Beautiful old german-ish winery well set up to invite any wine lover. We had an engaging young man as our "handler" I will call Louis. He was so engaging, we later had dinner with him after his wine class. What I amazingly discovered is a wine that before I considered just a throw the odds and ends together to make=Pinotage....

Very nice, spacious wine tasting centre - and some lovely wines. Unfortunately, they had no stock of my favorite late harvest desert wine, but maybe next time. Do try the flash food and slow wine pairing, it's highly recommended.

Visit to Neethlingshof as part of an organised shore excursion from a cruise ship docked in Cape Town. Fabulous area, gorgeous scenery and a very interesting winery tour to round the visit off (complete with wine tasting). Our hosts were friendly and informative.

The tour of the winery was fascinating. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The guide was very knowledgeable. The wines that we tasted were from a broad spectrum of reds and whites. The raising room was a little sterile and lacked ambiance. The tasting was too rushed. The red wines were outstanding especially the Cabernet Sauvignon. The grounds were beautiful. The flowers...

We had been recommended Neethlingshof as one of the nicest wineries around. We had read up on it and found that they do a food pairing. We decided to do this tasting as a late afternoon tasting, so that we could have a little snack (with the food pairing) but nothing too heavy.. We turned up and were asked to... More

It was extremely hot on New Year's Day and we had our flight at three. We were happy to be able to park our car under the old oak trees so our suitcases did not boil in car. The service in the restaurant was fine and the wine-tasting very interesting! The view and atmosphere were really beautiful!

We had already had lunch on another estate so we went along for some wine tasting and a cheese platter. It was already 5 pm... More

Along with family and international guests, I visited the Restaurant after we failed to get a reservation at a nearby restaurant at such short notice. I was expecting great food and atmosphere after reading previous reviews here on trip advisor but the food my company and I ordered was, to say the least, poor. The service was acceptable and the...

We arrived for their live music wednesdays, the lady informed us that there was no tables available even though we did phone earlier and she said we don't have to book! She said she will see if she can move a table from the inside to the outside section for us...after about 15min standing around she mentioned very abruptly that... More
