Drink, eat & be merry!


As the industry is up and coming in Kwa-Zulu Natal we are thrilled to be part of the trailblazing pioneers in this great adventure of winemaking. As Natal is not typically known for the production of wine, we are on the journey to discover the potential this area has, and the results thus far speak volumes. 

Being one of three certified wine farms in the province, we have the vision of creating a new wine route – expanding with our country’s internationally competitive wines and industry with a new, bold, and fresh artistic iteration.



How does the wine tasting work?

Aiming to make the experience a memorable one for our guests, you will arrive gently greeted by the smell of the country, and if you walk into our cellar the classic scent of oak barrels. You will be presented with 100% estate wines which have all been grown on the farm, and many of the vineyards can be seen if seated outside in the picturesque scenery.

You will have the opportunity to do a tasting of four wines – or sit back and order a bottle of your favourite. 


Try a selection of four wine made on our Estate.


Wine sales

As Highgate Wine Estate is still a developing farm, we focus our wine sales in the tasting room – this way, you will find yourself purchasing a wine where you have experienced the nature of its origin. As we do have limited bottles & are in a very unique area, you will be able to buy a wine unlike any other, and one not many will have the opportunity to own




Feeling hungry? Maybe you need to soak up all of that wine with some food?

Well, we’ve got you covered! We have a number of food options available. Such as tapas, cheese boards, and wholesome meals at the restuarant – all go magnificently with our wines.
