Beautiful landscape
Apr 2021
Beautiful landscape and not to mention the view.
Once you park or sit down outside or inside there is an incredible breathtaking view of Table Mountain and surrounding ocean.

Wine tasting is done with the top class that you would expect from a top class vineyard such as De Grendal.
Hosting of the wine tasting, pouring of the wine and explaining of the wine was an all out excellent experience.

Dinner
Apr 2021 • Friends
I had dinner at de Grendel many times before. Everytime the quality of food, service and wine was excellent. This time however there where no complains about the food but the service was not as it is use to be, the fine dining standard was not there anymore.
For instance:
One wooden plate on which the bread was served was only removed at the end of the dinner. The sideplates where not removed after the starter.
We had to ask three times for ice cubes. A bottle of wine was poured in glasses without tasting it before.
The cheese desert was served without plates.
As usual the wine was excellent. Maybe it is the blame of Covid19. but I
hope the old standard will be reached after this review. There is a lack of training the staff

Wine Tasting
Feb 2021
Popped through to this gorgeous Wine Estate for an impromptu tasting. We had the pleasure of being hosted by Simeon who not only made us feel at home but provided us with an extremely informative tasting. Simeon - to you a big thank you. Your knowledge of the Estate and the Wines was impressive. Of course, coupled with this is the magnificent view that one can appreciate as you sip these lovely wines. I am now a club member and will most certainly be back.

Family Christmas Eve Wine-Tasting at An Awesome Venue!
Dec 2020
…..Final-lii we are here as we tried to get in before but we were turned away because we did not have an appointment. The entrance gate is manned permanent-lii were you have to report in to verify your appointment than each occupant in the vehicle must have their temperature checked and recorded. Its a breathtaking ride to the Tasting-rooms very picturesque and very well maintained grounds. Once you arrive at the parking area which is clean and impressive and when you look out towards Table Mountain you are blown away by the awesome panoramic view. The tasting room offers inside or outside seating and on a beautiful day like today there is only one place to be sitting and that definite-lii outside. Our host welcomed us cordial-lii and made us feel at home before explaining to us what will be happening and apologised that they were short on menu-cards but did offer us one copy. He was on point and was absolute-lii knowledgable. We choose the Flagship Tasting @ R 120.00 per person which gave you five tastings. 1, 2017 Cap Classique “Brut” 2, 2019 Koetshuis “Sauvignon Blanc” 3, 2020 Op Die Berg “Chardonnay” 4, 2018 Op Die Berg “Pinot Noir” 5, 2016 Rubaiyat. With each tasting served the content the wine was explained and a bit of the background added to the explanation. The wines were of excellent quality and the awesome views just sealed a magical time spent here for us. We high-lii recommend this establishment and ask that you make a point of visiting here……

Visited the place with friends from east Africa. It was a great experience. We enjoyed the excellent explanations on origins of all the wines we tasted. Very affordable prices.

Consistent and a Classic
Sep 2019
Wine Tasting at De Grendel Wine Estate is always a wonderful affair. The ambience is relaxed but upmarket and the staff are friendly, informative and pure bliss to chat with.

I finally was able to try their Gourmet Selection which, in simple terms, is a breadboard curated by you the diner with the most delicious savoury treats.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Flagship tasting (R110) whilst my partner enjoyed the Premium tasting (R90). My favourite wine from the Premium tasting was the 2019 Viognier.

An Estate Not to Be Missed
Jan 2020 • Friends
We visited this Estate on the recommendation of a friend in Vancouver Canada who had met the Cellar Master on vacation in Turkey. We were expecting a nice holiday experience but nothing prepared us for how outstanding the wines from this Estate are! In particular the Chardonnay and Syrah are brilliant in a surprisingly French style. Makes us sad that they are not yet available in Canada - here’s hoping. The winery is a short drive from the V & A waterfront and well worth the trip. We tried 12 wines and bought several - many thanks to Eric who ably conducted our tastings. Seriously, this place is not to be missed!
