At Olive Garden you can indulge in the Italian art of 'far-niente' or 'doing nothing'.

But this is not all. Enjoy the hot hydro-jet jacuzzi in the garden, the sparkling pool and the lazy hammock. There are other activities too, such as exploring the mountain trails and discovering the Robertson wine estates. They're all right on our doorstep, as well as the romantic boat cruise on the Breede River.

Olive Garden Country Lodge offers 8 luxury rooms, set among evergreen olive trees in the foothills of the Kranskop Mountains. Luxury Bohemian Afro-chic in style, with verandahs that overlook the Klaasvoogds Valley and surrounding mountains, the cottages are designed to relax the body and replenish the soul.

Olive Garden is also a place where one enjoys 'lekker' wholesome food prepared by Belgian chef and sommelier, Fernand Van Wassenhove. Our restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner, guests only.

Wynproe 101 met Johan Stemmet, Excelsior Wyne, Robertson


Ons kuier op die Excelsior wynplaas in die Robertson-distrik en Johan Stemmet, Wynmaker op die plaas, gee interessante inligting oor die basiese beginsels van 'n genotvolle wynproe. Kyk gerus die video saam met vriende en familie en gesels oor elkeen se standpunt met betrekking tot wynproe. Dit gaan beslis 'n interessante gesprek wees.

Hy praat ook oor vrae soos:

  • Wat is die beste manier om wyn te verouder of te bêre?
  • Wat is die beste vir 'n wynbottel? 'n Skroefkop of 'n kurkprop?
  • En: wat van 'n yssie by die wyn?
