HAASKRAAL Vineyards and Country Farm Lodge

There is something about a farm that touches our inner being. Perhaps it's the back-to-basics lifestyle that is largely unaffected by modern life, or the simplicity of the days activities. It might be the proximity to the freshly tilled soil that speaks of new growth or the closeness to the farm animals. We all need to escape to recharge and Haaskraal vineyards and Country Lodge has all the ingredients to enable you to enjoy such peaceful activates. Whether it be soaking up the magnificent beauty of the Hawequa mountain range from the stoep or enjoying a glass of our wine from our cellar, Haaskraal County Lodge offers you the perfect setting to enable you to rediscover your soul....
