I went for a wine tasting as I was particularly interested in the White Pinotage, but there were no tastings allowed of the wine, but I could buy a glass for R115! Needless to say, I passed the White Pinotage, and just tasted the red Pinotage.
What impressed me the most was the knowledge and enthusiasm of the lady serving us

An absolutely fabulous weekend, good food, good wine and an amazing host, Bea-Marie. Bea went out of her way to make sure we had the best stay ever.

A small hidden gem of a wine estate in Stanford in the Whale capital of South Africa. The chenin blanc is one of the best i have had.

My first visit to EATS at Springfontein Wine Estate. It was a beautiful day so they had the lunch set up outside.
We opted for the 3 course menu. What a surprise. With all the anous bouche palate cleansers inbetween. So dont expect only 3 courses. ! The food was excellent. Service equally as excellent . Will definately return.
Only suggestion is maybe have citronella candles to keep the flies away. We know its a farm, but I prefer the flies not to be near such an incredible meal!!! Excellent job by chef and team. A definate hidden GEM. Thanks

Wine tasting in a beautiful renovated barn really sets the scene. Elizabeth was friendly and knowledgeable making the experience memorable.
There was a small tasting fee but we certainly didn't pay R400 for the tasting - sorry can’t remember exact price!

A group of us, having just completed a hike, came for a winetasting, but were horrified at the price - R440 per person just for a winetasting! I have never paid that price anywhere, not even in Stellenbosch or Franschhoek. The day was saved, however, by the delightful Elizabeth who found a way to keep us happy and entertained. Well done, Elizabeth, and thank you for your friendly and charming manner. We landed up having a fun afternoon after all.

During our holidays in SA we spent a day in Springfontein Wine Estate. The owner Johst Weber and his team Tariro, Hildegard and Jeanne showed us around and gave us a deep insight into the secrets of ecological top class wine making. After the tour we we sat together tasting a great variety of pinotage and chenin blancs. Don't leave without a glass of "Gadda da Vida Pinotage". The estate is a bit off the main tourist routes but definately worth to make a little detour

We visited this estate with the sommelier from our hotel Grootbos. Winemaker Tariro was kind enough to give us a personal tour of the vineyards and a detailed explanation of the terroir (limestone ridge) and wine-making philosophy (organic!). The tasting room was large and lovely. A solid food menu is available if you need something more substantial. The meat spring rolls were excellent.

It was our first introduction to South African chenin Blanc and pinotage. We left with two crates - the 2015 vintages were excellent!

Some animals spotted in the area - guinea hens, caracals, a peacock and a rather lovely farm cat!

The surrounding village is also very pretty. Well worth a stop.

If heard springfibtein, not to be confused with Springfield winery in Bonnievale was good so we tried it. You have in my opinion to be dedicated to find it in the edge of Stanford saints not very clearly signposted.

A blazing hot day but the outdoor restaurant was cool.enough.

I said unusual.food. I believe slow food is the term.e.g. A hot starter of tongue and root vegetables. I enjoyed it but for.my taste as I use little salt in cooking a bit salty. We followed this with lamb 'curry'y -succulent lamb with a curry gravy than sauce. Again unusual and not what I expected.

We then had a very complicated dessert with yukka flowers and coconut. I forget all.the ingredients but it was different and delicious petals and all!

Not sure about the wines - they have a small selection of whites and reds. We had the white which was a blend including semillion.

Good service and excellent accompaniments especially the breads, amuse bouches. Cheffy food done with care overall.

We stayed and dined at Springfontein on the way to Gansbaai for a shark cage diving tour, and we’re so glad to have found the place. The meal was the highlight of our trip in South Africa.

Dinner at the restaurant was one of the most memorable meals I’ve ever had. I will never forget the delicious sorrel soup I had for desert. The only way I can describe it, is that it tasted like cold sweet grass, sounds awful I know, but trust me, the deep earthy flavour made you eager to keep taking the next gulp until the bowl was empty.

The service was impeccable and they had a comprehensive wine selection. If you get the chance, I would highly recommend sampling the food at the restaurant.

Accommodation
We stayed in one of the cottages, and if you like somewhere remote, removed from the real world - this place is for you. Quiet and extremely peaceful.
