This was our second visit to Stellenbosch and the DeWaal Winery had the best overall selection of wines we tried. The whites were crisp and refreshing; the reds were elegant and complex. I'm normally not a fan of pinotage, but the DeWaal pinotages made me a believer. The location is down a small road, but you can easily combine a visit here with the DeMorgenzen winery and the Jordan winery. I highly recommend the DeWaal winery, followed by Jordan, but go to DeMorgenzen to see the gardens.

The vineyard is close to Stellenbosch. We were there on a beautiful sunny Saturday morning for wine tasting. They have 2 options for tasting, 50 Rand and 100 rand both with five wines. Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and a blend and some other stuff.

Our group of so called “ wine club” members had an absolute Whale / Waal of a time at De Waal, doing The Top of The Hill walk with owner Pieter De Waal. Everything that the previous reviewers so carefully described is true and we all can only confirm that this is one of the best wine experiences you will have in Stellenbosch. The dedication, expertise, knowledge and great personality of Pieter is a rare find in current times - where personal touch and care for the customer - is hard to find. The whole experience with the walk, the cheese platter and wine tasting was absolute value for money.

Thank you so much for the lovely feedback, Pieter Marais! We are pleased that your group had such a pleasant experience in our beautiful surroundings at the farm. We are even more excited that our Top of the Hill Walk made it high up on your list, as "one of the best wine experiences" in Stellenbosch. It will be great to welcome you back to De Waal Wines soon.

An absolutely wonderful morning / early afternoon spent in the very pleasant company of Pieter Dewaal, owner of Dewaal Wines in Stellenbosch. We walked with him through vineyards of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Rubinet and, of course the oldest block of Pinotage in the world. Pieter regaled us with stories from his past, stories of wine growing, a huge amount of info about grapes (most of which I can't recall but found very interesting nevertheless!), and we drank his Top of the Hill Pinotage under the canopy of a magnificent tree before returning to the farmhouse for a fabulous lunch of cheese and bread, accompanied with a tasting of four more of this super vineyard's wines. It was also fun to taste the grapes as we walked through the fields. The company (3 from SA, 2 from the Rhein valley in Germany) was great too. A very convivial occasion and another highlight of our trip. Thank you very much Pieter!

There is few things as exciting as finding special hidden gems that you didn't realize where there. This is the case with DeWaal. What a pleasure all round, exceptional wines, especially the pinotage that is far better than the price would suggest. Great staff, all so friendly and welcoming and a stunning setting a beautiful old farm in a gorgeous part of the country.
