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. « less

Our group made an unplanned stopped at Peter Falke Winery. Our bus was too big to fit down the narrow driveway so we walked the long path to the main building. Once we walked into the reception area we were warmly greeted by the staff. The space is beautiful with huge chandeliers and bright open spaces. Even though we didn't... More

We arrived at this winery after two others in Stellenbosch had refused to accommodate us for a tasting. What a happy event -- the staff at Peter Falke were very welcoming, and the wines were quite nice. The standard tasting is the five wines in the regular range, and you can taste two more of their high end wines if... More

We stumbled upon this winery towards the end of the day. A small winery with a lovely garden with beanbags and had a very young and trendy feel to it. We tasted 8 wines here for 40 rand (£2.50) and all were very good. They do not serve hot food but they do have platters of cheese and meats which... More

The wine tasting was exciting but even more exciting is the staff talking about their new expectations for the New releases of 2012.

This was the first winery we visited on our trip to the Cape. What a place to start. No expense has been spared with the decor inside and outside the wine tasting facility and it is all in great taste and style. The lady giving us the tasting was so helpful and knowledgeable. This was a great experience for our... More

A lovely winery good staff and a nice tasting experience. Also the only winery to give us complimentary snacks. The outdoor furniture was also extremely comfortable. I could have stayed here all day.

Very good wine tour - the decor has a French chiq to it. Shaun looked after us royally and the cheese and meat platters are all you need for a light lunch. The wine is fine, drinkable and can be quite cheap.

Very modern, which can be refreshing given that we are in the heart of traditional Cape Dutch architecture. There is a fabulous fun seating area outside where you can lounge on big colourful cushions - it's a bit 60's - very groovy! This is a fun place for a tasting, great views of the mountains and chilling with a glass... More
