Kanonkop Wine Estate

Kanonkop Wine Estate Claimed

Average Reviews


Kanonkop Wine Estate is situated in Stellenbosch, the premium red wine region of South Africa’s Western Cape Province.

To many, Kanonkop is considered to be the South African equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth. For others, Kanonkop is not just a wine estate.

It is a place of natural beauty where hospitality, family values, tradition, history and interesting characters are as integral to our ability to create magnificent wines as the ancient decomposed granite soils, the cool air from the Atlantic Ocean and the old dry land vineyards.

Tasting Room Details & Offerings

The tasting venue is a modern facility where, besides taking the opportunity to sample and purchase Kanonkop wines, you can also watch a video about growing vines and making wine on our farm.
Portraits remind you of the iconic figures: JW Sauer, Paul Sauer, Mary Krige and Jannie Krige.
There is also a line of bottles of Paul Sauer ranging from the standard 750 millilitres to the 18-litre Mandelazar (as it is known on Kanonkop). If you are interested in geography and geology, the display showcasing the various types of soil found on the farm is worth examining. The bronze bust of Paul Sauer lends a sense of gravitas to the venue.
We also have a gift shop with a selection of clothing, art and souvenirs available for purchase.
