Tucked into the exquisite Knorhoek Valley north of Stellenbosch,Muratie Wine Estate,under the stewardship of Rijk Melck and his family,has been at the heart of a lot of passionate debate.This is centred largely around the desire to protect a century's old wine experience that is a magnet for wine lovers around the world.The farm dates back to 1685 when it was granted by Governor Simon van der Stel

We enjoyed our port tasting with chocolates, made purchases but then had a wonderful time outside touring the grounds and taking pictures throughout the art gallery and chicken yard! A total place to relax while having a delightful beverage!
