Pinotage Masterclass by Pieter de Waal

With the expertise that comes with nine generations of harvesting, none other than owner Pieter de Waal will guide you through the tasting notes of South Africa’s only indigenous grape variety.

Centred on a Cape Dutch homestead dating to 1791, the neatly-pruned rows of vines at De Waal’s winery lie in Stellenbosch’s attractive Kloof Valley.

Your time in the dedicated tasting room will culminate with the chance to sample De Waal’s magnum opus Top of the Hill vintages, produced from the oldest pinotage vineyard block in the world.
