Wine Tasting Experience
"It's the smooth bouquet that counts - drink Muratie wines made from the finest grapes, ripened in the South African sun. Every drop in your glass is full of flavour and strength, it gladdens the heart and loosens the tongue. It is the strength of a pure wine that enables you to face care and trouble with a lighter heart and so quickly dissipate that feeling of depression. In this manner it incidentally fortifies the body against infections and disease."
Muratie is as old as history itself, lying at the foot of the Simonsberg with a view of Table Mountain, guarded over by ancient oak trees you will find this old 'ruin' a treasure to be enjoyed. The old fermentation tanks in the cellar with their tartaric encrusted walls, old carpets, wooden furniture and original art is where you will enjoy honest home food, good wine and great company.
Originally used as an art studio by renowned Stellenbosch painter and late farm owner George Paul Canitz, the Muratie Guest Cottage boasts a classic combination of Old World charm, Bohemian aesthetics and exceptional comfort. Wake up to spectacular views of the Simonsberg mountain range, taste Muratie’s award winning wines and experience an estate built on 300 years of art and tradition inspired by Cape viticulture.
Mountain Biking and Trail Running
Ride through the Simonsberg Trail system that has magnificent singletracks that are easy enough for beginners to try, but tricky enough for intermediate & experienced riders to have some playtime! Nightrides are great and fun too, especially with wine, soup and fresh farm bread enjoyed together afterwards.
