Wanted to do the flash food, slow wine pairing but couldn't as we hadn't booked. Really enjoyed the cheese/charcuterie platter + wine tasting though.

We had delightful wine tasting at the lovely, historic Neethlingshof wine estate. Two members of our party had the wine and food pairing, it must surely rate as one of the best value for money experiences in the cape winelands.

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!
