This is a very special wine farm to us as a family since we celebrated our wedding at this beautiful venue with all our family and friends from here and overseas. So Knorhoek will always have a special place in our heart and to us, it is the most perfect spot in Stellenbosch (from a totally sentimental perspective of course).
But we are 100% sure that you and your kids (as well as family and friends) will enjoy it just as much! You’ll arrive at this very peaceful place when you’re driving along R44 and take a turn to follow the Knorhoek sign. A little bridge or a wheelchair friendly walkway will lead you to the restaurant where you have to make a difficult choice between sitting underneath breathtaking trees that offer natural shade or on the wide and open lawn.
The lawn seating area is closer to the attached play area which features a jungle gym (also in the shade), a sandpit and the highlight: a massive inflatable jumping castle with slides. Kids can run around the wide open space, climb up a wooden stage, play lawn games and make use of the various play areas.
And here comes the best: if your kids are happy (and able) to swim and want to cool off on a hot summer day, they can even use their magical pool right in front of the restaurant. So don’t forget to bring a towel and swim suit for the little ones if they want to join in on the fun.
The pool has a shallow entrance and becomes deeper as you go along. So little children definitely need supervision, but you can choose to sit under the trees where you can keep a close eye on them.
The Knorhoek Deli menu is simple: you’ll have a choice of 3 different kind of pizzas or you go for a pizza pairing option with wine, gin or beer. For the little ones, they can also do some chips in case they are not in the mood for pizza, but don’t expect an extensive menu. Check out what they have to offer here: MENU
If you’re keen, you can also take a stroll through the vineyard and mountain trails. Knorhoek Wine Farm has four scenic trails for trail running, hiking and mountain biking in Stellenbosch—from quick and easy to tough and adventurous! The trails range from 2km to 7km in length, all with beautiful Simonsberg and False Bay views. Bring the family (including pets on a leash) for a fun day out in the winelands.
Needless to say that we always have the best time at Knorhoek Wine Farm simply because we made so many good memories there. We love it, the kids love and we will go back there until the end of time to celebrate our love and family. We hope you enjoy it just as much as we do.
