12 June, 2019 | Hazendal was one of the first farms to produce wine in the Stellenbosch region, so it’s fitting that the Wine Tasting Lounge is in the estate’s original cellar.
While the cellar dates back to 1870, the space has been reimagined and blends traditional and contemporary design to create the perfect environment for swirling, tasting and talking wine. Winemaker and cellar master Clarise Sciocatti-Langeveldt are raking in the accolades with her Chardonnay 2017 and Sauvignon Blanc/Sémillon 2017 (scoring 90 and 92, out of 100, respectively, from critic Christian Eedes).
In a tribute to its history and visionary founder, Hazendal has created an award-winning wine range, Christoffel Hazenwinkel, with delightfully whimsical labels, which received a gold award at the Wine Label Design Awards in 2017.
