Wine tasting and platters
Oct 2018 • Couples
Very good service. Very enjoyable wine tasting. Wine ambassador provided very good and friendly service and was very informative in explaining the wines we chose. Platters offered are delicious and more than enough to share and enjoy. All together, we had a great visit and experience. The chef was also very nice and addressed us at our table.

A good stay away
Jun 2018 • Couples
Weekend away from Cape Town.

Lovely chalets with underfloor heating and fireplace.
Breakfast was very basic, not much in a choice or selection, but we hadn't planned on eating breakfast there.

Although a few things not to our liking (open plan bathroom in bedroom or the bed too small in the cottage with on-suite) it was a pleasant stay and I'd recommend.

Our Best Food Experience in SA
Apr 2018 • Friends
This is a magical place! The location, the ambience, the service and the food were all nothing short of superb. Every aspect of our dining experience was first class. The dedication to excellence was evident throughout.
Springfontein is an excellent destination for people who love fine food that is beautifully prepared, and lovingly served.

The best,the VERY BEST.
Mar 2018 • Friends
When you have the fun of being on a multi site winetasting tour with so many delicious wines put before you it takes something very special to bat you between the eyes as being so far and away better than anything else.This was such a place.

First the people...Dr Johst Weber gave the introductory talk and introduced us to Tariro Masayiti,the most enthusiastic and laid back winemaker I have ever met.Then came Hidegard Witbooli.who is the vineyard manager and whose laughter and enthusiasm linked with a total range and depth of background and level of experimentation with grafting to fashion totally new vine stock is mesmeric.Last (and we met him later) was master chef Jurgen Schneider.More to follow...

The vineyard tour by mini bus driven by Hildegard Witbooli and emphasised how huge the estate is in this rolling valley.The tour of the production plant byTariro Masayiti was a riot of laughter and solid fact followed by an exceptional lunch and fulsome tasting.which is worth repeating in full.

(1) Ulumbaza white 2016 and Chenin Blanc Terroir selection 2016-crustecean tartar and avocados.(2) Daredevils Ridge Single Vineyard Pinatage 2013-trout Mediterranean (3) Johanathans Ridge Single Vineyard Pinotage 2013-braised beef (4) Ikhalezi Chenin Blanc Noble Late harvest-cheese platter/sweet sashimi.

Guess you get a flavour of how totally mind blowing was the occasion.The food was top notch in the Michelin star range and chef was rewarded with a prolonged standing ovation.....The very best.No question.If you ever get the chance...make a visit a priority.

Sleep over
Sep 2017
We had a previous meal at Spingfontein and enjoyed it, so we decided to stay over and have a meal at the restaurant.
The room was disappointing, not well cleaned with spider webs in the corners, a old bun in one cup and stale old water in the electric kettle.
The meal was a four-course meal without wine. The food, with extras from the cook, was tasty. For a Saturday night we were only five quests in the restaurant.
Something went wrong!

Relaxing weekend away
Sep 2017 • Couples
We stayed at the Fisherman's Cottage for two nights. Such a cute little cottage with a lot of charm. Nicely renovated inside with big fireplace in the bedroom, underfloor heating, heated towel rail and beautifully renovated bathroom. A short walk from Springfontein Eats where we enjoyed a lovely complimentary breakfast in the mornings. Do book a dinner with them during your stay. The service was great, even the resident cat, Sokkies, was a pleasure to meet! Great weekend getaway location if you're looking for some peace and quiet to relax, and watch a spectacular starry night sky. The surrounding Stanford village is filled with things to do and see. Lots of wine tasting opportunities! We'll be back!

Most remarkable tasting!
Sep 2017
How are we so lucky to have this amazing experience. Based on very little research we ended up at Springfontein for a tasting. Quickly we appreciated the fantastic wines. And we were treated to the best guide ever, who shared so much enthusiasm and curiosity for their creative approach to wine making. It was like time with your most inspiring college professor. A most humble guide, too, as it wasn't until the very end that we figured out that our host was Tariro, the winemaker himself. Tariro also provided suggestions that were the basis of several great days after we left Stanford.

We loved the casual cool modern/rustic environment. The bites we had after the tasting were perfect. Our server was attentive. We bought two bottles to go, Jonathon's Ridge and Gadda da Vida and are still debating which we liked best. Guess we'll have to come back for more to settle that!

Met the winemaker!
May 2017 • Couples
We have visited Springfontein on previous occassions and have always enjoyed the wine tasting and love the wines. This occassion was special as Tariro, the wine-maker personally took us through the tasting. We really benefited from his knowledge, insight and first hand experience with the making of the wines. We were privileged to meet him- besides his obvious love for what he does - he was the first black student in his time who graduated from Stellenbosch university with a degree in Viticulture and Oenology. Each wine is a product of his creativity and expertise. Great day and experience! Suffice to say we left with more boxes of the Springfontein wine!
