Celebrated Helderberg wine estate Waterkloof has drawn back the curtains on the latest creation in its Circumstance range for premier, site-specific wines to reveal the Cape Coral 2019 Mourvèdre Rosé. For winemaker Nadia Barnard-Langenegger, the release is especially poignant – it marks her 10th anniversary harvest at Waterkloof.

The sense of occasion started as soon as we entered the estate, driving through rolling vineyards towards the Hottentots-Holland Mountains, with the restaurant perched high up on a ridge on our left, like a fort.


This holiday season, we’re getting into the spirit of giving and offering one very lucky winner the chance to take home 12 bottles of our newly-released Seriously Cool Cinsault 2012.


Waterkloof Restaurant, the sky-scraping Winelands eatery on the outskirts of Somerset West, ticks all the right boxes when it comes to fine dining with a view and its latest string of impressive accolades serves up a tantalising testimony.


Waterkloof Estate, the arresting ‘cellar in the sky’ outside Somerset West, is serious when it comes to pure, unadulterated wines and it shows in its latest triumph – Seriously Cool Cinsault 2012 – a richly perfumed, elegant red wine to be enjoyed slightly chilled.


In a first for the South African hospitality industry, last week saw the unveiling of the Taj-First Growths Wine List: a series of wines considered to be the most sought-after in the world that are now available for enjoyment by guests at the Taj Cape Town.


On Wednesday, 30 October, the fourth annual Stellenbosch at Summer Place extravaganza hosted by Sanlam Private Investments (SPI) – a flawless pairing of wines, food, art, music and fashion from the country’s premier wine destination – will beguile Jozi socialites with more opulence and taste than ever before.


Waterkloof, the beautifully appointed wine estate ‘in the sky’ on the outskirts of Somerset West, will tantalise all the senses and more, when it kicks off the 2013 Helderberg Wine Festival in elevated style with a Six Senses Evening of sublime tastes unique to the area on Thursday, 14 November.


We are absolutely delighted to announce that The Restaurant at Waterkloof has won its first American Express® Platinum Fine Dining Award!
