We enjoy GB wines and so were looking forward to visiting during our first visit to SA. This site is no longer a GB winery and will not reopen as such. I understand that BG still provides visits and tastings at their winery in Robertson area, quite a distance away in the Klein Karoo. People in Franschhoek said they were... More

stopped in for a sample of the wine, as recommended in our guide book. It wasn't super busy when we arrived, so we had a chance to visit with the staff and learn about the history of the winery. Brought home some dessert wine :)

We visited the Graham beck winery in Franschoek and as usual the welcome and the wines were superb. We concentrated on the cap classique which were outstanding. We did find out however that Graham Beck had died 18 months earlier and that the trustees had sold out to another winery and a few days after we visited the winery would... More

Spend a day away from the ordinary vineyards. Nearer Paarl, but worth the drive. Stunning.

Have been a fan of GB wines for many years since Charles Hopkins was the wine maker. Love the Game Keepers reserve. Excellent. Make a trip to the cellar - well worth it.

Graham Beck MCC is the best Champagne Equivalent in SA. Tasting Room is beautiful and looks out over the production area

the building and its entrance are quite dramatic. the wine tasting room feels, unfortunately, utilitarian as your view consists of watching their production line. the champagnes are interesting. this is the brand that we were served on Rovos Rail, at the private game reserve, and at the various hotels so it must be very popular in South Africa.

A beautiful environment, both inside and outside. Whites are very dry, but good. I personally enjoyed the reds more. Was disappointed the girl doing the tastings just poured wine in a glass. We had to ask her each time what we were tasting and couldn't get any additional info out of her. Nice place, but an educated and interested server... More

I took two guest on a champagne tasting to Graham Beck, I was even excited to go as it sounded so good. We would sit in the tasting room with a BIG glass window watching the bottling line which is soothing.... YEAH right its soothing... You have staff who look like they would rather be digging trenches and the wine... More

I was so pleased to finally get to go to the home of Graham Beck . The gardens are beautiful. Would recommend popping in on the way to Spier.
