Lynx Wine Estate comprises of a boutique winery, tasting room and recently welcomed a Guesthouse onto the estate. Our wines are produced from grapes grown on the Estate and traditional methods are used during our winemaking process. These elements make our wine tasting and cellar tour a one of a kind experience. The guesthouse has been masterfully completed, encompassing old heritage and minimalistic modernism. Lynx embodies a true Franschhoek spirit that you can’t help but feel when you step onto the estate. The estate offers panoramic views of three demanding mountain ranges and the intimate tasting room overlooks our lush vineyards with a picturesque backdrop of the mighty Simonsberg Mountain.

Lynx Wine Estate exists as it is since 1997. Before we made our beautiful wines, the Estate was a table grape farm. The former owner found out very quickly that the competition with table grapes was very high and so he decided in 2000 to rip out all the table grapes and started to plant wine grapes.  In 2003 the first grapes were ready to be picked, bottled and brought to be rated, the wine immediately got 4 stars with the Platter Wine Guide.

In 2018 the German couple Manuel und Brigitte, together with their three girls, bought this wonderful wine farm. Having a hotel background and a passion for wine they also build a brand-new guest house with 9 luxurious double rooms and a small Bistro on the farm.
