Beautiful statues and other cultural pieces spread out in the estate. Wine tasting is the worst experience ever ! Poor service and awful wines served but pretentious and unskilled / unqualifed waiters.

This was our final stop of the day on our wine tour and what a way to end it! So so pretty with beautiful established gardens and interesting sculptures scattered around the gardens! The wine tasting room was modern and inviting. A very busy time of the day as it's the last stop for many do be prepared to wait... More

If you ever dreamed of staying on a wine estate this is as close as you can get. Fortunately, we had the owners cottage all to ourselves The accommodations are excellent and the... More

Stunning estate with garden of sculptures, great scenery and several tasting options. Also had some of the desserts which were absolutely decadent as well as the wine tasting. the best estate that we did a tasting at in Franschoek.

The wine tasting at Grande Provence is sublime. You have the option of sitting either in the lovely and lush garden or in the cool tasting room. The Pinot noir is a must! The art gallery is also a treat boasting excellent contemporary SA art!

We visited Grand Provence in March 2015 and it is truly a beautiful estate. We did not have time to have lunch at the garden restaurant, but the setting is truly magnificent. Lunch or wine under the large trees in the beautiful garden looked wonderful. We tasted wine in the tasting room and the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The... More

This is a stunning place, we have been late afternoon and enjoyed the sunshine. The wine tasting offers good choices--the server was good in her descriptions ending each time with "this is a very good wine"--it made us laugh. There is a tapas menu late afternoon which looked good, along with coffee etc. One of the wineries to visit.

Visited here as part of wine tram tour and was our favourite vineyard of the day. Gorgeous setting, really beautiful estate and stylish interior. Wine tasting was outside under trees and you could choose from different tariffs and wine selections. My tip (not sure whether they'll always let you though) is if you're in a pair, each of you choose... More

a wonderful venue spoilt by dreadful kitchen service. Took two hours to have a set menu for 16 people. I don't understand why these wine farms can't get their kitchens organised!! Food when it eventually arrived was good.
