Lunches & Picnics

Lunches are served at tables in our courtyard garden and inside our tasting room. We use seasonal, locally-sourced ingredients to create dishes that complement our estate wines

Our picnics are packed in individual wooden boxes to be enjoyed in our beautiful and spacious picnic garden. Sit at a table under the trees, or relax on a picnic blanket with large cushions.

Please note our picnics are currently out of season, but will return later in the year.

And More

The farm is rich in birdlife.

There’s really no more wonderful sound than the morning or evening songs of the birds that inhabit this area.

From peacocks to wagtails to spotted owls and hoopoes, this is the right place for a glass of wine and a bird song.


Climate change is a reality and for the Western Cape in South Africa this means temperatures are increasing and rainfall is decreasing. We have to plan and adapt now to ensure the longevity of our estate, its people and our wines.

In alignment with the Mackenzie family, owners of the estate since 1986, our Cellarmaster, Carl Schultz, who has long been a passionate advocate of working with nature, has overseen many of the projects implemented to harness and protect the natural resources since he joined Hartenberg in 1994. 

Hartenberg’s holistic approach encompasses all aspects of the farm, including everyone who lives and works here.
