Uitkyk Wine Estate

Uitkyk Wine Estate

Set on the southwestern slopes of the Simonsberg in the greater Stellenbosch wine district, Uitkyk is a magnificent wine estate, brimming with history, delicious wines, immaculate gardens and endless views.

Established in 1712, the 600ha Uitkyk Estate boasts views as far as Table Bay and False Bay. The Georgian Manor House was filled with life and fun in days gone by, and today, Uitkyk is reliving this sense of opulence, joy and vivacity. The Manor House holds many stories, including the inspiration for Uitkyk’s first MCC. Ladies in the late 19th and early 20th centuries used their diamond rings to engrave love letters in the windowpanes of the front door, these letters are still visible today and gave rise to the romantic Glass Memoires MCC.

Estelle Lourens couldn’t be happier crafting world-class wines on one of the most venerable farms in the Stellenbosch winelands. And certainly the most elegant expression of Uitkyk is found in the farm’s flagship Cabernet Sauvignon, Carlonet: a wine that has beguiled local wine drinkers for nearly 60 years. In addition to the Carlonet, Uitkyk is also famous for its Shiraz, Pinotage, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc wines; the 10 Year Old Uitkyk Grand Reserve Estate Brandy, which is distilled and matured on the historic estate; and, Glass Memoires, the Uitkyk MCC that pays tribute to momentous occasions.
