As the weather grows warmer, we are excited by the season ahead! With the vines beginning to bud and new life starting to bloom, we take great delight in watching the Ken Forrester farm change as we welcome spring.


Over the past few months, we have hosted a series of tasting events to celebrate 25 fun years of producing wines from our vineyards in Stellenbosch. The final event, The Long Table Lunch, hosted on the lawns of our manor house and beyond, is scheduled for 16 November.

Our guests can expect a private performance by Stellenbosch band, Bottomless Coffee, on our lush lawns whilst sipping on Sparklehorse Cap Classique. This is the perfect opportunity to enjoy your favourite Ken Forrester wines in a walk-around tasting, allowing the good times to flow with great music, marvellous company and even better wines. From then on, guests will be seated at the long table and a seasonally-inspired family-style luncheon will be served with a range of Ken Forrester wines to enjoy all afternoon. All profits will be donated to Spark Schools Lynedoch, as well as all the proceeds from the 8 tastings hosted throughout the year.

Price: R795 per person , and are sadly limited.
Purchase on or at our Wine Lounge.

We invite you to join us for a superb day in the summer sun, as we toast to our past 25 years, and to the next 25 years of fun.

There is nothing better than hearing the cork pop out of your favourite bottle of bubbly, especially when the weather is balmy! Ken Forrester Sparklehorse Cap Classique is the perfect treat to bring along to any occasion.

Chenin Blanc, you say? Sparklehorse embraces the Ken Forrester philosophy of creating Chenin Blancs for every occasion. Made from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes harvested at 18’B to preserve the fresh natural acidity, before spending 12 months on the lees, Sparklehorse delights with fresh delicate flavours of apple, pear and quince.

Sparklehorse is R185 per bottle, and available either online at or from the Ken Forrester Wine Lounge.

Everyone deserves a treat to end off the long work week. We invite you all to join us for our wine-filled festivities at the Ken Forrester Wine Lounge for First Fridays with Forrester starting on 1 November.

Between 16h00 and 18h00 we will be leaving our doors open and inviting everyone to join us for a glass of wine to end off the work week! There will be laughs, there will be wine, and there will most definitely be good times!

You can choose from a glass of any of the Ken Forrester Reserve Range wines for R75.00 which includes either a simple cheese plate with wagyu biltong, or homemade dips with crackers. The Ken Forrester wines, will be available to purchase by the glass or bottle at fun prices as well as a ‘Buy 2 bottles and get 50% off the 3rd’ for take home purchases.

Bring your colleagues and friends, and start your weekend off the right way at Ken Forrester!
