Description:

The exclusive winery of Peter Falke is nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, South Africa. Groenvlei Farm is home to rambling magenta bougainvillea, delicate scented roses and wild lavender growing alongside carefully cultivated vineyards.

Dating back to the 18th century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The stately old homestead is partnered by a "boutique" winery, contemporary wine tasting room and luxurious outdoor lounge which have established Peter Falke Wines as the most elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands.

Owner Peter Falke and his better half, Daniele Gortz, invite you to enjoy the exceptional wines that reflect their lifestyle, cultures and personalities.

The wine, Reuben's incredible knowledge and friendly personality, the extra detail and attention paid during the tasting experience and the divine snack platters made this wine farm a new favourite.

A stunning setting to enjoy a wine tasting and don't be surprised if you stay for a bottle. The rolling green lawn with umbrellas and colourful beanbag chairs invite you to kick your shoes and drink in not only the wine but the amazing Stellenbosch scenery. The snack menu work well with the excellent wine and the service is friendly... More

Yes, it is the socks producer. His farm has been beautifully decorated – indie by his partner and outside by the landscaper Strijdom van der Merwe. The tasting room is bold and modern with bowls of nuts and a hospitable team and an attractive wine maker. Ideal for those seeking a pleasurable afternoon.

I had a wonderful day here for my birthday. HOWEVER, someone with us had food allergies and also eats at specific times in the day. The waiters and manager would not let her bring in her own food in to eat and to celebrate a birthday lunch with us. I thought that was unfair especially because of her allergies. Surely... More

This is the only place you need to know about in Stellies... It's sheer perfection when it comes to the view and watching the sun go down... their wine and cheese platters make a great addition and the service is always of a very high standard. After a lazy day of wine tasting this is the perfect ending... it's also... More

Were at several different wine tastings in Stellenbosch, but this was the best. Not as big and commercial as Ernie Els, but much more satisfying. Wines were so good that I'm going to try to buy them here in Sweden.

We visited Peter Falke on Saturday afternoon, not a planned trip, but a spur of the moment 'lets check this wine estate out'. It was a lovely afternoon, we were greeted by a very helpful young lady, but as it was so nice outside we decided not to do the wine tasting, but she did let us try a couple... More

Absolutely brilliant, this sleek and tasteful winery impresses greatly. Their ruby blend is one of the best I tasted over a weekend of intensive research. The German-born creator of the famous sports-sock can add owning a fantastic vineyard to his glittering resume, and the view made for a brilliant back drop to enthralling conversation. Lizzy kept me and my compatriots... More

This was one of the best wine tasting experiences that we have had. It stays open later than most, the wines were magnificent, the menu fantastic and the staff extremely helpful. Optional to sit inside or out - we opted for outside overlooking rolling lawns and vines. We were given blankets, there were outdoor heaters and the atmosphere was relaxed... More
