My Husband and I were really looking forward to a picnic at Mooiplaas. The few ingredients we did get were of fairly good quality. However, we were very disappointed with the lack of variety within the picnic baskets - certainly nothing like the picture of the picnic on their website! Not even a dessert (unless you count the little jar... More

Visited the farm with friends in Feb 2014. What a lovely place with a very inviting atmosphere. The winemaker gave us a wine tasting, which we found very interesting. We enjoyed the picnic outside overlooking the vineyards and enjoying nature!True hidden gem!

Mooiplaas is not a commercial wine estate - it has a wonderful charm about it and the setting is lovely. The tasting room used to be the stables and the feed / water troughs have been turned into decorative features. Maureen is an absolute delight - friendly, knowledgeable, professional - she made us feel welcome and comfortable immediately as we... More

You won't even know its there. If you turn off the main road you drive up a dirt road with trees and vineyards at either side and once you reach the main estate you cannot even see the residential suburbs anymore. Like a little oasis of calm on the outskirts of the growing northern suburbs of greater Cape Town. The... More

A stunning setting in the middle of the vineyard. Excellent wine and very friendly service from Ronata. Only if you want a quite time make sure when u book there are not tooo many noisy kids running around.

I will give it two stars as a max, the picnic food was delicious I have to admit, filling and tasty, delicious bread and yummy cheese and raspberry jam, and the groupon voucher we had came with a wine tasting and a glass of wine each, great right? However, our guests were told they may not order wine while they... More

Our Groupon Christmas present of wine tasting and picnic for four people was taken up by ourselves and our friends who we invited to share this experience with us. We had a wonderful day, treated like royalty by Ronelle Jones who looked after us very well. The picnic was up to the standard if not better than well known wineries... More

On Groupon we found an offer at Mooiplaas Wine Estate for a picnic and wine tasting. We immediately went for it. What a disappointment. Our group was treated with such disdain. We firstly we're told we could not order anything to drink but Appletisers, when we asked for Rooibos tea they gave us attitude. Eventually they brought a cup and... More

We had a wine tasting with the winemakers wife who was absolutely fantastic. We are not really white wine drinkers but the Chenin Blanc is fantastic. This farm is well worth the visit but beware the road is not the best

Mooiplaas, which means beautiful farm, is exactly that. My husband and I planned for a day at the Stellenbosch wineries as one day of our Cape Town visit, and it was the best decision we could have made. Upon arrival at Mooiplaas, we were greeted by the friendly staff, and were given the most descriptive tour of the estate and... More
