What a way to spend a few hours at lunch time, Wander into the Wine/Deli and have a FREE wine tasting, buy your river cruise ticket, back into the deli to choose your picnic food, choose your wine, it is all put into a basket for you to take onboard the small river cruiser for you to enjoy. Well recommended.

Really great boat trip along the river, took a bottle of wine on board and enjoyed the scenery! Ate before the trip at the restaurant and the food was very very good. We had a gluten & dairy intolerant person with us and they sorted a tasty meal out right away. Great service. Friendly people throughout. Highly recommended.

We chose a selection of charcuteries, cheeses, pâtés, and freshly baked bread and, naturally, some wine from the Deli at Viljoensdrift. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, the view and the company.

Nice "have to do" experience and the nicest warm bread and snacks from the deli. All very reasonably priced.

We chose some food from the deli and a bottle of wine and were taken on board the boat. All works very smoothly and really is enjoyable. Blankets available if a bit chilly but remember to ask for one. They do have picnic area and a Café if you don't want to eat on board or from the deli. Wine... More

A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. We enjoyed the wines so much we even managed... More

Well, we went for this apparent boat trip but it turned out the most boring thing I have ever done in my life. You best option could be to buy plenty of wine and just get drunk, unless of course you would combine it with wine tasting. It could be a different way of doing some wine tasting and for... More

Good wines on a fun spot. Beautiful place to sit by the river & taste wine. Great spot for a picnic and they even have a boat ride for those who want to see more. Their better wines are very good and tastings are fun.
