  • The friendly and down-to-earth owner and his lovely wife welcome you with open arms and warm hospitality to their wine tasting. Enjoy a glass of their smooth Haut Espoir red blend and take a leasurely stroll to watch the moon rise. A rich and wonderful experience for the entire family. Wear comfortable shoes for the full moon walk. I will strongly recommend to anybody who loves wine and the beautiful outdoors! Thank you Haut Espoir, I will be back again.
  • Lovely views and yummy wines! Thei shiraz rose and their 2017 chardonnay is really good, a must to taste when visiting! Quite enjoyed the fireplace inside which made it quite cosy and comforting! Cannot wait to see what it's like when the restaurant opens! Siyanda was a great host!
