There are enchanting places where one can escape life’s hustle and bustle, and Muratie is one of those magical treasures. Hidden away in the exquisite Knorhoek valley, with a perfect view of Table Mountain, Muratie is as old as history itself, with a unique, almost tangible old-world ambience. The passion for preserving the estate’s rich, centuries-old heritage is captured in every nook and cranny of this family farm. Beautiful old Cape Dutch buildings, crumbling statues, antique wine-making equipment, and the quaint tasting room with its cobwebs, stained glass windows and art, are all set in a secret garden, a lush green haven of peace and tranquillity.

The story of Muratie Wine Estate, layered in rich South African wine history, is reason enough to pay a visit to this historic farm, but it’s the abundance of activities to be enjoyed there that keeps visitors returning: from wine tasting, dining and bike-riding to contemporary art and event curation.

Tasting Room
Muratie’s magical tasting room is open seven days a week for wine tasting and chocolate pairing.

The Farm Kitchen
The estate’s restaurant, offering modern and refined yet classic cuisine, is open for breakfast and lunch from Wednesday to Sunday.

Treks & Trails
For those who love being outdoors, Muratie offers amazing trails for mountain biking and trail running, suitable for beginners, as well as intermediate and experienced riders and runners. The picturesque surrounding ensures an unforgettable experience. Permits are available from the Muratie Tasting Room. Managed and maintained by Dirtopia, the trails are open weekdays and weekends during the day.

Contemporary Culture at the MOK Gallery
Muratie is also home to the contemporary MOK Gallery. ‘MOK’, an abbreviation for modern kontemporêr, is the Afrikaans translation for modern contemporary. Art is an important aspect of the Muratie history with the late owner and artist, George Paul Canitz, serving much of his tenure on the estate. The gallery is located in Ansela van de Caab’s house, dating from 1685.
