Specialists.
Specialist in Red wines and red meats. This is the reason to visit, if this is not your thing then probably give R&V a miss. The service is polite and swift even on a busy day. Tastings and lunch tables are interspersed which creates great ambience. You cannot fault the winemaker nor chef on the grill. A great lunch with memorable wines.

An excellent lunch and wine tasting
Mar 2020
What a lovely vineyard. The wines are wonderful and the food is excellent. I had one of the best steaks that I have ever had. The staff are attentive and friendly. They certainly know their wines, which isn't always the case! The grounds are stunning. We had a really relaxing time here. Well worth a visit.

Scenery was amazing, but the tasting was abit disappointing.

It started with no glasses being changed, and it being reused for 5 different wines, with no water to even rinse out the glass.

Overall a great spot but would but the tasting quality can be improved

Winemaker's Lunch on a Sunday afternoon
Mar 2020
Five of us had the winemaker's lunch this afternoon. One cannot reserve a table so we rocked up at 12.15.
The venue is attractive and is situated in pretty surroundings. There are enough parking bays for everyone.
We sat on the terrace, which was very pleasant. Our waiter was excellent : friendly and attentive.
There are two choices : either steak or salmon, each served with a glass of wine. My steak was exactly as ordered and delicious and was accompanied by French fries and a salad. Excellent - and so was the wine. Those that ordered the salmon were equally enthusiastic. We rounded off the meal with coffee and went home highly delighted.

Class joint

Very nice tasting facility and beautiful grounds. Wines are top end unfortunately I think they’re a little over priced and wine tasting also on the pricey side. But perhaps they’re pitching to a select clientele. Nonetheless a lovely place with very attentive and professional staff.

Lovely estate, pricey though
Feb 2020
One of the most beautiful tasting rooms I have ever come across. Sitting in the cellar was quite the experience, but weather permitting outside is also very nice. The lady helping us was very knowledgeable and friendly, and had a lot of passion for the wines. Just a pity that their tastings are quite expensive not even to mention the wine. Definitely not somewhere to go shop if you are on a budget.

Winemakers lunch
Jan 2020
We had a fantastic wine tasting done by Sune who was excellent! After that we stayed for the lunch which was either Salmon with a glass of Donkiesbaai Chenin or a Sirloin steak with a glass of Syrah. It was amazing! What a special place sitting under the trees gazing out at the beautiful gardens. An absolute must!!

Best winemakers lunch
Dec 2019
We are coming here for over five years. Whenever we had lunch it was simply amazing and it was always an eyeful to see how passionate the young students /waiters were at what they were doing. They simply loved being there and working as they never did anything else their whole life. My favorite spot is on the deck.
