As the Phoenix rises out of the ashes and emerges new from something that has been destroyed; this is Lanzerac.
This wine estate has a very special place in my heart; it is where my passion for wine, food styling and photography started. My very first review and post on my blog ElmarieBerry.com was on my visit to Lanzerac. Last year however, Lanzerac experienced a devastating fire. My heart was shattered; it was as though a part of Stellenbosch history went up in flames. So, when I received an invitation to come and visit the refurbished hotel, I could not refuse. I was excited to see what they had done with this Iconic hotel.
The hotel underwent a massive rebuild. I was absolutely astonished at what they did with the place. Project coordinator and Designer, Con Van Der Colff did a fantastic job. This is a prime example of something good coming out of something bad and with the 5-star facilities comes 5-star service.
