ABOUT

We're all about capturing the natural essence of Fynbos, whether it's a flavour to add to our culinary repertoire, a scent or an artistic image to inspire our lifestyle range.

We're also about making the intangible tangible by interpreting that elusive feeling evoked by Fynbos. The Cape Floristic Region is a UNESCO World Heritage Site filled with intangible heritage. The Cape Town Fynbos Experience® is an exploration of this essence in the form of a guided tasting.

Our Fynbos farm is on the slopes of the historic Hawequas Mountains overlooking the Cape Winelands valley of Wellington, Western Cape, South Africa.

CAPE TOWN FYNBOS EXPERIENCE

TASTE BOTANICAL HERITAGE

Immerse yourself in all things Fynbos at the inimitable Cape Town Fynbos Experience®
in the Cape Winelands with botanical heritage advocate Giselle Courtney.

"What's so special about our Fynbos farm is the sense of peace and timelessness, an almost tangible connection with nature", says Giselle, creator of the Cape Town Fynbos Experience® and South African Fynbos®.

The two-hour guided tasting is an in-depth exploration of the essential flavours of edible Fynbos species followed by experimental Fynbos tapas created by you. Learn how to pair Fynbos flavours with everyday meals to create South African flavour sensations and integrate the health benefits and traditional knowledge of Fynbos into a contemporary lifestyle. Take advantage of our onsite shopping and guided walk through endangered Renosterveld.

We look forward to welcoming you!
