Holden Manz Wine Estate

Francois talks about their trip to Holden Manz

Holden Manz wine estate is located above the Franschhoek valley overlooked by magnificent mountains which stand guard over the beautiful valley below. Situated between the Franschhoek and Stony Brook rivers, this 22 hectares wine estate, with its fertile and dark loam soils, produces superb wines in a state-of-the-art cellar.

Klein Collection: What made you decide to stay at  HOLDEN MANZ?

Francois: I read about Holden Manz in a local newspaper and wanted to experience this new product.

Klein Collection: What was your first impression of  HOLDEN MANZ on arrival?

Francois: Beautiful surroundings, private country house and warm welcoming staff awaiting our arrival.

Klein Collection: What was the service like?

Francois: The service is very personalised and between Collette and Lamec on duty a ‘butler service’ comes to mind. Nothing was an issue for them.

Klein Collection: What was the food like?

Klein Collection: The afternoon tea after our check-in was a special touch. Breakfast was faultless and Lamec really can make any breakfast order. The restaurant’s food was impeccable and we had a private dinner in front of the large fireplace. (I can highly recommend the fillet!)

Klein Collection: What was the highlight of your stay at  HOLDEN MANZ?

Francois: Warm hospitality from our hosts (Collette and Lamec) and extraordinary art pieces throughout the country house. The food was also very good.
