A gem of a place. Each wine quite delicious. Had a super personalised tasting in a laid back but stylish environment. Loved it!

What a lovely tasting experience! Quoin Rock have a stylish and modern cellar and tasting room, with beautiful views from their outdoor deck, and yet are strangely quiet over a busy festive season. Their wines are excellent and we couldn’t leave without a few bottles, and we also took advantage of the cheese platter which was surprisingly generous. Service was slow, but in a very pleasant way that invited quietly lingering over a beautiful afternoon in a magnificent setting. Well worth the visit, and I heartily recommend to anyone and everyone!

We had an evening tasting in the underground lair- what a setting! Something out of a medieval King Authur period drama. The staff are keen to talk one through the wines. Being a Cab Franc fan, I really liked the Mendi.

Great service, and the white wines are truly one of the best in the area

An undiscovered gem!
I’ve been a fan of Quin Rock for some years now, tucked neatly between the ever-popular Delheim, Muratie and Knorhoek, I suspect they don’t enjoy the traffic they deserve.
The setting is beautiful; and the building is modern and lush, but not clinical or cold.
The views are of the best among the farms that are not high up on the slopes, instead you sit at the foot of Simonsberg, with stunning views up.

They have interesting wines too. A wooded Sauvignon/Viognier blend that excites, being something different. An absolutely superb Syrah, with a beatiful label: a painting by William Kentridge. The Syrah is velvety and smooth, with rich, warm dessert spice characteristics- cinnamon, cloves and christams cake. They also do a fine MCC, with grapes grown in the cool Elim region, which comes through in the crisp and fresh palate.

The staff are friendly and knowlegable.
An all-round winner, and a lovely visit every time.

Craig was our host with the most at this stop, the most info, the most interesting facts and the most interesting skinner of and about the local industry. This was more of a lunch stop than a wine tasting stop and we got to try their sushi which was as good, if not better, than some of the best sushi I have tried in town. This is a truly awesome place which ‘rocks’ with character and even though you’re nowhere close to the ocean, it does feel like you’re sitting at some zuush restaurant close by, but instead of the ocean, the splendid valley below overlooked by intimidating mountains.

We had some truly delicious sushi here on Sunday before the Killers concert. A great treat and not even that expensive. Our bill came to only R330 for 3 people and we had platters on platters of sushi.

We also tried their MCC which is the first MCC from the Cape Agulhas area. My favourite out of the bunch was the William Kentridge Syrah 2005 @R145. Our host Craig Smithers was a darling and made our time there an absolute bliss.

What a great way to spend a summer afternoon! Will go back any-day!

Visited both farms the one in Elim and the one in Stellenbosch. thier blends show that yes with a little magic the two climates can make for some awesome wines.
Think the MCC was a bit premature but shows a lot of promise.

Quoin Rock is a beautiful Wine Estate with a lovely tasting room. The interior is a bit “Biggie Best”, which I am not a fan of, but in this case I’ll make an exception. I absolutely loved the place. The view was absolutely breathtaking.

Our host was very friendly and I really enjoyed the tasting. The tasting room created a homely atmosphere and I imagined it to be my living room….if only! I had such a good time, that I misplaced the pictures that I took that day……all the more reason for a re-visit.

Beautiful setting and cheese platters available. Very informative. E mailed them a few days bfore and arranged a cellar tour, which was good. Memorable wines were their MCC Cape Algulhas – superb and up there with French champagne for me and their Sauvignon Blanc from Cape Algulhas
