Knorhoek Wine Estate

Well known for its award winning wines, beautiful estate, perfect wedding venue and Towerbosch Restaurant and Function venue

Knorhoek, situated on the slopes of the Simonsberg in Stellenbosch, has been in the Van Niekerk family for 5 generations. After originally making bulk wines for bigger companies, we launched our first estate wines in 1997. The farm with its diverse topographical aspects, is ideal for the cultivation of both red and white varietes.

Our current range includes our flagship Pantère – a red blend of noble cultivars. The rest consists of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinotage, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc. Also very popular are our easy-drinking Two Cubs white and red blends.

Situated in peaceful gardens, with a tempting rock pool and rustic outdoor lapa, the 3-star guesthouse spoils guests with traditional Cape hospitality and fine food. Knorhoek is a popular venue for weddings, conferences and other functions.
