We really wanted to like this winery as it is part-owned by the workers unlike most of the wineries in the area. However it seemed to have been adversely affected by the drought as everything looked arid and dusty. We’d booked a picnic and had...More

We dropped in for a breakfast and were told that they had only recently started to serve food. The weather was fine so we could eat outside at spacious tables with stunning views. We were fascinated by the music museum (Music van de Caab) showing...More

This is the last stop on the purple tram route. Good wines with several tasting options and a shop where they sell cured meats and a few cheeses. We brought some pinotage and fennel salami and that was divine! The wines were a broader range...More

We were very disappointed with the food. The quantities were very little, not a big variety, looked unappetizing and not great quality. One tiny roosterkoek per person, with no butter and the rest not much better! We have done most wine farm picnics around Stellenbosch...More

I already allowed extra time to stay at this, the last stop on the Purple Route on the wine tram. I was particularly drawn to the Social History Museum here, which was fascinating (there's also a Music Museum). They have a nice shop selling cheese...More
