I stayed at the Dornier Homestead for a night and was very, very pleasantly surprised by the Dornier estate. The house itself is an old colonial building that has recently (and tastefully) been refurbished but which still has many of its original fittings. The winery and restaurant serve a great selection of food and offer excellent wine tasting (which is... More

We had a 80th birthday celebration with 21 people for lunch. The staff were friendly and professional. The service was excellent. The food was good, with all 21 of us served at the same time. We can highly recommend a visit to Dornier, Bodega restaurant, for a large party. The setting is beautiful too.

Having noticed that Dornier was seventh on the top 12 architecturally designed wine estates in the world a stop was necessary. Wonderful service, from an extremely knowledgeable server. We were introduced to their tapas with a bottle of wine. Perfect combination with a perfect view over the estate and the majestic mountains in the background. Wonderful wine. This was my... More

Went here for lunch and did some wine tasting as well. The food was ok, no more no less and the wine tasting was alright. We tried five wines and they served them all in the same glass. Would have been nine with a new glass at least when you go from a white wine to a red.

Our party of 4 adults and 3 children spent 2 nights at the Dornier Homestead, since our son was celebrating his 40th birthday party at Dornier restaurant. While the large celebration was a huge success, and the food and service impeccable, the same cannot be said of the accommodation. We opted for staying on the estate because of the convenience,...

There is nothing interesting or outstanding about this place. The effort from the waiter to provide anything but to pour the wine was zero. Some irritation when we didn't know from start exactly which wines we wanted to taste. Had to drag information from the waiter. Left feeling like a waste of time.

We visited here on our tour through South Africa. We took a private wine tour with a driver and stopped at 5 wineries in the area. We chose to have lunch at Dornier Wine Estate, and the view and ambiance was lovey. The service was great, the wine was flowing and the food was lovely. I am so glad we... More

With great food and very nice wines, this winery is really worth visiting. The views are stunning and there is a nice kids playground. It is set up in a small way, allowing one to keep an eye on the kids, while enjoying the wine (what is not possible in every winery).

Our group was quickly seated and served by the attendant, with wines being adequately - if a little perfunctorily - described before choice. A pleasant variety of tasting options was available, with the wines all satisfactory, although none overwhelmingly memorable.
