Our tasting of premium wines was guided by knowledgeable and friendly staff. The wow factor of walking into the architecturally designed cellar door, which maximizes the backdrop of rugged mountains, is unparalleled and not to be missed. We were very fortunate to meet Thomas who...More

Sensational spot and vino - this is one of the great spots in Stellenbosch. Do yourself a favour and go there. If you don't, you'll miss one of the best farms in the area. Just do it.

Hello Philbamber, thank you for your review. Are you sure that you did a tasting at Thelema Mountain Vineyards? We are a family owned winery at the top of Helshoogte Pass with a rather modern tasting room.

This is the best tasting room in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and not only for the wines. Other tasting rooms are going through the motions. R60 for your 5 sips - cold and callous. The Thelema staff said not to worry about the number of tastes...More

Cute family owned winery. Enjoyed their cabs and was a big fan of the new rose they recently launched at their sister vineyard (Sutherland).

Those who know Thelema wines will be already aware of how well balanced and sumptuous their wine range is but a visit to the vineyard is a treat. The tastings are well conducted and very informative. If you don't know just ask. The setting is...More
