In Their Words
Cape Point Vineyards History & Location
Welcome to Cape Point Vineyards, a family owned, female-driven vineyard which is uniquely located in the southern Cape Town suburb of Noordhoek on the Cape Peninsula. Here our vines nestle rather majestically against the slopes of the famous Chapman’s Peak mountain range, overlooking the nearby Atlantic Ocean just a mere 1.2 kilometres away.
Cool sea breezes along with ancient mountain soils make for a unique terroir with a late growing season that results in a world class Sauvignon Blanc that is recognised across the globe for its rich minerality, structure and tone.
Join us for a tasting of our award-winning wines, a meal in our outdoor restaurant which boasts mountain and ocean views, a picnic, or during the warmer summer months, our weekly popular Community Market. The Estate features lush lawns and a scenic dam making it the ideal destination for family and friends.

Cape Point Vineyards Wine Tasting
Join us at the Cape Point Vineyards Tasting Room and discover an evolution of Sauvignon Blanc as your senses travel with us from the fruit-forward flavours of the lower vineyard blocks to the extreme complexities and minerality of our yield higher up on the mountain.
To demonstrate the complex potential of the Sauvignon Blanc grape and to tantalize the palates of Sauvignon Blanc enthusiasts, we focus on four different styles: a traditional Sauvignon Blanc, a coastal style Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc, a Reserve Sauvignon Blanc and Isliedh, a blend with Semillon.
Wine Tasting Prices
Our Wine Flight costs R50pp and includes our Noordhoek Sauvignon Blanc, Reserve Sauvignon Blanc and Isliedh. Add on our Old Vintage Chardonnay for R30pp.
We also offer a 3 Wine and Oyster Pairing for R120pp, or guests can add individual wine pairing plates, including sample items such as Blue Cheese & Bacon Salad or Salmon Trout for R110 per plate. A Cheese Board is also available for R130.

Open during the summer season only.
With its lush lawns, beautiful dam and spectacular ocean and mountain views, Cape Point Vineyards are understandably hugely popular for weddings.
