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.

While visiting Cape Town, we drove to Delaire Graff Estate for wine tasting. What a beautiful location. (The wines were excellent, too). Both the gardens and the mountain setting were as stunning as anything we saw in two weeks in South Africa. This was more extraordinary than anything we have seen in the Niagara wine area or in the Kelowna... More

The most beautiful winery I have been in South Africa. To sit outside and taste some wine with a platter of delicious chess is just priceless.

I visited with a group of five students. They all tasted wine and I was driving. So I thought I could have a cup of coffee while they are drinking wine. No. They don't serve coffee, because people ended up just sitting in the tasting area drinking coffee. That is the lame excuse I was given. If that was all,... More
