Winter brings with it a few things we don't enjoy. Mostly late sunrises and early sunsets. Who would imagine that it also brings with ti a plethora of beautiful and unusual words to describe those previous winter treasures, like apricity - the warmth of the wun in winter, or peiskos (Norwegian) - the feeling you get when you sit in front of a fireplace and enjoy its warmth.

Specific to the Western Cape, we dearly hope that it brings with it copious, drenching, excessive rain!

At Hartenberg we have always taken a very cautious and long-term view regarding the value of water and it’s strategic importance to our business. [Read more] about our water-saving venture, as explained by Carl.

2017 has been a defining vintage! 

"Hope means that we must trust and wait for what is still unseen" - probably every winemaker's lifeline. Read more about our 2017 vintage here

Peiskos and Hartenberg

Yes! We offer that fireside feeling, remembering Eleanor as she introduced the most divine soups at the farm so many years ago. Crackling, licking orange-yellow-and-blue flames ooze warmth and demand mouthwatering soups and soothing wines.

Join us for Eleanor’s delicious array of farm-style soups: the all-time-favourite Pea and Smoked Ham Soup, rich and healthy Chicken Soup, Potato & Leek (you can always add crispy bacon for a meaty feel), or hearty Courgette soup. You’ll find it all whilst tasting our world-class wines. For more choice, have a look at our full winter menu here, and contact René on rene@hartenbergestate.com to make your reservation.

If you’re more of the hibernating type, take home our Vertical Shiraz Selection (2005-2010); or the gems from the magical 2008 vintage (a selection of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot); or our Winter Warmer selection for great variety. We have limited availability of these special compilations – don’t miss out! Please contact René (rene@hartenbergestate.com) and Betty (betty@hartenbergestate.com) for more details.

From the Hartenberg team, our wish is that apricity comforts you this winter and if you cannot find the sun, join us on the farm for soul-warming peiskos!
