About
The Raka brand was named after Piet Dreyer's black fishing vessel. Piet's first love has always been the sea. For some 36 years he braved the storms and challenges of the coast, ever in search of the best catch. It is with this same passion that the Dreyer family now pursue the art of wine making. With the rich blessing of earth and elements, the help of a dedicated workforce, the enthusiasm of winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern gravity flow cellar, Piet Dreyer produces his award-winning Raka wines.

We picked up this winery through trip advisor and we visited not to be disappointed! The tasting was done professionally and their Red Wine Collection is excellent! We would recommend them highly!

On route to Franskraal we stopped for a quick wine tasting at Raka. The cellar looks very nice and the wines was very good. A definite recommendation to stop and taste if passing by.

We visited as a wine club group at the end of November and had an absolutely wonderful winetasting with Melanie. She's a huge character and we loved the wines.
It really was a great experience.

Rushed...

We visited this estate 7 years ago and I remember a wonderful tasting with attention to detail...
Our last tasting (during last week) however felt rushed and even a bit unprofessional- with staff walking bare feet through the tasting room 😂😖
Maybe the tasting venue needs a bit of an update as well...

Good wine, ok experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
Visited Raka after tasting their wine when staying at Mosaic lodge. The wine was quite good but the experience at the tasting room was not as good as we hoped. There are food options on offer in a small shop. Good amount of seating. But the experience did not feel like an interesting wine tasting. Little information about Raka, the uniqueness of their wine was available. The server was pleasing but we weren’t sure excited to but wine based on what we learned. We purchased based on what we tasted at Mosaic.
Entire experience did not match what we expected after enjoying the wine during our Mocaic stay.

Hidden gem!
Dec 2018 • Couples
We tasted some of Raka's wines at a wine show where we also met the lovely wife of the owner. We therefore took it upon ourselves to stop at the farm and taste the rest of the wine while in the area. We were not disappointed.

The wines in the standard and reserve range are too die for. The standard range is particularly good value for money and we especially enjoyed the Sauvignon Blanc, Spliced (Red Blend), the Quinary (Red Blend) and the Biography Shiraz. The reserve range is naturally delicious as well.

The attendants were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the wines. We also felt totally at home on their lovely stoep (porch).

We will definitely be back!

Love these wines

Raka is in a very pretty spot, just up the valley from Standford. The wines at Raka are exceptional, we really like their Shiraz. The people you meet in the tasting room are invariably knowledgeable about the wines.
