We had an interesting and pleasant tasting experience at Bezalel. All wines and brandy was tasty, unique, and affordable. Our guide was very informative and spontaneous. The cheese and beer platter was fantastic. Loved the cozy fire and dogs and the staff was friendly.

The service in the tasting room at Bezalel is excellent. We enjoyed the anecdotes of our quirky informative sommelier. The wines may not have been to our personal taste, but the Potstill Brandy was really good. The Rooisbos infused version was really special.

We were well surprised to find wine, brandy and epic liqueur at this little oasis. The brandy was pretty nice and we had a lovely meal at the intimate restaurant while our dogs were allowed to sit with us
