Stunning views and dessert wine
Dec 2019
This is now our go-to winery to buy dessert wines to take home, and each time we visit it's lovely to see the establishment developing. The outdoor suspended tasting area is fabulous and the views across the magnificent vines and mountains awesome.
The dessert wine was (is!) as good as we remembered.

Excellent Set Up
Jan 2020
We were taken here by our guide on a walking tour of the region. The set up inside is extremely professional and the tasting room especially well set out. The wines were very good and the presentation and explanation also top notch. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful, peaceful setting
Feb 2020
Thelema turned out to be one of our favourite vineyards that we visited. We were staying nearby and chose to spend a day by walking across to the 2 local vineyards. We had a delighful 20/30 minute stroll down the winding dusty road through the huge estate at Thelema, absorbing the amazing views across the rows and rows of vines. We sat in the new indoor purpose built tasting room, which has an outside balcony area and relaxed for the best part of 2 hours enjoying the wines, so much that we are awaiting a delivery at home of some we purchased. If we have one small criticism, it's that the outside setting under trees and shade is so lovely it's a shame tastings no longer take place outdoors, but we guess they are just keeping up with the competition.

Thank you very much for the visit and wonderful rating of our estate. We appreciate your feedback and thoughts. Regarding the tastings outdoors, this was only a temporary solution for the disruption that was caused by the expansion of our brand new tasting room. We are always looking of improving the experience for our guests and will continue to think of new ways to utilize the space and view of our new tasting room. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Awesome Hidden Place
Jan 2020 • Couples
Went as sort of spur of the moment tasting and were very happy!! Best stop of our day with a beautiful, modern tasting room and awesome wines. You also get two for the price if one as they serve wines from Thelema (Stellenbosh) and Southerland (Elgin). If you like Pinot noir, they have “nailed it” and have a great Shiraz as well. Definitely fun to compare grapes from the two regions! Must stop on your wine tour!!

Beautiful surroundings but disappointing wines
Jan 2020 • Couples
I’ve tasted Thelema red wine many years ago and was very impressed, so we decided to visit the estate this time and the expectations were high. The estate has a beautiful access road through vineyards with a beautiful view of the Hells Hoogte mountains. The wine tasting, however, disappointed me. I normally buy at least one bottle after tastings, but walked away without buying anything. It wasn’t the Thelema I remembered.

Dear Kobus, thank you for the feedback. Was it the presentation of the wines that disappointed you or the actual taste of the wine itself? If you are ever planning to be in the area again, please email me at marketing@thelema.co.za and I will arrange for our winemaker to taste through our wines with you.

Beautiful location
Jan 2020 • Friends
Thelema is at the top of the valley and has stunning views from the tasting area. You drive through vineyards to reach them and the tasting area is modern and tasteful. Excellent wines on offer for tasting and great information from the staff. I did not realise until I paid that they discount the tasting prices off anything you buy, so came away with an excellent MCC for next to nothing, which we later enjoyed by the pool at our hotel

We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the tasting and experience on our farm. Please visit us again soon for some Cap Classique, it keeps getting better and better with each vintage. ;)

Stunning views and great wine
Jan 2020 • Couples
First of all the newly made tasting room has fantastic views(as per photo) could sit there all day drinking their fine wine. Special mention to Diaan also, his knowledge and passion for the wine really shone through and suggested some great tasting options. Would definitely visit again

Super tasting and great views
Dec 2019 • Couples
We hadn’t booked, but we’re welcomed and had a choice of tables inside or out. The tasting offers you 6 wines for R60 and this is refunded against a purchase. You can’t choose the 6 you want to taste. All the team were knowledgeable and friendly and the wines were great. The views from the balcony are pretty too. Worth a visit.

Exceptional experience!
Aug 2019
Thelema was our second winery visit on our 10th Wedding Anniversary trip to Cape Town and the service and warmth we experienced there was absolutely world-class. Our host, Crescenda was truly exceptional in her welcome as well as her knowledge of the Thelema and Sutherland wine range. And this after I had changed our tasting time three times! Gyles Webb, the owner also came out to say hello 21 years after I met him on a plane and was gracious enough to talk wine, rugby and all other topics that flow when you have a great glass of wine in your hand. He also gave us some one-off 2005 Shiraz to taste and some 1994 Cab Sauv. As if this was not enough, he gave us an anniversary gift to take home. Thank you to all of you for helping create the perfect 10th Anniversary day for my wife and I.

Pleasantly surprised
Aug 2019 • Business
Absolutely beautiful place. The service was superb and of course the wine delicious. Very friendly and warm environment. Can’t wait until the deck is open as Thelma has a very unique view of the Mountain range, you feel tucked in with just magnificent views. The wines are delicious. I highly recommend doing the 6 tasting and wanted to say well done to Temba, his knowledge and enthusiasm was delightful, his smile and personality added to the superb wines.
