Good old friends and I have been doing an annual wine tour/tasting for quite a few years. Although the number of wine tastings has slowly diminished over the years, this year’s one off stop at Bergkelder, was a first. Over the years, one gets a fair exposure to the level of passion and knowledge of the person who is taking... More

First off this tour/tasting is very cheap at 40 Rand (about €3) per person. Our guide Bead was very friendly and answered all our questions. It's about an hour from start to finish but we had a great time. Keep up the good work guys!

We visited "the characterful Bergkelder Wine Centre in Stellenbosch, proud Home of Fleur Du Cap wines, offering wine lovers one of the most rewarding wine experiences in the Cape." We were not dissappointed. We tasted an inspiring range of award-winning Fleur du Cap wines, chatted to Colin Bridger, the manager there and man, was he interesting to talk to. His... More

Karina and Nadia was the two most clued up hostesses of all the wineries we've been to. They are so lively and really made us feel welcome and wanted! They were genuine and really gave us a feel of the hospitality you could only recieve in the winelands. Apart from them there is A LOT of interesting wine,brandy and whiskey... More

Bergkelder is a lovely location and really encapsulates the look and feel of Stellenbosch wine making. It has a great little museum which is worth lingering in and an interesting souvenir shop. The tour itself was dull and uninteresting. The whole thing smacked of an advertisement and the guide was uninspiring and it was almost tedious moving swiftly from one... More

As this is in 'town', rather than take in this Wine maker during the 'vinehopper' tour decided to walk from our accommodation. Sadly, after enjoying the tour with a very interesting young man whose family are small vinyard owners, the after service was poor to say the least! Dismissive and slightly arrogant I am sorry to say! We spent two... More

Would really recommend a visit - fabulous atmosphere, lovely wine, very informative without being too technical. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable with a genuine enthusiasm - plus there is absolutely no pressure to buy (but we still did as it was all delicious!).
