WOW! This wine estate, vineyard and deluxe lodge and spa are well worth a visit. we were very fortunate in that our tour guide knew the manager at the estate so we not only had a tremendous wine tasting but we got a tour of the estate grounds, loding, spa and WOW! The owner got his start in the diamond... 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

Graff is also a jewelry designer to the VERY wealthy and there is a store in the winery ... amazing jewelry... I wish I could say the same for the wine....very average. The building and staff are great.....

Not what I was expecting..... but we ended out wine tour here at the Graff Estate.... The garden was amazing... just amazing! As were the views of the countryside and the Drakenstein Mountains.... 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.

Unlike most of the wine tasting, where you stand at the counter and taste the wine one by one, at Delaire Graff, you can sit down in a comfy sofa, listening to live piano and sip the wine. So the total experience was great. The fee is 50 Rands for 3 wines. However, when we bought their wines, they credited... More

Indeed... the vineyard and the view is stunning - but that's it. We've visited the wine tasting of Delaire on May 8th, 2014 in the afternoon. It was our first wine tasting in ZA at all. The facts: You pay R50 (!!) per person to taste 3 different kind of wines from a list where most of the wines were... More

Enjoy some of the finest South African wines the Stellenbosch area has to offer at the Graff Estate. Do a tasting (R50 for 3 tastings, R70 for 5) overlooking the beautiful valley before or after doing a tour around the estate with one of the golf-carts with a driver/guide. Simply, be impressed by the beauty of this winery, owned by... More

Delaire Graff has lovely views, and the local art on display is stunning, but other than that, it could be anywhere in the world. It doesn't have the feel of a real South African wine farm and it lacks a bit of history and dept. Whilst the staff are very lovely, their constant attentionn- whether desired or not - is... More
