About
The head-office of Orange River Cellars is located in Upington, a town in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. The wine grapes of Orange River Cellars originate from ±850 producers all along the Orange River, also known as the Great Gariep River. These pockets of vineyard land stretch over a distance of more than 300 kilometres between Groblershoop and Blouputs. The terroir (geophysical and micro-climatical) diversity of this unequalled thirstland, translates into the production of cultivar and blended wines of inimitable variation insofar as aromatic and taste are concerned. Orange River Cellars offers an extensive range of dry white, natural sweet and dry red, as well as dessert wines. Visit our Tasting Centre in Upington today!!

Wowwwww what an amazing place! We were welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. We bought some wine and had dinner.

The food was out of this world. Me and my dad had the calamari and rib combo both was super tender and tasteful. My husband had the eisbein and he was super pleased (not always easy with eisbein).

Our waiter Shahina (hope I remember her name correctly) was super friendly and helpful.
She had beautiful smile and was efficient.

We will definitely be back again.

Good maskedel. Absolutely awesome sweet wines. Opens too late but that's their plan. Thank you for a great tasting.
Sadly we heard you owed a few farmers for their grapes.
I loved out host, but maybe don't smoke before meeting us

We were pleasantly surprised, firstly with the location of the tasting room and restaurant.
It was a wonderful experience to taste all the wines of our choice and also to enjoy a delicious, affordable lunch. Wine prices were also fair.
A place we will definitely visit more in the future.
Thank you very much.

Had the best experience here! Me and my partner did some wine pairing. Our waitress was so helpful & kind. She adjusted her language to meet ours, she was so professional and she knew the menu & ingredients very well - Loretta if I'm not mistaken.

I was surprised at the pricing of the menu as it's so affordable & inexpensive for the amount you get. The food was amazing. The drinks were amazing. Overall an amazing experience and would definitely recommend and even visit again. Thank you guys!!!

Unfortunately we waited over an hour for our lunch. And when it arrived, the burger and cordon bleu were delicious. The curry was very short of actual curry and sauce and the platter was cold.
The wine is delicious. Walked away with 2 cases but service and food need attention. Expected more from a wine tasting establishment.

Great tastings of wine, brandy and gin, with wide variety at reasonable prices. Bottles of your favourites available for purchase or delivery. Excellent kitchen at bargain prices. Try the chicken coconut curry.
