Kon die wyne net by die markie proe – die proe-lokaal was toe. Was steeds ‘n lekker ervaring. Het van die “Martha” gehou.

Very very friendly crowd, had nice braai and wine tasting with them. Also we were able to visit saturday morning market, it was small but very good atmosphere.

Because it was a Saturday morning, tasting took place in the market square behind the tasting room. Not the greatest of venues if you are serious about getting all the info about their wines. Nice selection of wines.

We went on a Saturday, so the cellar door was closed. However you can try the wines at the Saturday market they were holding on their premises. The market is very cute, be sure to visit it. As for the wines, I liked the No.7 Sauvignon Balnc. However, I found the reds a bit too robust and dry for my liking. You can see my full review on my wine blog:

Hierdie wynplaas se kleinboet en SB no 5 staan uit. Wat n uitstekende ontwikkeling van ‘n brand

Pleasantly surprised with the overall quality of this unknown, to me at least, winery. I now have a regular supply of the Kleinboet working its way through my wine rack at home.

Revisited and very disappointed with the quality of the tasting experience. Wines are great. Given a friendly greeting, we asked to taste the whole portfolio. We were told that even though we belong to their wine club, we still had to pay for the honour (?) of tasting the Bartho and No5 Sauvignon Blanc. Why do I bother to fill in forms when I get no benefit from belonging to the wine club. On top of this irritation, we were made to wait ages between pours, the information passed on about the wines were non existent and the amount poured so little that I hardly had a mouth full. This is not how you keep your loyal customers happy. FAIL.

I love this farm – from their amazing reds to their fantastic marketing communications. They’re always worth a visit and they often have special offers from the tasting room, or via their newsletters. The Swartskaap is well worth the splurge, and their 1855 Posmeester is a good value drinking red – plus I adore the Bloos (probably my favourite Rose and goes brilliantly with even a curry!)

I love the original names they have for their wines. The wines are expensive but very good. The Swartskaap was the first on I fell in love with, and the rest did not disappoint. Go on a Saturday when they have the farmers market in the quad behind the tasting room

Ilse-Marie has been wonderful hostess. She has made us feel very welcome. This has been a memorable experience. All the Sauvignons Blanc are unique and fantastic examples of the variety. I have rated the “Swartskaap” as the best Cabernet Franc in the country, and now having tasting it at the winery, it has confirmed my rating.

Very modern tasting facilities and well informed staff. Ask for the story behind the names of the wines. The Swartskaap is my personal favourite (the name and the wine) but try the Bartho it’s different from the usual Sauvignon Blanc fare.

Excellent wines that are very cleverly marketed. Enjoy the modern tasting room with the Wine Sense style machines. The Swartskaap really quite remarkable and of course the Martha, Bartho and Arnoldus. Bartho Eksteen is sold as the Sauvignon King of SA, but I think his reds are actually better. Enjoy the dash of Nouvelle in the Bartho, making the green flavour spectrum incredibly broad.

I recommend you join the wine club, the wines are fantastic and selling out fast. Glad we have a supply of Bloos and the Nr 5 is fabulous. The Sat morning markets an enjoyable way to spend the morning whether for breakfast or lunch – our favourite thing to do. We are always made to feel so welcome when we go there. Well done to all involved.

Dié oorspronklike benaming vir die dorp Hermanus is ‘n mondvol. Net soos die 1855 Boeremark. Diè mark is neffens die Hemel en Aarde sentrum, ‘n inisiatief van die Hermanus Pietersfontein Wynlandgoed. ‘n Moderne mark, opgedollie in ‘n plaasgeurtjie en verpak en bedien met styl. Sommer met die intrapslag in die sement ‘arena’, word daar ingesit op ‘n hoë noot: bosse proteas te koop op ‘n eerlikheidsbasis – koop jou blomme en gooi jou munte in die kissie. Die stalletjie eienaars is uitgedos as voëls van dieselfde kleur – almal in enerse voorskote en met ‘n hoogs aansteeklike skoot gasvryheid beman.

Wyn word geproe, olywe en Tant Annie se gebak bespreek, en tou gestaan vir die moerkoffie.
Batho Eksteen is onbeskaamd Afrikaans en wyn met name soos Kleinboet, Swartskaap en Bloos, rol rond en ryk op die tong. Hetsy wit of rooi, hier is iets vir almal se smaak en sak. Die Arnoldus, Die Martha en Die Bartho is die ernstiger kant van die wynfamilie – die vele akkolades getuig daarvan. Bartho se pure-plaas wyne sal selfs die mees stoïese wynsnob verras.

Die oom wat langs my by die tafel sit, skroef sy marmelade oop en geniet dit saam met sy ciabatta brood en ander markware. Sy tafelgenoot is paraat het selfs haar eie piekniekstel gebring. Ons knibbel aan sjokelade en verkas dan weer terug na ons naweekwerf toe.
