Wine Package

3 Nights

The Experience

Sip on a fruity glass of Sauvignon Blanc as our Executive Chef explains why he’s paired it so precisely with a local cheese. Listen to our sommelier as he tells you why a particular vintage tastes just as sun-kissed as it does. Soak up the beauty of a mountain view as you hear from a wine-maker on this year’s vintage. Our wine package is a delicious journey into the wines of this area, giving you ample chances to savour, taste and connect.

What's new at Grootbos - New Garden Lodge and Florilegium

The last year has been a busy one at Grootbos. We rebuilt our beloved Garden Lodge entirely and re-opened it in April 2022. We also officially launched the Grootbos Florilegium - Africa's first contemporary florilegium - which is a collection of botanical illustrations created by local and international artists, depicting the charismatic plants found on our reserve and the surrounding regions.
