Picture Guardian Peak in Stellenbosch, Cape Winelands, Western Cape, South Africa The wines crafted by winemaker, Philip van Staden, range from an easy drinking blend through to the flagship - Lapa Cabernet Sauvignon - with huge structure. All perfectly paired with each dish.

Philip was born and bred in Stellenbosch, after finishing up at Paul Roos he studied winemaking at Elsenburg College. Philip started with the company in 2004, where he completed a harvest at Rust en Vrede. After a move to Ernie Els wines and four years later, Philip moved down to Guardian Peak in 2009 where he has taken over the winemaking responsibilities.

Emphasising our “wine with food” concept, the winery includes a demonstration kitchen where our full-time chef, Louisa Greeff, displays her culinary talents and provides patrons with meals intended to compliment each of the wines. The open-plan restaurant runs smoothly under Louisa's organisation.

Whether you visit for the wines or the food, Guardian Peak has to be one of the best lunch time food and wine experiences in the Cape.
