While the grounds here may not be as impressive as some of the other bigger wineries, the wine and the information provided during the tasting more than makes up for it. Joy is very personable and goes above and beyond with respect to the information...More

Upon arrival we already felt welcome when the cute Jack Russell welcomed us with a friendly tail wagging :-). Fantastic wine and great to have the winemaker explaining the wines and history of the farm. A must visit when in Franschhoek!

This is by far my favourite winery in Franschhoek. You need to make an appointment, but I've always just asked my accommodation to call in the morning and it's never been an issue. Joy does a very good, informative tasting. All the wines are good...More

we have been buying wine from Joy at Stony Brook for many years and the wines are always very interesting and seem to cater for every taste, which is fairly unusual and certainly makes going there for a wine tasting worthwhile! I had no idea...More

This was our second visit to Stony Brook Vineyards and once again we loved it. Superb wines at great value for money. I would recommend that everyone who visits the valley should visit SBV and taste their wines in a friendly authentic family run vineyard...More

We ignored our guidebook advice and turned up unannounced at Stony Brook and were met by the owner (Joy?) who immediately offered us a wine tasting. It was great to have a personalised service, to be able to ask questions and to sample the wine...More
