Idiom Wines is based in the heart of the Helderberg range. This southernmost part of the Stellenbosch wine region provides the backdrop and the perfect climatic conditions for the incredible range of wines. A celebration of terroir, unusual varietals and masterful blends, Idiom is so-called because it is home to the Cape expression of so many European classics. The Idiom Restaurant and Wine Tasting Centre opened in June 2016, and the venue offers ‘contemporary dining ‘ in the restaurant and a wine tasting centre that showcases Idiom’s flagship blends & signature Italian varietal wines.
