More about us
Accessed via the scenic Montagu Pass – winding its way up the mountains above George in the Garden Route – Herold Wines is the only winery growing, making and bottling wine in the Outeniqua Ward, Southern Cape. This family owned farm offers friendly, relaxed cellar tours, wine tastings, teas and light meals around the fireplace in a tasting room set amidst the tanks and barrels or at sun dappled tables under the vines at Herold Wines’ cellar.
Farm roads and fynbos footpaths lead to vineyards and mountain pools. Rugs in shady spots with views over the vineyards invite picnickers and wide open spaces, secret pathways and hideaways between rocks and trees create adventures for children and dogs.
The frosty winters and cool misty summers of the Outeniqua Mountains contribute to perfect cool climate conditions and a long ripening season for the 6ha of vineyard which has produced quality grapes for Herold Wines since 2003 – Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, a blend of Shiraz/Merlot/Cabernet Sauvignon, a daringly different Sauvignon Blanc/ wooded Chardonnay/Pinot Noir blend and an unusual wooded Pinot Noir dessert wine.

His favourite wine from Herold:
I just love the Pinot Noir. It probably is the soft, silky palette and powerful flavors that make this wine a favored one.

He loves fishing and traveling through Africa on back roads in a self-restored old Land Cruiser.
