Experience Perfection

Biltong Pairing

1. Guinea Fowl White 2019

The Saxenburg Guinea Fowl Chenin Blanc 2019 is made to be fresh and fruit-forward. You will find an alluring array of tropical fruit, peach and pear aromas on the nose. These follow through to the palate and is beautifully balanced by a fresh, green apple-like acidity.

Paired with Beef Droewors.

2. Saxenburg Sauvignon Blanc 2019

The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2019 shows lovely flavours like granadilla, grapefruit, pears, with hints of capsicum and mineral flavours. Well-structured on the palate, with all the flavours prominent. The acidity is supporting the mouthfeel, with a long lingering aftertaste.

3. Guinea Fowl Red 2017

The Saxenburg Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 has typical mulberry, cassis and blackberry aromas, with hints of cigar box.

The Hiding Place

A cozy refuge

Hidden from the activity and distractions of the estate, The Hiding Place offers a tranquil escape to those wishing to enjoy a quiet read or a secluded place to browse the internet (free wi-fi) with a peaceful glass of wine. The name was inspired by a true account of two Boer prisoners of war who arrived at the homestead as Georg Jacob de Villiers, the owner of Saxenburg at the time, was about to conclude evening prayers. He invited them in before they had a time to establish his political affiliations. These were soon revealed when, during his prayer he interceded fervently for the cause of the Boers, including three of his brothers fighting for the cause.

Safari Tastings

A unique tasting experience

During the summer months, Safari Tastings offer guests a unique experience of sampling our wines out in the open, free from the confines of a room. Enjoy our vintages from a platform in the game camp where zebra, antelope and other game species roam. The tastings are combined with an informative talk about the estate and the South African wine industry as a whole.
