Cosy, rustic wine tasting, in a wonderful mountain/trees setting. The standout, of course, was the wine - especially the whites. I can highly recommend the Sauvignon Blanc, the 'J' (blend of Sauvignon, Viognier and more) and, of course, my favourite, the Ghost Gum white, Chardonnay...More

Went for an impromptu tasting and totally fell in love with the setting. Such an intimate and homey experience, will definitely be recommending to our winey friends. The wines are divine and need to belong in the home cellar :)

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

We visited Stony Brook after having a bottle of their "The Max" wine at Ryan's Kitchen in Franschhoek. We actually e-mailed Stony Brook while we were finishing our dinner to see if we could visit their farm. Joy, the owner, wrote back the next morning...More
