This working wine farm has a tranquil atmosphere with panoramic mountain and vineyard views, and scenic hikes with Table Bay and Mountain visible in the distance. This area is rich in indigenous fynbos and four species are unique to the Paardeberg mountain - Babiana noctiflora, Erica hippuris, Oscularia paardebergenis and Serruria roxberghii. This historic farm was originally named Vondeling, from whence the wines take their name. It was granted to Swedish immigrant Oloff Bergh by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1704. Shady oak trees surround the graciously restored original Farm House, built in 1750. The farm has a three-centuries-old winemaking tradition dating back to the early 1700's. Vondeling invites you to visit our recently renovated tasting room in the exciting, yet unspoilt Voor-Paardeberg region. The planning for the tasting room began in 2011 with the purchase of the neighbouring farm and its facilities. The existing cellar and tasting centre were updated and renovated, complete with traditional style thatched roof and large 'stoep' where guests can enjoy the fine views of the Paardeberg. Visitors can pre-book a generous farm style Vintner's Platter which they can enjoy at the tasting room with a delicious bottle of Vondeling wine. For groups of 10 or more, we are happy to create a delicious, homemade set menu to suit your needs. We also cater for larger group bookings and our hospitality team will work with you to host any event imaginable, from family reunions to corporate conferencing. With the addition of St Clement's, a charming country chapel, we are also able to host weddings for up to 200 people. The tasting room is open for wine tasting Monday to Friday from 10.00am till 17.00pm and on Saturdays and Sundays by appointment. Booking for our Vintner's Platter or set menu meal options is essential.

The vineyard and guest house are unbelievable. The lodge has eight bedrooms, with all amenities and finishing touches. Self catering, but the owners are happy to stock the fridge for you. Super impressed.

Vondeling Wines hosted my grandmother's 80th birthday lunch with a delicious three course meal that offered traditional Afrikaans fare paired with fantastic Vondeling wines. With a log fire burning and a lovely wine-farm atmosphere it made for a wonderful lunch.

Went here for sunday lunch and it was very good. The wine was very good too. Staff were excellent and friendly. We were the last to leave so perhaps that tells how much we enjoyed it.
