About
Ormonde Private Cellar is situated on the West Coast of South Africa, where the rugged Darling hills roll and fall along the contours of an ancient granite intrusion. These molten rocks, forced from the earth to 300m above sea level, guard the Atlantic Ocean while banks of fog bless the vineyard with coolness and moisture. Proprietor Theo Basson embraces the legacy left to him by his father Nico Basson and his grandfathers before him. The appreciation for accumulated knowledge and attention to detail are principles Theo vows to when asked about the various accolades Ormonde has been awarded. Ormonde is proud to house in it's stable two Old Mutual trophies, as well as various Platinum, Gold and Double Gold medals over the years to mention but just a few. Wines tasted at the tasting room are exclusively available from the estate and selected restaurants. The serene atmosphere and personal experience at Ormonde promise our guests a memorable experience.

Top class wine in a beautiful setting.
Come relax under the trees and enjoy the view over the pond.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff leads you through the tasting of fine wines.

We were met by the owners wife, Berinda, who explained the wines and set up for tasting. Berinda was informative and interesting. We sat outside and were warned about miggies, small insects. We decided to have lunch and chose the platter - delicious variety and enough for two. Before the red wine tasting the miggies were bad and we chose to go inside, no problem a table was found for us. Again Berinda gave us advise about the red wines and spent time chatting to us as we have traveled and visited overseas vineyards. The whole experience was excellent and we will definitely be back. The wine was also excellent and we bought quite a bit!!!

I just want say this , that I'm disgusted with your service. We as a group visited your farm today and was not impressed by the welcome. No staff to help out on something simple like information on wine. Something like a fly in the glass , your staff member empties out the glass and refills the same glass with out rinsing the glass. ( Disgusted )

Didn’t stay for lunch but the platters looked amazing!
Nice tables under the trees and a couple of picnic spots next to a dam (great for kids).
Did the wine tasting and bought some bottles to take home.

What a surprise! We had a cheese platter - wow it was great. Experience waterblommetjie and cheese quiche with a variety of meats and cheeses. Friendly staff and the wine tasting very well organised. A must visit on route to West Coast.

We had an absolutely delightful wine tasting and lunch at Ormonde wine farm. The wine is delicious and the lunch platters are fabulous. Tasty and beautifully presented. Will definitely visit again.

We visited Ormonde for lunch platters after our flower tour and it was a highlight. Excellent service. Scrumptious platters!

The whole experience was amazing! They were very responsive on social media and the staff were super friendly at the wine farm. The estate is also stunning with some of the best wines I have ever had. I would recommend this wine farm to anyone. If you want a fun wine experience then I would say make your way to Darling.

Visited Ormonde the first weekend after alcohol ban was lifted in August. They were really busy. Berinda and Theo (Owners) were there helping and chatting to customers, making everybody feel at home. And yes, they have great wines and the snacks looked really nice (we only had the wine tasting). I love the fact that each wine has its own label on the tasting glass, so that you can remember which one you are tasting. WILL BE BACK for a broodjie! Dankie Berinda, Sal weer kom kuier!
