      Master wines tasting...
      Van Loveren winery is a special place to visit at any time. We pre-booked knowing that there was a large group of wine walkers heading there that morning and chose the Masters wines tasting. Excellent experience, very knowledgable member of staff who conducted her brief with humour and made the experience even more entertaining. Fabulous selection of wines, the experience was never rushed as we sat outside in the garden(the garden is worth a tour around), and once again we enjoyed this our second visit, the first being in 2018. Fine shop, bubbly stoppers, a favourite wine and the Rhino cream liquor. We will return...

      Brilliant visit
      We visited yesterday and had a fantastic experience. Our Ambassador was Frida who was brilliant and very knowledgeable. She looked after us from start to finish. My wife had a 6 glass tasting with bread, olive oil balsamic, olives and dukkha. I had a classic 4 glass tasting. We also had a glass of MCC each and bought a bottle of Rose. The value was outstanding

      Jason at Van Loveren tasting room
      After our wonderful experience at the Van Loveren restaurant, Christina’s we were interested in some of the wines the farm had to offer and popped into the wine tasting room and met a fabulous gentleman, Jason. Jason’s knowledge of the family farm history and it’s wines were out of this world. His stories of the farms history and passion for wine is commendable. Jason your passion for your job is admirable. You made our experience a phenomenal one. I really wish the management of the farm recognizes your talent and appreciates you. You costs us a lot of money with the copious amount of wine you sold us. Thanks Jason. Have a lekker day!!!

      entirely unreliable
      This is a scam operation. They will take your money and then not deliver wine. They do not respond when questioned about nondelivery. I would not order wine from them.

      7.5 km Hike above the vineyards.
      Lovely friendly and helpful staff, especially Michaela. Did the 7.5 km hike,harder than expected, took nearly 6 hours with a few stops. The view is breath taking and lots of birds. Well signposted,just quite exposed in summer. Had a decilious Expresso milkshake at Christina's afterwards.

      Good cellar tour and tasting
      We had a Hyperli voucher for a cellar tour, tasting and bottle of wine. We were a little uncertain as to whether this was good value, but we needn't have worried. The cellar tour was very interesting and our guide was very informative. The wine tasting was well organised and really good quality. It was lovely to sit in the garden for our tasting.

      Beautiful garden
      On a very hot day we had lunch under the vine. The garden is really very special. But we miss Ouma's sweetcorn fritters.

      Organic suprise
      What a lovely wine cellar and deli. We found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. We only walked through on the way to the restaurant, but before we knew it we were tasting wine, which helped when it came to choosing from the wine list at Christina's. And yes, we ended up buying a box or two too!

      Fantastic well-rounded experience on a family wine-farm in RSA
      Time is on the side of this family. The farm has been owned by the Retiefs for hundreds of years. One of them had a knack for gardening, because I have never seen a garden like this, except for the Queen Victoria Gardens in Cape Town Centre. The restaurant and wine-tasting facility is situated under three-hundred year old trees and lush, flowering vegetation. An excellent selection of red, white and preserve wines.

      Popular and very busy
      This famous and popular wine farm owes it's charm to the Retief family who has been making world renowned wines for a long time. The tasting area is busy and people just enjoy the food and wine tasting experience on offer. We had the Sparkling wines and cakes, just spectacular !!

    The restaurant is beautiful. The wine pairing was exactly what I was looking forward to. We had the Van Loveren wine and cheese pairing & Undiscovered Gems pairing. The service was not great. The staff was busy cleaning the restaurant and it felt they were suppose to do that before the restaurant had opened

    The gardens at Van Loveren are so serene and add a wonderful atmosphere to the wine tasting experience. But you should not be in the Robertson Wine Valley if you do not like wines, because that is what the valley is all about.

    We arrived early and enjoyed walking around the gardens of the estate. They are immaculately kept and so relaxing. There are chairs and tables located all around the garden and you can ejoy your wine tasting in whichever environment you choose! We sat under the trees next to the pond. It added to the ambiance. There are a few pairings to choose from, depending on your tastes in cheeses, wines etc. We each chose a different option so that we could experience more!! Staff are so helpful and attentive. Worth a visit.

    We booked a wine pairing online. Unfortunately they could not find our booking on their system!

    As they were not busy, the very helpful staff could accommodate our group.

    To explore the various pairings, we chose a number of different styles of wine. The pairings were well presented and chosen with care to compliment the wine.

    Our favorite was the African Java Pinotage and biltong, closely followed by the Rhino Chardonnay and Dalewood Brie.

    Afterwards we stocked up on olive oil, cheese and charcuterie from the deli.

    We sat on a hot day in a cool beautiful garden and and enjoyed our wine and after that we went and bought a few bottles of good wine to take home with us.
    Great place and worth visiting.

    We did the wine tastings and the kids did the kids tasting. It's is a beautiful place with stunning wines. Will definately be back.

    Only thing we would like them to add is maybe a second kids tasting with savoury things, not only the one with all the sweet things. Because we did more than one tasting and the kids asked if there was another one for them.
