I visited about twenty wineries during my time in Stellenbosch and even though I seldom got bad wine, this winery definitely has the best red wines. It is also a beautiful place to visit and the food was smelling delicious from where we were sitting.

Rust en Vrede wine farm is one of our favorite wine farms to visit when we are in Stellenbosch. Lunch is excellent and the Rust en Vrede wines are some off the best wines in the area. Service is great during lunch and the wine tasting.

My husband and I spent 3 days in the Stellenbosch area visiting 6 or 7 wineries. Established in 1694, the Rust En Vrede (Rest and Peace) was the highlight of all the wineries for both the wine and the food. Their focus is on full bodies red wines and they are delicious with a full finish! They were nominated as... More

Having never tried the main award winning restaurant we are regular visitors to the Estate. Frankly there are very few wines better than Rust-en-Vrede anywhere in the Cape. The renovations to expand the casual dining under the oaks coupled with additions of salmon and white wine have made this experience even better than it was and that is saying something.... More

Exceptional location, in the middle of a wonderful wine yard with flowers and shadowy trees. The place offers a lunch with a sirloin steak and a glass of one of their best wine. Unbeatable!!!!

We are very delighted to visit Rust en Verde on the last day of our South Africa trip. Traffic was very light, and we were able to enjoy the nice scenery of Stellenbosch on the way. The Estate is very classy and beautifully, but not excessively landscaping. With peaceful environment and stillness, tasting wines on the patio made us feel... More

A very sophisticated tasting experience in a lovely setting. Learned a lot about the wines, all of which were a pleasure to taste. Lunch is available in the tasting room (steak or salmon) and the adjacent restaurant offers an upmarket dining experience in the evening.

If you like red wines then you have to visit this beautiful estate. The wines are exceptional and each bottle is progressively better than the previous one...This was some of the best wines i have ever tasted anywhere in the world. Proud that we produce wine of this caliber in South Africa. Highly recommended.

Great wines and good staff. We had a lovely young lady for our tasting who was so attentive and sweet. The setting for tasting here is beautiful with a lovely patio outside and a long bar inside. I recommend a dinner booking at their restaurant as well.
