Owner description: Situated on the slopes below the Helderberg Mountain, in the heart of South Africa's most famous wine region Stellenbosch. Our vineyards are commonly referred to as the Home of Chenin Blanc, and we have numerous awards and accolades for chenin as well as some of the finest Rhone Blends in the country. Come and meet the dogs, horses, geese and ducks as you relax under the shade of the oak trees with amazing views and wonderful wines.

We spent a pleasant hour or so sampling 6 of the wines along with a cheese board for lunch. The gardens are shaded which was a blessing from the hot summer sun. The service was great and helped create a very relaxed and special way to spend our holiday. We bought a few bottles of the Petit range which were... More

Wines are fantastic, but stay away from 69 Winery Road - service is non-existent and food is mediocre at best.

If you're looking to try a different South African wine, look no further than Ken Forrester's wines. They are very reasonably priced for an excellent product. Having been privileged enough to meet Ken, his warm friendly hospitality and passion for his wines make this choice even sweeter.

On arrival we were greeted warmly and explained all the different options for a tasting. Besides the great wines, the cheese platter is really worth... More

From the moment you drive into this winery you just know its a special place. I've heard about the great chenin blanc and just had to taste. The lady that served the wine was friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble for her. I was first given the 3 chenin blancs to compare. They were all good. I ended up... More
