The GP Canitz Guest Cottage

Muratie Wine Estate is situated against the Simonsberg Mountain range, just 10 km outside Stellenbosch. The rustic cottage is centrally located on this historic farm and was originally the art studio of renowned painter, and previous owner, George Paul Canitz. It boasts a classic combination of old world charm and Bohemian aesthetics.

Experience the hustle & bustle of farm life, appreciate the spectacular views of the Simonsberg mountain range, or explore the estate’s hiking- and MTB trails. Stepping out your door, you will find yourself on the doorstep of our restaurant’s terrace and historic tasting room. With visitors from all over the world the days possess a hum of activity, which subsides towards the evenings, allowing you to enjoy the tranquil sunsets.

Our Farm Kitchen offers breakfast and lunch (Wednesdays – Sundays) on the terrace or inside the old cellar. Taking a stroll about the property, you may come across the MOK art gallery where you may peruse the art on display or wonder over to the paddock to visit our donkey and alpacas.

Join us in the tasting room to taste some of our award-winning wines and allow our staff to elaborate on the rich history of Muratie Wine Farm.
