We often visit Calitzdorp, and always eat and buy wine and port at De Krans. Good quality food. Excellent wines. Beautiful location, under the vines.

Friendly service and great Chardonnay, nice shiraz, plus they helpfully served some Ciabatta as palate cleansers, worth a stop and sorry we were not able to stay for lunch

After a dissapointing experience at the neighbouring vineyard, we were treated with true Karoo hospitality and even better wines. The friendly attendant was informative and made great recomendations. The bistro and tasting room is beautiful. The prices of the excellent wines are great value.

A good selection of wine and almost feels like you sitting in the vineyard. The staff were really friendly and the one lady was full of jokes and made it a memorable experience

A beautiful stop but unfortunately after sitting there for 20 minutes we had still received no service! However, the setting is gorgeous and the shop has some lovely preserves, fresh peaches and obviously wines for sale. Worth a visit....
