Situated on the outskirts of the historic town of Stellenbosch, the Lanzerac Estate is a 300 year old private working wine estate in the Jonkershoek Valley. A plethora of indoor and outdoor attractions and activities for all ages are all within close proximity to the Estate. Galleries and museums, golf courses, nature trails and hiking, mountain biking, horse-riding and wildlife experiences are just some of the endless opportunities.
The hotel’s rooms, restaurants, bars, lounges and spa facilities are amidst dramatic mountain ranges, endless rows of lush vineyards and hectares of award-winning landscaped gardens. Lanzerac offers unprecedented world-class hospitality and outstanding service.
Originally named Schoongezicht, Lanzerac changed hands several times, with each owner contributing to the legacy and heritage of this unique property. While wine has been an integral part of this Estate since its beginning Lanzerac also holds significant historical value with all of the historical buildings representing distinctive examples of Cape Dutch architecture. It was also the source of the first commercial Pinotage and has since then continued to champion the variety.
Today the Estate covers an area of about 150 hectares, of these, 50 hectares consist of vineyards. Noble cultivars that include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Merlot, Pinotage, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot grace a variety of soil types and micro-climates.
