The Best Wine Farms Near Gansbaai

Posted on Tue August 3, 2021.

If you are planning on exploring the Overberg region this winter or are staying in our luxury Gansbaai accommodation nestled in De Kelders, then a day of wine tasting, at some of the best wine farms near Gansbaai, on a chilly day is just the ticket.

Wake up in 65onCliff to a stunning view of Walker Bay, enjoy a delicious hot breakfast then head out for a day of exploring the Overberg Winelands.

Make your first stop at Farm 215 a private nature reserve where you can overlook the beautiful vineyards of Lomond. Farm 215 offers tastings of the stunning Lomond Wines where you can savour the notes of wood spice and berries in the syrah and the smokey, plummy flavours of the Merlot. They also produce Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz, Semillon, Nouvelle, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir and a Viognier.

Then take a leisurely drive to Stanford Hills Estate, just outside of Stanford and only 22 km’s from our sea view accommodation in Gansbaai. This boutique wine estate produces an award winning Pinotage that has an earthy cherry and lavender flavour, and also produce a wonderful Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. And while there you can enjoy the stunning array of proteas, the two rose gardens and the 15 year old olive groves.
