    Wow, wow, wow!!! This exceeded our expectations and more!! The staff are friendly and welcoming. We sat outside - thanks to a beautiful Cape Town day and the view is spectactular!! And then the food.... out of this world delicious, perfectly prepared and just the right amount!! Just loved it!! (I am very fussy about good food - hate spending money on mediocre - but this was miles from mediocre!!) Of course, the wines were delicious and a great compliment to the awesome experience! I would highly recommend but remember to book early!

    We visited the winery for a tasting today and had their Icon tasting menu. Three whites and three reds - all home grown. Expertly and professionally introduced by a young man with loads of passion! Super wines and super experience!

    We were just walking around Stellenbosch when we happened upon the Botanical Gardens. We spent a good 2 hours walking around enjoying the plants, gardens and wildlife. We stopped for a coffee in the shade and were really surprised by how fab it was. I would definitely recommend a visit.

    One of our best wine tastings to date - we arrived early (thinking too early) but we were greeted by very friendly staff and introduced to our host - Lucky. Following some very good wines, he gave us a tour of the winery which was exceptional ... A very cheerful man who made the whole experience better - well done.

    A wonderful place to sample the wines - red- and one of my favourite vineyards. A great place to enjoy wine and lunch under the trees in this idyllic setting!!
    Lunch was only a choice of 3 dishes but was paired with wine.
    In this case, less choice was more and everything was excellent quality.

    We decided to have a lunch and then do the tasting. Nice place, the lunch selections were good, we had the springbok, pork belly, beef and fish. All well presented, as usual, a little too saucy for my liking. Service was good and presentation excellent. We then decided to have a tasting next door, well selection of options, including a brandy tasting. Most enjoyable stop

    We enjoyed a stroll down this historic street, with its grand buildings, smart cafes & restaurants.
    Look out for interesting street art too.

    We had dinner at Claras Barn last night and it was amazing!! We did the wine pairing menu. Every course was absolutely delicious!
    Bianca and Christian were fantastic hosts. Both had an excellent knowledge of the food and wines.
    The decor in the restaurant, which were the old stables was very tastefully done. The setting of the restaurant overlooking the dam with a fantastic sunset view was spectacular!
    I can highly recommend this restaurant for a fantastic dining experience!

    What a wonderful experience at Delheim assisted by August as our Wine Expert. The setting and atmosphere were outstanding.

    The restaurant was an added bonus.

    We enjoyed a delicious wine tasting/cheese board one afternoon here. The views over the vineyard are magical as are the mountains in the distance. The wines were delicious and the service very nice.

    Edina was a lovely waitress, she made us feel very welcome and special. She made extra effort for us. The chocolate tasting and pizza tasting was a nice experience.

    What an incredibly perfect location for tasting wine! My wife and I just enjoyed the breathtaking views and wines this estate has to offer. I would absolutely return and we fully intend on shipping some wine home. The wines are truly unique and highly crafted. I cannot say enough good things about the young man (with the old soul) who served us and explained the wonders of this special place. HIGHLY recommend.
