Michael gave us a tour of the champagne and wine process. Just brilliant. Imagine the delight of penning a bottle right out of the cellar. Made our day spectacular!

I loved this wine estate. The drive to the estate was beautiful with tall trees lining both sides of the road. The estate was peaceful and not too crowded. The wines were wonderful.

We stopped at Simonsig as it was inbetween two other wineries we planned to visit and it turned out to be our favorite. Spectacular grounds and views, outstanding wines and the restaurant was outstanding. Definitely worth a stop while in Stellenbosch!

Dropped in for some wine tasting and met the very enthusiastic and knowledgeable thumi. We enjoyed his introductions to the wines, he also allowed us to taste some special reserves that were excellent. The highlight for me is their straw wine (desert wine with unusual flavours) just had to buy some. Will certainly return for tastings
