I arrived with 2 tour groups and there was only 1 person doing the wine pouring and she lost track of what she had given me each time she came back to me. Too many tasters not enough staff, pity because the wine was good,...More

Thank you for the lovely review of your tasting experience at Thelema. We hope you continue enjoying the wines when back in the UK.

We were told to go to Thelema Mountain Vineyards by a South Africa wine expert. He told us they are making some of the best wines in South Africa, thanks in large measure to their winemaker Rudi Schultz. We thoroughly enjoyed the tasting, as our...More
