I went to the Delaire Graff Estate for a wine tasting. The environment is great, the service was really good, but the wines themselves were much more about the Graff brand rather than being of great quality. I left feeling disappointed by the quality of the product, rather than enthused by the full experience. The Tokara estate opposite had far... More

This estate entices people driving along Helshoogte Road (from Stellenbosch to Franschoek) to turn off and have a look. So we did, indeed, turn off - even though Delaire Graff wasn't our intended destination. The garden layout is incredible, and the many sculptures are spectacular, as is the panoramic view. We were warmly greeted by the service staff, there was... More

Delaire Graff is a beautifully appointed winery with stunning grounds, excellent art and sculpture and a wonderful building incorporating the owners diamond business and a women's clothing boutique. The wine tasting rooms are equally lavish. However, the wines themselves are somewhat average and certainly overpriced. I chose to taste their premium wines and whilst they were good, I have tasted... More

This estate is very fancy. The tasting area is set up beautifully to get great views while you sip your wine. I loved the water features on the grounds and the bathroom smelled divine.

Beautiful mountain and vineyard views that compliment divine cuisine. Oysters were fresh and tasty - not always easy to find with the cultivated ones. Con was cooked perfectly and finely complimented with the surrounding flavours of the dish. **We found the chairs very low and needed additional cushions. I will be back!!

The estate has a great restaurant and winery, but its surrounding is truly wonderful, located at a vantage point in the mountains. The buildings and vines are found in a magnificent garden, offering plenty of great photo opportunities.
