Spectacular views and a very artistic and stylish decor. Definitely worth a visit to enjoy the grounds. Wines were excellent, however we found the experience a little bit pretentious and impersonal compared to some of the other wineries in the region.

One of the highlights of our trip to SA! Everything was amazing.. From the meet and greet, layout, menu, wine! Recommend you book early as unable to get booked for dinner but managed a lunch reservation. On reflection I think if I was to back I would go for lunch again as you were able to absorb the setting and... More

On our way to Cape Town from Franschhoek we were advised to have a visit here from our guesthouse hosts. The wines are supposed to be great and also the estate has lovely views. They were right. The wines were lovely and the views were great. So nice were the wines that we decided to make a purchase. Don't think... More

We had always wanted to see the outstanding art and sculpture collection that Delaire has amassed and we were not disappointed. Keith Kirsten's garden layout didn't disappoint either. Alan welcomed us warmly to the building where the Spa and Indochine Restaurant is situated. He was so knowledgeable about every painting and every sculpture and took time out to explain the... More

The best winery and estate we have visited - we could have stayed in the tasting room all day. The wine was great as well - the only place of the day we finished each of the tastings. The staff also were great and very personable, including our interaction with the manager. Hope to be back!

The Delaire Graff Wine Estate is a piece of magic. With a beautiful ambience and landscape it is stunning. I went on a wine tour to Stellenbosch and honestly could've spent the whole day here and really didn't need to go to any other wineries. The wine is amazing and you get to sit in a cosy lounge at the... More

The staff and sommelier were friendly and knowledgeable.... We didn't have much time for anything more than a tasting a little stroll..... but was definitely impressed! And... More

A simply beautiful estate. Lovely location, stunning art, amazing garden and above all....superb wines at a fair price. This topped with highly professional and friendly service/advice puts Delaire very near the top of our favourite vineyards in the Western Cape.
