We discover the breath-taking Banghoek Valley on a wine tasting and pairing, luxury escape to The Homestead at Oldenburg Vineyards


Up in the Banghoek Valley between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, lies The Homestead at Oldenburg Vineyards. An independent family run boutique winery aiming to make some of the finest and most respected wines. To share all this majesty with visitors, the family transformed the original farm homestead into a luxury guest villa managed by Annine Van Reenen.

This time of year, evening light lasts long and the sun rises early. Perfect for full days of visiting numerous internationally recognised restaurants and wineries in every direction.
