The Small Guide: Wonderfontein Wine Estate

You’ll feel calm steal over you as soon as you enter this gracious, old world wine estate. Dating back to 1884, Wonderfontein has been home to five generations of the Marais family. Try the range of wines and Cap Classique, which includes traditional Robertson Muscadels as well as a brandy. Walk in the gardens, dream under a tree—it’s all wonderful at Wonderfontein.

The Small Experience

Join Henk and Monica van Niekerk on the stoep of their home—set in the historic Wonderfontein. Here, with views of vineyards, you’ll drift away with glasses of the Paul Réne MCC. Soon your eyes may alight on the vintage bikes resting against the stoep—an invitation for you, and everyone you’re with, to hop on cruise through the vineyard on two wheels. Glass in-hand, if you like.

The Small Things

It’s a family affair. While husband Henk is responsible for making the bubbly, Monica is the eye behind the beautiful label design and packaging of Paul Réne Cap Classique.
