We booked a treatment at the spa and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff are attentive and friendly, they go out of their way to accommodate you and enjoying a massage in this beautiful setting was a treat. We followed up on our 2 hours of pampering with some wine in the tasting room (not sure if one can... More

We spent yesterday visiting wineries in this district. At the recommendation & help of a young SA wine buyer, we managed to get in here for lunch...what a wonderful accident of fate. The views are breath-taking. The buildings are a knock-out. This Relais & Chateau restaurant is a MUST Do! The service & food are exceptional and so well priced.... More

I think this is our second visit and we enjoyed it again. We incorporated lunch with wine tasting which was superb. Natalie our server was very attentive without being 'in the way'. The sommelier was very knowledgable and recommended our individual wines to our dishes. We all had different choices and he got it spot on. Our table was on... More

We visited Delaire Graff during our trip in Stellenbosch - what a beautiful estate! The property is in the middle of mountain and surrounded by peaks and vineyards. With the financial wherewithal of Graff, the building and art is fantastic. It also doubles as a boutique hotel and has a great restaurant called IndoChine. We also tasted wines at their... More

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
