a beautiful Lunch venue with Spectacular views accompanied by great food and word class wines. We also offer various wine tasting options.
