Rust en Vrede is a beautiful estate, with a lovely name, however, the staff are quite impersonal and I get the feeling that they just learn everything about the wines off by heart instead of having a deeper understanding of them. We certainly did not feel very welcome and I wouldn't return or recommend anyone to go tasting there. The... More

The name of the winery does not match the cold welcome received by the 2 staff members at the wine tasting. Upon arrival there was a total desinterest and unfriedly reception. We were a party of 5 and there was only one table for 3 available in the tasting room and the response was " this will not do for... More

This must be one of the best value for Money wine tasting in the World. Extremely good wines. Seems to be a very well managed estate. We did not visit the restaurang but it looked very good.

This winery is so amazingly beautiful! Of course the reds are great as well--but it is really worth a trip just to drive out through the wine lands to visit this winery. The people were friendly and it was an enjoyable day with memorable scenery!

At the end of a tour through the winelands we stopped at Rust en Vrede, for the final tasting, and it was truly worth it. The red ones are good, but those which are somewhat rare are the best. That was so convincing that we bought two bottles of 1694 (a red blend which is marvellous) for a great price... More

The wine and scenery is excellent, shame there is only one lunch you can have and even not a starter. We tasted the wine but only got like salt and pepper for the starter :-/ Waitin very long for steak to come Though... So I recommend it, but rather eat before and just do the wine tasting!

This was our final stop during a day of wine tasting in South Africa, and it was the best of the bunch. Excellent wine, the service was attentive but unrushed, and the wine was excellent.

The wine cellar is very nice, but the wines on the wine tasting are not much more than OK. The steak and chips lunch was nice. All and all - if you're coming to taste and buy good wine at reasonable prices - it's not the winery I'd recommend.
