We went for wine tasting over the weekend for a friends birthday and thoroughly enjoyed the morning. Elzane was the perfect host with great knowledge and the skill to pass this on to us. Fantastic experience and highly recommend anyone who wants to experience a fun day out to try them!

Had an amazing tasting with Elzaan. We will certainly be back for more! We've been to lots of different tastings, but this one stood out. Yes, it's a beautiful farm, delicious wine, but the real winner... the service... Thank you Elzaan.

The wine tasting here is a must go when you are in Franschhoek. Ask for the cheese and cold meat platter. And do not miss the White Mischief 2014, The Red Ladie 2014 (😋) and the best one in the house is Boet Erasmus 2011 with a Lindt Chocolate 70%, you I'll be amazed with this pairing.
