After the success and brilliant feedback of our last wine tasting evening here at The Tackroom, where we sampled some of the finest in Northern Italian wines and inspired dishes, we will be travelling to South Africa to the beautiful region of Stellenbosh, home of the well known Hoopenburg Vineyard.


Hoopenburg Wines is a quality-driven boutique wine farm situated in the Greater Simonsberg Ward of Stellenbosch, one of the Cape’s prime wine-growing areas, and home to three wine ranges: the top-end Integer label, the Hoopenburg estate range – and the easy – drinking Guru wines. Virtually encircled by the majestic Simonsberg mountain range, and commanding an unobstructed view of Table Mountain, the vineyards, charming homestead and tasting centre at Hoopenburg are blessed with an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity.

Hoopenburg, owned by the Schmitz family from Germany, is unique in that it is the only wine estate in South Africa where 100% of the vineyard comprises bush vines. Being planted to bush vines, their vineyards are naturally controlled to have yields of below 6 tons per hectare. Nourished by pure underground water, their unique dry-land bush-vine vineyards produce grapes of exceptional taste and flavour. All of the grapes are hand-picked and sorted so that they extract only the best juice, and in the cellar the aim is to capture and enhance the grapes’ natural potential. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks or in open casks after which the wine is aged in French oak barrels.
