This fine wine estate has been bought by a Portuguese businessman and has been cast on the scrapheap. He has just fired all the staff who have been loyal to this once wonderful gem. A sad sign of the times. The locals don't seem to be aware of this.😔

A brilliant estate just outside Paarl. Superb lunch surrounded by stunning views of the mountains. We didn't experience a wine tasting in the true sense, as we enjoyed some of their wines over lunch. Highly recommend this as one of the stops in the Winelands.

We visited Laborie during the Ommiberg Festival! Had a fantastic time tasting different wines, sampling some great food while the little ones were entertained. Was our third visit to the farm and we will definitely be back again.

Another bad groupon experience! I know the business's won't make any money on groupon redemption, but that's not an excuse of making your customers having bad experience at your business. The 2 round wine tastings are both serving on a board, instead of telling you the story and information one by one, their staff would tell u all the information... More

Some very unique pairings are available even for children which was the first time we saw that during our stay! We opted for the chocolate pairing and it was delicious. We did, however,become a little confused by the severs explanation on how to taste the wine & chocolate.
