Cape Point Vineyards: Sushi + Sauvignon Blanc + Spectacular Sunsets

Cape Point Vineyards: Sushi + Sauvignon Blanc + Spectacular Sunsets

A family-friendly Noordhoek gem with loads going for it.

Near the easy-breezy seaside village of Noordhoek, against the majestic Chapman’s Peak mountain range, is Cape Point Vineyards, a wine estate whose spectacular views are impressive even by Cape Town standards. Its location makes it the only wine estate on the Cape Peninsula that offers 360-degree views of mountains, fynbos, vineyards and dazzling sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean.

Taking full advantage of its scenic setting, the award-winning winery offers many attractions that make the journey to Noordhoek (an experience in itself) well worth the drive. Here are six reasons to visit Cape Point Vineyards.

1. Cape Point Vineyards Restaurant

Cape Point Vineyards: Restaurant View

If you prize a restaurant’s setting as a crucial element in the overall dining experience, you’ll be blown away by Cape Point Vineyards Restaurant. On warm days, guests flock to the deck, while children run free on the estate’s expansive lawns but in winter, sitting beside the cosy indoor fireplace is where you want to be.

There’s also a new chef on the scene. Chad Blows’ seasonally driven à la carte menu features “the best locally and sustainably sourced seafood and game dishes”, accompanied by an extensive winelist that includes Cape Point Vineyards’ own range.

Mouth-watering starters include Franschhoek salmon trout and cheese soufflé while mains feature seafood butter curry, slow-cooked Karoo lamb and Nero vegan risotto.
Good to know Until end-September, the restaurant is running a two-course weekday lunch special, accompanied with a glass of pinotage. Booking is essential and costs R220 per person.
Opening times Wednesday – Sunday, 12pm – 3pm

There’s a jungle gym for the little ones to entertain themselves.
Good to know The winter special lunch platter includes kreefstert (lobster) samoosas, fried chokka, fish tacos and a complimentary side, accompanied by a bottle of Cape Point sauvignon blanc for R450 for two people.

3. Wine and Climb

To make the most of the stunning setting, why not take an invigorating hike through the vineyards, with four wine stops along the way? The 4.5-kilometre hike begins at the estate’s restaurant, passes through the olive grove, before entering the vineyards (unique for their proximity to the ocean).

Each of the four wine-tasting stops showcases the qualities of the particular vineyard block it’s in. Guests will be able to sample a variety of flavours, enjoying breathtaking views all the way.

  • Under 18s can join for free, but alcohol won’t be served to them.
