Uitkyk Wine Estate



Situated just outside Stellenbosch, Uitkyk (pronounced “8 cake”) means lookout. The name refers to the magnificent vistas of the Cape Peninsula, False Bay and Table Mountain. Established in 1712, the estate features a unique neo-classical manor house in the Georgian style. The uncovering and restoration of the murals, which were discovered in the hallway under 15 layers of paint, took three years and was completed at the end of 1998.

With its cutting edge design elements, the modern tasting centre, which is located in the historic wine cellar, manifests the essence of Uitkyk: an Estate where traditions and trends meet.

The tasting centre is open Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 17:00, and weekends and public holidays from 10:00 to 16:00. During the summer months picnics can be ordered one day in advance and enjoyed on the lawns in front of the beautiful manor house. There is also a ‘boules’ court where one can experience this traditional French past-time.
