LYNX

We are emotional because that is the way to reach quality.
We are authentic because we want to produce origin oriented wines.
We polarize, because you have to take decisions.
And we love what we do!

The Farm

Our winery is located between Stellenbosch (20 minutes), Paarl (20 minutes) and Franschhoek (10 minutes) on the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Our farm is one of the smaller boutique wineries in town with a production of about 85,000 bottles of wine per year. If you stay in the idyllic village of Franschhoek, you should definitely visit our small, extraordinary winery Lynx on the outskirts of the town. Our winery does not only offer an absolutely picturesque landscape, it also has a variety of fascinating wines that you have to taste. Our guests appreciate the fact that we welcome them in a familiar way, let them taste our wines which we produce with passion and dedication and provide them with an insight into the production. We are an individually managed company that makes its production mostly manual and allows its guests a very private experience of wine tasting.

The Family Behind

You need courage
to break new ground,
And you need passion
to make them succeed.

With our three daughters we visited South Africa for the first time in 2013. When it took us to Franschhoek, we were immediately trapped by this place. It stands for outstanding wines, fantastic food and a landscape that captivates you. Our passion has always been wine and good food. The dream of having our own winery has always been around … maybe one day! Our family motto “Live Your Dream” has now come true! In February 2018, we took a bold step and decided to fulfil our dream at the Lynx winery. The first time we saw Lynx Farm, it had happened to us.
We feel very connected to the country and the people here and therefore it is very important for us to put our focus on the South Africans, their lives and country. We want to pass on this spirit and cuisine of the country to you, our customers.

When we visited Franschhoek for the first time together with our three daughters we were immediately trapped by this place and their people. Franschhoek is the culinary capital of South Africa and stands for outstanding wines, fantastic food and a landscape that captivates you. Our passion has always been wine and good food. The dream of having our own winery has always been around … maybe one day! Our family slogan “Live Your Dream” has now come true! With Lynx Estate we have dared a bold step and have decided to fulfil our dream.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We want to respect people and nature,
preserve traditions
and still make history.

It is very important to us that we give space to nature on our farm. You will not find golf lawn on our farm, but rather a charming wild garden landscape around the vineyard, because nature should remain largely untouched.
We also want to support the nature and have therefore set up a few apiaries in which the animals can produce their honey for us to contribute indirectly to species conservation. In addition, you will find flowers, which we plant to protect the local Fynbos.
Whoever is with us on the farm will soon realize that we are a big family, no matter what origin, colour or religion we have. It is important to us that we work together, to pull all together for a common and good future.
Unfortunately, in South Africa it is still the case that the coloured population is disadvantaged. That is why it is a matter of our heart to give a real chance to children in particular. We therefore support the extraordinary volunteer organisation Franschhoek Hospitality, which gives young coloured people directly in Franschhoek the opportunity to receive training in the hospitality.
