Warm welcome, excellent wines, extremely good picnic selection which is supplied complete with basket, tablecloth and ice bucket for cold drinks - all this and a pleasant cruise down the Breede River to enjoy the picnic as wonderful views go by. A very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. We enjoyed the wines so much we even managed... 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.

I went on this river cruise with my normal enthusiasm for nature and adventure. What a pleasure. To just enjoy the view of vineyards, the birdlife and jumping fish whilst cruising by. I also enjoyed the company of the other folk. I think the tranquility of the surrounds lulls everyone. You can also enjoy the picnic lunch that you chose... More

We enjoyed a boat trip one Saturday lunchtime. The deli had some great choices and we selected a delicious picnic which was packed into a box complete with cutting board and knives. The bread was still warm from the oven. While we waited for the trip, we tasted the wine - which was reluctantly pored by a miserable and unfriendly... More

A lovely way to spend an hour on the Breede River. One can make up a picnic from the food on sale at the deli and take it on board with a bottle of wine or have a picnic lunch on the deck overlooking the river before or after the cruise. One can sit on the well-kept grassy bank of... More
