De Krans Wine Cellar is situated along the upper reaches of the picturesque Gamka River Valley near Calitzdorp. The history of the farm dates back to 1890, when it was bought by the Nel family. Since 1985, most of the classic Portuguese port and wine varieties have been planted. De Krans is widely known as one of the leading port producers, as well as one of the most innovative cellars in South Africa. The Farm offers daily wine tasting, a country style bistro and a deli offering products either produced on the farm or sourced from local artisans.

Beautiful vineyard with wine tasting of 6 wines for R35 which is waivered if you buy a bottle. Lovely outdoor seating under the cover of vine leaves, overlooking the huge beautiful vineyard. The bistro offers food which is highly recommended and looked delicious, but we weren't hungry at this stage. We particularly enjoyed the Pinotage Rose and the Sauvignon Blanc.... More

Lovely place for families. The wines & port are suburb and the lunch was lovely.....when it arrived. The venue sits 70-80 people but they can't cope with half this. The service was disappointing given how great the tasting experience was. ( we waited over 1 hour for salad & never got the bread we ordered .You would get another star... More

What a lovely surprise, off the beaten track. We did a tasting - absolutely loved the pink port and the cab sauv. Amazing value for money wines, too. Extremely well priced. For lunch we both had the ostrich burger, which was fantastic.

Excellent food well priced, friendly service. Trotters and tripe traditional South African food (afval in Afrikaans) as good as you can get. Pulled pork also excellent.

We had been told the Krans now does lunch and that they were the best in town. It is located just outside of the centre of Calitizdorp, in the middle of the vineyard. We had an outside reservation (where you sit covered by the vines), but the winds were so gusty that we had to move inside, which was also... More

We did a wine tasting at De Krans on a Tuesday. Their bistro is closed on a Tuesday. Not your typical cultivars of wines on offer - a large variety of Portuguese wines which forms the basis of their ports. What this winery is able to produce from this arid part of South Africa are true diamonds!
