THINGS TO DO
Guests are welcomed in our tasting room, which is really more like our living room! We offer both relaxed wine tastings and more technical tastings, depending on your preference.
Arrange in advance and we can also give cellar tours as part of the experience. We make a point of always have a family member available that can answer any of your in-depth questions.
Come hike our new 5km hiking trail, Active@Almenkerk, that takes one through fynbos, apple and pear orchards, vineyards, and over streams, up and down two “kloof’s on the Almenkerk Wine Estate. There are 7 Activity Stations along the route to add a FUN element; with signboards explaining the activity station’s exercise. Information Boards along the route explain topics of biodiversity of fauna & flora in the region, the farming activities and how they fit into sustainable farming as well as info on the Kogelberg Biosphere. Join us for a day of fun, your permit gets you a free glass of wine at our cellar after you finish the hike. What better way to end an awesome experience than trying one of your lovely wines.
