Hofstraat cellar is a garagiste winery owned by Wim Smit, the resident winemaker. He is a well known commercial builder in Malmesbury and the surrounding Swartland. He took his aesthetic perfection of building practices and directly applied it into his hobby, wine making. Officially registered in 2002, Hofstraat cellar, with Renosterbos being its flagship wine, has since won many prestigious awards and accolades, making it a staple in the wine making community and the Swartland wine route.
The home of Renosterbos wines, Myrtledene, has since expanded to include a function venue and it's with great excitement that we welcome the newest member to the family, the restaurant Café Myrtledene. Lawrence Smit, a fellow Malmesbury resident, will lead this establishment as chef and owner. He has in recent years expanded his culinary prowess working at numerous prestigious institutions across South Africa. The chef and staff are elated to tantelise your taste buds with an array of delicious and heart warming dishes. Come and enjoy the food and relax in the beautiful, brand new Café Myrtledene.
