Celebrating being Authentically South African

Celebrating being Authentically South African

Leopard's Leap has recently been acknowledged as an honouree in the 2020 Wine & Food Tourism Awards for its Authentic South African Experience. While it is especially the interactive Leopard's Leap South African Table that celebrates our country's food and wine heritage, it is also the warm hospitality, informal and welcoming ambience, proudly South African wines and incorporating traditional South African cooking traditions and food styles, that make Leopard's Leap Family Vineyards a must-visit on any Franschhoek Valley itinerary.

"Our wines are distributed in more than 40 countries with consumers worldwide enjoying Leopard's Leap wines as an outstanding example of South African quality. At our Franschhoek home, we enjoy treating our guests to a real South African food and wine experience", says Leopard's Leap  CEO Hein Koegelenberg.

Taste the latest vintage releases or special editions, do some gift and décor shopping or bring your family and friends to enjoy a relaxed brunch, lunch or a few nibbles over a glass of wine. Complimenting the juicy cuts from the rotisserie are seasonal sides and salads and delicious treats from the pastry kitchen or wood-fired oven. Choose to relax under the trees, on the wide stoep or the indoor restaurant and make sure to sip on a wine cocktail while enjoying the vineyard and mountain views. 

Book for the award-winning, interactive South African table and join Chef Christiaan Visser and one of our passionate wine tasting ambassadors in the kitchen for a lunch of true SA favourites, stories about our food and wine and of course all things delicious to enjoy for lunch!
