Holden Manz Wine Estate in Franschhoek
Situated between the Franschoek and Stony Brook Rivers, this 22-hectare wine estate benefits from wonderfully fertile and dark loam soils and a state-of-the-art wine-making cellar. The Holden Manz Wine Estate is in the unique and privileged position in Franschhoek to offer vineyardsa and winery, a restaurant with its enchanting picnic areas along the river, and a 5 Star guest house with its very own health and wellness spa.
Our own on-site vineyard restaurant, aptly named the Franschhoek Kitchen, is run by head chef Bjorn Dingemans, who loves nothing more than finding the best local fresh produce and using the vegetables and fruits from our very own gardens in order to create clean combinations of tasty food. Our standards are based on the best international cuisine, but our heart lies in the simplicity and purity of each and every ingredient. We prefer to see our guests enjoy a home-made dish, inspired by the country we live in and the farm we work on.
Holden Manz Wine Estate is also perfectly suited for events such as family parties and company outings. Our team is happy to cater for any event, or we can simply turn your big birthday or wedding into the unforgettable event of the season. Our creative team are eager to suggest and plan the most outstanding events for you, and our locations on the farm are numerous and varied.
Holden Manz Guest House at the manor house has been built in the Cape Dutch-style but is only just over 10 years old. Luckily for our guests, this means that the spaces you would normally find in a Cape Dutch building are vastly more comfortable and grand in layout on our estate. The mute variations of different grey tones on the wall surfaces allow the changing light of the seasons to play joyfully with the warm interior finishes, while extra-large bed pillows invite you to dive into a calm sleep after a day filled with new experiences in the Cape Winelands. A modern art collection can be found throughout the buildings and every suite features contemporary African art on show.

Reviews for Holden Manz Wine Estate
Stopping at Holden Manz on the wine tram was the worst idea we had last Sunday. The 3 staff managed to actively ignore us for the full hour that we sat amongst other guests with wine glasses. We had to ask Paul for service once and another waitress a second time, still they all awkwardly avoided looking at us each time they served people right next to us. I have never been treated so badly as a potential customer (we were not given the chance to be an actual customers). We will never go there again.
Very poor service. The lady serving us came with two bottles of wine, poured one glass and immediately asked if we were done and ready for the next wine and was then rude when I said Im still busy. Wines are very light.
A bit stressy and hasty, partly confusing. Nice venue and welcoming staff.
Fantastic mother day venue. Great service, awesome view of the vineyard and mountains.The estate wine is unfortunately best forgotten. Food was flavourful and well presented, but the portions were extremely small and so expensive for what was offered, it is difficult to reconcile the complete experience with the price charged.
Lovely wine tasting area. Beautiful scenery. There are 3 wine tasting options to choose from (at time of writing - 25 April 2018). I love that you can see into the cellar and view the barrel storage area. Highly recommend the shiraz and the chenin blanc
Stunning scenery however complete lack of attention during wine tasting. Wines were not explained. White wines served warm and left waiting for wines.
Lovely Sunday lunch, I'm vegan so I had the polenta with veggies and it was beautiful! We enjoyed the Mellow 2013 with our mains and it complemented it perfectly. Service was good, friendly waiter with a great view.
Absolutely fantastic place to be. In the heart of Franschoek and the scenery is beautiful. Was there for an event and was blown away with the service and great food. Wine tours are available and well worth it. Did I mention how good the wine is?
As part of the wine tour, we went to Holden Manz. The place has good views. They also have a large green area with a water body near the restaurant for the kids to play. The tasting was good and the server was kind enough to change our wines as part of tasting as we prefer white over red wines. We also had the cheese platter which had good variety and was good.
We loved this place! The Setting is beautiful and peaceful and overall it's a small enough environment to be intimate. We had lunch and the food was fantastic. Stunning presentation, great flavour combinations and good quality ingredients. The service was good too. The Good Sport dessert wine is delicious and we bought a couple of bottles to take home with us. A great day out in Franschoek and we will definitely return.
