LYNX

We are passionate, because that is the way to reach quality.
We are authentic, because we want to produce origin-oriented wines.
We are different, because we want to distinguish ourselve.
And we love what we do!

SEE OUR WINES

The Farm

Lynx is located between Stellenbosch (15 minutes), Paarl (15 minutes) and Franschhoek (10 minutes) in the foothills of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Our boutique farm is one of the smaller wineries in the district. If you stay in the idyllic village of Franschhoek, you should definitely visit our extraordinary winery on the outskirts of town.

Our winery does not only offer an absolutely picturesque landscape, it also has a variety of fascinating wines that you simply 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 insight into the production. We are an individually managed company that makes its production mostly by hand and allows its guests a very private experience of wine tasting.

The Family behind the dream

You need courage
to break new ground,
and you need passion
to make the plan succeed.

When we, Manuel and Brigitte Konen, visited Franschhoek for the first time together with our three daughters, Annabel, Antonia and Alicia, we were immediately captivated  by this place and its people. Franschhoek is the culinary capital of South Africa and stands for outstanding wines, fantastic food and a landscape that enthance you. Our passion has always been wine and good food. The dream of having our own winery has been around for a long time … maybe one day! Now our family slogan “Live Your Dream” has finally 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 a golf lawn on Lynx, but rather a charming landscape around the vineyard that should remain largely untouched.
We have planted fynbos to protect the local vegetation, and have set up bee hives to directly contribute to species conservation.
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  for a common and good future.
Children and young people are  close to our heart and we therefore support the volunteer organisation Franschhoek Hospitality Academy which gives disadvantaged Young people from the area a real chance to receive training in the hospitality industry.
