This place is an absolute favourite of mine! They have the best, full bodied wines accompanying their biltong and cheese platters. The staff are friendly and quite knowledgeable of wines. They also offer online ordering as well, so no matter where in the world you are, you are able to spoil yourself! The only thing that tops both the fantastic... More

There are not many wine estates that get a perfect 5 stars from us, but the excellent quality of their wines, phenomenal service and overall experience deserves a 5 star rating from us.

Some of the best wines I've had the pleasure of tasting in quite a while. French-style blends on South African vineyards: what is not to absolutely devour?! Subtle and sophisticated wines presented by passionate, knowledgeable people in a small setting with ample sun. PS Their red has been served to both The Queen of England and the late Mr Mandela....

Visited as part of a wine tour .when we arrived we were surprised by the state of the tasting area in felt hollow and echoey. The wines we tasted were not very good ,only the flag ship one hit the spot . Compared to Simonsig and Delheim it's not worth going . And it's so expensive at 60 rand per... More

Dear Anonpeo, I was alerted to your review yesterday and truth be told, we are dejected at the farm to receive a 1 star rating - a first for us. An absolute disaster for the team and in light of the efforts put in, climbing to such heady heights on the Tripadvisor site. I must commend your tour guide/operator on... More

Went back a week later for a tasting and was most immpressed by the... More

We had a nice hour here tasting some of their blends as well as eating some biltong. Their was one that was served to the Queen and Nelson Mandela. If it was good enough for them it will suit us too. It was definitely a treat and our big splurge. The person serving us was knowledgeable but he was from... More

We stayed here for one night. It is a really nice place. Our room had an amazing bathroom with 2 showers, 2 sinks and a bath. The room itself was spacious and our bed comfy. However there are no proper curtains so it gets really bright in the morning. The warm breakfast next morning was cooked freshly, there were about... More
