    With the exception of 2021, we have been coming to South Africa now for 11 years and our very first port of call on every occasion is Vergelegen and The Stables Restaurant
    It is a stunningly beautiful place to visit and there is little doubt that since we were last there in March 2020, there have been some major changes, all for the better I might add, under the guidance of Wayne Coetzer, the new Managing Director.
    It is truly hard to fault the experience of a visit here and this time we were accompanied by our own kids and grandkids and they became as bewitched by the place as we have always been! In fact the last place they wanted to visit before their return home was Vergelegen.
    You run out of superlatives but I have to give special mention to the staff in Stables Restaurant who are always so warm and friendly. Particular mention to Glen and lovely Nourane who welcome us everytime like long lost friends.
    Vergelegen will always remain the first and last place we visit on our annual trip to South Africa and we look forward to 2023 in anticipation of what further changes have been made.
    If I was to highlight any disappointment by the way, it would be being unable to attend this year's RMB Starlight Classic due to Covid and the reduced guest numbers who are by invite only! This is such a wonderful event to attend and missing it two years in a row is a bitter blow.
    Keep up the great work Mr Coetzer and team and continue to make this the most awesome place to visit.

    Wonderful wine tasting. Very knowledgable guide through the wines.
    Then had a beautiful and very tasty lunch, in beautiful settings.
    Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

    Brilliant wine tasting and food experience with outstanding views.
    What a treat Waterkloof was. The tasting room is sublimely decorated and the view from the deck was excellent. We each had the very reasonably priced 6 wine tasting menu with a shared platter which all came to a little on R450.
    Our server, Kudzai was outstanding. She was the perfect blend of attentive without being annoying. She seemed to appear with a fresh bottle at exactly the right time. She is an absolute asset

    Aphiwe served us and her service ensured that our visit was top notch, so much so that we left with bottles of wine and will be ordering more online. Beautiful wine, beautiful views and wonderful service. Vibes all the way.

    Awesome wine and great service! Hidden gem but worth the money and time. Selection for every taste. Out of the way but go there

    When I did my very first wine tasting at Onderkloof with a friend, I was suprised at not only the diversity of wines this boutique cellar has to offer, but also the quality. Spectacular Helderberg’s ocean and mountain views offer the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and informative wine tasting.

    We booked a wine tasting at Journey's End because friends had organised a charity event in the UK featuring the wines and we were double booked so could not attend. This was the next best thing. Mike the winemaker, gave us detailed instructions on how to reach the vineyard, the name is the clue, it is accessed up a shaky track but you are rewarded with lovely views and a sense of remoteness. This is very much a working vineyard (tastings by appointment) and we were pleased that Mike gave us so much of his time, explaining the background, the wines, and generally being engaging. We were so pleased we went out of our way to visit JE and wish everyone there happy winekmaking!

    Ummmmm. a bit of a mixed reception here. The food as always is amazing at the welcome warm but I think we had a trainee waitron so the menu knowledge and service ability was lacking. Nonetheless still a great experience. Wine have become pricy.
