Living in the winelands, you quickly learn that wine can be paired with almost anything :) Tried out the chocolate and wine pairing - very cool experience. Our host was great, the atmosphere is lovely and the tasting is simply divine!!

This is a great wine farm which offers a really memorable chocolate and wine tasting experience. It is all set in against a really stunning back drop of the mountains and the grounds themselves are simply stunning.

Another of the great wine farms in the Stellenbosch region specifically located in Somerset West. This is about a 25 minute drive from Stellenbosch and it is worth the time to venture here. Their wines and chocolate are divine. You can drink your wine in the wonderful outdoors and it is an ideal setting for all. The costs are reasonable;... More

My wife and I visited twice in the past month and were impressed by the lovely gardens, old farm buildings and scenery. The wine cellar had some "specials" on offer, both times, which were really value for money wines! Well worth a try. The Millhouse restaurant almost eluded us on the 2nd visit, as there was a "fully booked" sign... More
