Middelvlei

Middelvlei, Stellenbosch: Address, Phone Number, Middelvlei Reviews: 4.5/5

About
The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

We went early and went walking through the Estate. The decor was inspiring. Restaurant menu has a lot to offer. South African food!! While we were there the was another group enjoying the Set braai menu. Tourist buses arriving and cycling of people just enjoying the Estate.

Full marks for hospitality, food and environment
Oct 2019 • Couples
Driving up to this winery on the outskirts of Stellenbosch is like approaching a farm. When we visited in the springtime, there was a choice of indoor and outdoor tables. If, like us, you want to eat outdoors and fully enjoy the surrounding farmland and animals, then you will have to make another choice. You can go with
lunch at one of the tables out on the grass or under the verandah, depending on how much sun you want beaming down on you. You will be offered a choice of three barbecue-focused options - the standard, the vegetarian or the low carb option. We went with the standard, meat-based option to accompany our wine tasting (4 wines which you choose from the Middelvlei range). A yummy soft bread with their own fish spread, butters and strawberry jam was the starter. Chicken, lamb and sausage with salads followed - along with the highlight, a very delicious, light pumpkin beignet-style fritter, and the item we most wanted to experience once, a Braaibroodjies (which actually turns out to be a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich, just done on the barbecue). Ben was a great host and talked us through the different wines we chose. All together, a top experience of hospitality, food and a very relaxing environment.

Fantastic experience
Apr 2019 • Family
If you love wine, South African food and have young children, this is the place to visit. We decided on our trip to do some wine tastings and enjoy the beautiful Stellenbosch scenery at various Wine Estates. It is however not always easy to keep the kids entertained.
What makes Middelvlei so special, is that they do a kids “wine tasting.” Our kids were engaging and felt really part of the whole experience. They were tasting different sparkling juices. The tasting box also include sweets. Then there’s a play area for them to burn off some energy and various farm animals to keep them entertained while the adults enjoy their wine and the beautiful scenery.
We did not have the time for food, but the menu looked amazing.
We had an amazing experience and will definitely recommend this family friendly wine estate to anyone visiting the area.

Great place
Apr 2019 • Family
We booked the boerebraai in advance as we were with 4 adults and 4 children. Age 8 till 5. They were really friendly in every way. There is a lot to do for the kids: playground, steps, outdoor xl-games under a giant umbrella to make sure the kids are in the shade. There are animals you can watch: turtles, goat, sheep, Walibi's,...We arrived at 12 am for the braai and at 14.45 we did the scootours ride, afterwards we got a glass of wine and a warm sandwich with ham and cheese. The kids got an icecream-drink and hamburger with fries. I recommand this to al families with children!

Thank you very much for spending the day with us. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting you.( apologies that our sheep was not his friendly self!) With all the open space available children visiting Middelvlei can enjoy themselves without affecting the experience of other visitors. Hope to welcome you back one day!

Very uncommercialised - and all the better for it!

We came wanting both wine tasting and something to eat. We sampled the meat and vegetarian braais- both delicious and plentiful (sweet pumpkin fritters - fantastic) - and we sampled our own choice of four of their excellent wines.
An altogether wonderful experience- highly recommended.

Phone in advance to not be dissapounted

The website and the actual farm experience are two different things. There is no opening times on there website and facebook states from 8. Don't expect to get there at 9 and even be able to order a cooldrink. As far as feeding the farm animals, don't think that exists either. Staff are unfriendly. Food is not great either. The only good thing is the kiddies play area with a big selection of toys. It is however near to the fire and coffee on fire and it seems no one cares when a little one comes near

Thank you very much for your feedback. At Middelvlei we give personal attention to our customers' needs and expectations and we set our standards high. I am disappointed to learn that your experience was not aligned with our normal level of service. I will make sure that the opening times are more clearly stated on the website and social media and that clear distinction is made between the opening times of the office, wine tasting and the restaurant. I highly value our guests’ feedback and your rating is extremely important to you. Regards Jeanneret Momberg
