Enjoyed doing a braai for the first time ever in my life, delicious lamb. Thats just the food. Had an incredibly peaceful, contemplative and joyful break away from it all. After nearly 6 months in lock down this was a first outing and so worthwhile. Very simple cottage, clean, comfortable and with a log fire to read a book and sip on wine.
We have chosen the perfect place to have our wedding. Not only does Fynbos Estate have exceptional venues, oak trees and accommodation, but it is the people, Diana, Johan and the staff who made our weekend a magical time we will always remember. Jacques went early on to look at Fynbos. He send me the photos and we booked it immediately for the most beautiful winter’s day in August. I was still working in Kazakhstan and emailed Diana with all the questions I had. She responded promptly and assured me that everything will be to my liking. I cannot thank them enough for the ideas and help. My wedding coordinator was in touch and when she came to set up they welcomed her with open arms, helped where they could to prepare everything. Our ceremony was held in The Cellar and dinner at The Perdestal. It was a small wedding of only family. The Perdestal was the perfect choice for an intimate dinner. The Friday the family arrived, Diana and Johan was there to greet us all. The Friday evening we had a wine tasting that Johan organised and we were spoiled for choice tasting all the Dragonridge wines. This was a perfect idea as the guests all decided on the wine for the wedding dinner. The accommodation is divine. We rented all the accommodation at Fynbos for the weekend. All the family got together at the Main House for dinner and breakfasts. So spacious with beautiful facilities, enough fridges for all the wine! The stoep was the drawing point…everyone enjoying family time together around the big table. Our wedding day was magical. Diana was there, every step of the way making sure that everything was on point. The food was prepared with great care. Everything was sent out on time and it was absolutely delicious. There were plenty of food…enough for second and third helpings. The malva poeding was my favourite!! I told my sister at one point before the ceremony that I am not nervous at all…and her response: ‘It is this place! It is so calm and relaxed.’ And that is exactly what Fynbos Estate is…a magical farm with a relaxed atmosphere where one can unwind and smell the fresh air. Where we felt like a part of the Fynbos family. Thank you Diana, Johan and staff for being such a big part in making our wedding truly special!!…
We recently spent three days at Fynbos Estate, where we ran a workshop for 24 people as part of the South African Program for Ecosystem Change and Society. It was really a wonderful venue, with the perfect atmosphere for supporting our work and discussions, and leaving everyone feeling inspired and re-energized. The food was delicious and we experienced very friendly and helpful service. Thanks very much to Diana, Johan and Romayne, we hope to visit again!
We highly recommend this wonderful place. The hosts, Diana and Johan, took good care of us. We had a relaxing stay. We walked in the nearby natural park, which has an amazing fauna, we barbequed, and Johan, the winemaker, guided us through the winery, which was varied and exciting, and tasty! We hope we will be back sometime. This place has a lot of opportunities for different occasions. Thank you for having us! Best regards Monica and Tonny Norway
This winery with its Dragon Wines is the best place to visit for Organic wines and is off the beaten track. A real family wine estate with accommodation and conference center. Johan and his wife are very friendly and have their own nature reserve.
