Type: Wineries, Food & Drink
Owner description: The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

We have frequented Middelvlei for their boerebraai on numerous occasions and they never disappoint! Beautiful setting. Very child friendly with a big, safe lawn, sand pit and animal pen. The food is great. Lovely started of homemade bread with snoek pate and preserves. Meat always perfectly cooked. Delicious braai broodjies. The highlight is the pumpkin fritters, they are truly out... More

After googling child-friendly wine farms and reading some of the TripAdvisor reviews, I decided to try out middelvlei for Sunday lunch. It's a lovely setting with a country feel and we were immediately made to feel welcome. The food was delicious and if you're looking for something different, then this is the place for you - no pretentiousness or fine... More

I stopped here with the excellent one day Wine Flies wine tour and we had lunch here plus a wine tasting. The grounds are lovely and the family dogs - a huge black Great Dane, a huge Boer Bull and a cute little dachshund named Grappa make you feel right at home. Lovely place to get a dog fix whilst...

Anyone relying on the Tripadvisor map location to get to Middelvlei will get terribly lost and not reach their desired destination. Please check the Middelvlei website and rectify. It is NOT on the Helshoogte Road! It is at the end of Flamingo Road (Off Adam Tas Road) at the complete other side of Stellenbosch

Excellent WINE! Ideal location, friendly people. We stayed in the Momberg Cottage with our children for 5 days. We felt very at home and our children enjoyed the farm environment. We also enjoyed the old Boere Braai and the wine tasting. This is a lovely location and I can highly reccomend that one visit this farm and enjoy the outdoors... More

Excellent value and service in a charming, bucolic setting. We could enjoy great braai goodies (braai broodtjies, salads, boerie, choppie, chicken kebab) and taste their wine - bonus: the wine tasting was free since we were eating. Of course, we ordered an extra bottle of Pinotage to help the delicious meal go down. Highly recommended, especially if you cannot braai... More

Not only do Middelvlei produce exquisite wine but after tasting you can sit down and enjoy a good old Boere Braai for lunch. In the winter in doors at the fire or on warm summer days in the meadow next to the dam. Old old Boere kos at its best, pampoen cookies, roosterbrood, pot brood and of course beautifully braaied...

We were a party of 12 adults and 5 children. Loved the child friendly space and staff. We started off with wine-tasting. Great wine. Service was good and the 'picnic' style lunch well worth it. Potbread with pate and jam for starters followed by lamb chop, chicken, boerewors (sausage) with salad and braaibroodtjie (roasted/toasted cheese and onion sandwich) - very... More

We had the pleasure of enjoying a boerebraai lunch here and doing a little bit of tasting and blending, which was great fun. Us is also my ten year old daughter who loved the 'wine' tasting of various juices and learning a bit on how wine is made. She loved it. The food was very good, the Middelvlei Pinotage was... More

There are few wine farms left that offer an authentic, old school, down to earth, 'barefoot' wine tasting - and Middelvlei is easily one of the very best. You're likely to get taken on a tour by one of the Momberg family members who will share intimate details a simple sommelier could never hope to do. We were fortunate enough... More
