Wine, Olive Oil & Balsamic Vinegar Tasting, Story of Wine Museum

Babylonstoren’s wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery and are made to showcase the soils and climate where their grapes are grown. The Tasting Room sits adjacent to the Wine Cellar, offering views of the conical Babylonstoren hill, Simonsberg and the Banghoek Mountains.

The Tasting Room offers wine tasting on a first-come, first-served basis. Visit the brand-new museum, The Story of Wine. This interactive space is a visual documentary of the history and cultivation of wine, accompanied by a captivating audio guide. Do not miss their cellar tours (including tasting in the subterranean wine tunnel) at 10h00, 13h00 and 16h00.

The olive oil and balsamic vinegar tours take place at 11h00, 13h00 and 15h00.
All tours depart from the Tasting Room.
