Private Dining


Exclusive Private Wine & Food experiences

During the nationwide lockdown to help stop the spread of Covid-19, we offer exclusive private (and safe) wine & food experiences by appointment in our stylish wine lounge, while our Bistro and Gourmet Restaurant remains closed.

Connected directly to the winery, the trendy Wine lounge features an open fireplace and heaps of ambience. Picture-perfect for a great wine meal! If the weather allows, the sweeping veranda with views over the beautiful garden and vineyard is a wonderful option. Our private chef will prepare a sumptuous 5-course menu for you. Simple, elegant food based on the natural abundance of our region and our wine ambassador will match each course with one of Hans’ outstanding wines. A must do indulgence!

Just to have mentioned it, you may add a bottle from Hans & Therese’ private walk in wine cellar, a curated wine library with close to 500 of the world’s finest wines to your meal.
