We stopped at this estate while doing the Franschhoek Wine Tram and it was definitely our favourite. We did a food pairing tasting session which the team set up in a private room for us. It was a wonderful experience, with artfully selected canapes that really complemented the wine along with interesting/educational explanations for each tasting. The gardens are beautiful... More

The vineyard is stunning with a great display of art however we went for the wine tasting and the whole experience was over in 10 minutes. Minimal explanation, rushed and overall left a bad taste. I heard the restaurant is great and it is a stunning place to visit but unfortunately left bad impression.

With some time to kill before we checked in to our accommodation, we decided to visit Grand Provence Estate. This was a good choice and right from the huge elephant at the entrance to the beautiful gardens and art exhibition we were able to relax and enjoy the scenery with the luxury of a lovely bottle of Rose from the...

The farm is very beautiful and we were seated for a quick tasting that turned out to be rather special. The TGP White really caught our attention. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere is delightful.

Architecture and landscaping is amazing ! All the plants were green and well cared for. The art gallery was really interesting ! The food was ok , and for what you paid not worth it at all. The Cabernet sauvignon was extremely good , I would recommend it to anyone !
