7 Reasons to Marry at Quoin Rock

Tucked in the Knorheok valley, the Quoin Rock Wine Estate is renowned for romance, serenity, and sophistication. Here are seven reasons to plan your special day at our vineyard wedding venue.

1. A breathtakingly beautiful vineyard venue

One of the most obvious reasons to get married at Quoin Rock is that the scenery is simply unforgettable. With a commanding view of Table Mountain and Simonsberg Mountain, lush green vineyards, beautiful architecture and perfectly manicured lawns, this wine farm wedding venue is in a league of its own. 

The unique setting of the estate allows for countless photo opportunities, and with many outdoor ceremony options available to choose from, it is the perfect backdrop for a glamorous and extravagant wedding. 

The private landscaped gardens serve as the ideal location for glass marquees and open-air events. The Venue can accommodate up to 150 seated guests and 300 guests for cocktail events. 

Alternatively, The Manor House provides an opulent dining room with seating for 14 people, making it the perfect venue for an intimate wedding if you’re looking for a beautiful small wedding venue.

2. The wine and cuisine is world-class 

This vineyard wedding venue is home to the award-winning Gate restaurant and events at Quoin Rock include in-house catering by head Chef Jack Coetzee. Each dish crafted by Coetzee is a work of creative mastery and culinary genius, inspired by the bountiful array of ingredients available on the doorstep of the estate. 

Chef Jack Coetzee’s menu is varied and ever-changing according to the season and designed to pair perfectly with our award-winning estate wines. Why not allow your guests to partake in a five-star experience as they eat, drink and enjoy the wedding festivities?

3. A stress-free vineyard wedding

In the past, weddings took place at several different venues. You may have gotten ready at home, travelled to the ceremony, travelled again for the reception, and then eventually set off on your honeymoon somewhere entirely different. 

While many people still choose to have a multi-site wedding, today most couples prefer the convenience of a venue that offers everything in one place and this is just what Quoin Rock has to offer. 

With everything from in-house catering to a helipad, a selection of furniture and even cutlery and crockery included, Quoin Rock Wine Estate has taken care of everything. It truly is the perfect venue to enjoy a stress-free wine farm wedding.

4. A weather-proof venue

Although South Africa is known for having many days of sunshine, there is always the possibility that it will rain on your wedding day. That is why Quoin Rock provides all their couples with a Plan B. If the sun is shining on your special day, you can choose from the many outdoor options available, but if it isn’t, your guests will be just as impressed with state-of-the-art design and architecture at the Quoin Rock Venue

The Venue offers high-end, luxurious décor finishes, marble floors and custom-made light fixtures throughout. Enormous stacking doors open onto a spacious outdoor terrace that offers panoramic views of the vineyards and mountains. Our wine farm wedding venue makes it impossible for a bout of bad weather to dampen your special day.

5. Rustic charm meets glamour and elegance

The undeniable elegance and extravagance of Quoin Rock combined with the rustic charm of the natural world makes the ‘feel’ of a winelands venue hard to beat. At our vineyard wedding venue, these two contrasting ideas are perfectly married to create a world-class venue that offers couples a unique experience that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world.

6. A weekend away

Destination weddings have always been a desirable option for couples, and venues in Stellenbosch are perfect if this is what you and your partner have in mind. 

Whether it’s organised by you, or on their own, there is so much for your guests to do, both before and after the big day. Why not host a luncheon before the big day or arrange to take family and friends on a wine tour ? Book at a neighbouring farm for a morning-after brunch to help cure your post-wedding blues or encourage your guests to enjoy one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Western Cape – the Stellenbosch Wine Route. There are so many great ways to make sure you spend quality time with all your loved ones and it is also a great way to show off South Africa’s charms to foreign visitors.

7. Plentiful accommodation options

Whatever their budget, finding accommodation in and around the winelands will be no trouble for your guests. Stellenbosch is home to a variety of luxurious boutique hotels, b&bs, as well as many reasonably priced self-catering cottages. 

The Quoin Rock Manor House is the perfect option for your bridal party as it can accommodate up to 14 people. Featuring five en-suite king bedrooms, a private dining and living space, breakfast room, kitchen and TV room with a wood-burning fireplace, you can rest assured that you will feel truly looked after in this special home.

An additional private guest cottage has two en-suite king bedrooms, along with a living area and a fully equipped kitchen. 

Not far away is Quoin Rock’s sister farm, Knorhoek Wine Estate, home to both bed and breakfast and self-catering units.
