Tasting Shed

Join the team at the Tasting Shed, on the Bartinney Estate. Nestled in the striking Banhoek valley, the lovingly renovated, double-aspect space is draped with native fynbos plants from the farm nursery, and a stunning chandelier crafted from old vines. Relax on the upstairs terrace,which enjoys unrivalled panoramic views over the valley and Simonsberg.

On Fridays we are open late, so you can sip wine and watch as Simonsberg and the valley become veiled in pink light as the sun sets. The Tasting Shed is home to our much-loved ‘Under the Stars’ and ‘Under the Roof’ live acoustic music evenings, where like-minded wine lovers celebrate the Friday ‘wine down’ in true style. Additionally, watch out for the popular ‘Vinyl Views’ nights. Our resident DJ plays an awesome selection of catchy tunes from his enviably large record collection.

Estate Wine Tastings – settle in and enjoy (tastings offered until 5pm on Fridays):

  • Bartinney Estate wine tasting: R50 per person, for three wines (cost waived with a wine purchase of R150 or more).
  • Bartinney Wine & Fynbos experience: R75 per person- an innovative tasting of the three estate wines, alongside native fynbos grown on the farm. The multi-sensory tasting changes your perceptions of the wines and highlights our ongoing commitment to conserving our unique Cape biodiversity.Booking for this tasting experience is essential at tastingshed@bartinney.co.za .

Alternatively, relax, take in the view and sip a glass or two of wine on the terrace. To accompany the wine we have a selection of locally sourced snacks, including cheese and charcuterie platters and delicious biltong.
