This wine farm was the most luxurious we visited; you could even think you were in a Palace or in a contemporary timeless museum in the vineyards. They have their brand of Diamond Boutique with refined pieces, a garment shop, a restaurant, accommodation and Spa, objets d’Art everywhere, grandiose landscaping, a helipad and relaxing areas for the wine tasting with...

A friend and I visited the farm about a week ago. We were greeted at the gate by a friendly and helpful security guard who pointed us in the right direction. Once we arrived at the parking we were greeted by the most beautiful mountain ranges. The lady wine tasting adviser was friendly and informative giving a personal touch to... More

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.

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

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
