Lanzerac – So Close You Can Taste It


The Winelands is spoilt for choice when it comes to enjoying the finest that local produce has to offer. To have staying power in the hotel and food & beverage landscape, requires constant reinvention and a keen eye for changing tastes among both locals and travellers. Lanzerac bears testimony to the art of reinvention, ensuring guests return time after time. Birthed around the same time as the town of Stellenbosch itself, the hotel is located on a wine estate at the gateway to the magnificent Jonkershoek Valley and epitomizes all that is finest about gracious living and feasting.

Lanzerac has, over the years, established itself as one of Stellenbosch’s top gourmet destinations. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Manor Kitchen, the heart of Lanzerac hospitality that is presided over by Executive Chef Stephen Fraser.

The Manor Kitchen is a space brimming with grandeur, and a whimsical touch in décor. Luxuriating in a long breakfast, befittingly with Cap Classique and all the other spoils, or joining for a more refined dinner, it is truly a space to reimagine yourself. And to showcase the skills of the team at hand, one can also join for the seven-course set menu that is served every Friday and Saturday night.

Time-old traditions are engrained in Lanzerac and Sunday lunch with family and friends is no exception. A leisurely afternoon drinking excellent wine and savouring a superb lunch from their a-la-carte menu is sure to have something for everyone’s taste.

For the less formally inclined visit Taphuis. Whether inside at the fire in Winter or on the long, shaded veranda in Summer, the gourmet pub-style menu offers sharing plates and light meals in a relaxed environment overflowing with beautiful country charm.

So, if you’re searching for a relaxed, yet distinctive, lunch or dinner destination to celebrate the advent of Summer, be assured of being whisked away to a gourmet paradise.
