Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate wears her 300-year history with style. Nestled within the Franschhoek Valley in the Western Cape, surrounded by 47-acres of lush vines, this is heartland South African wine country at its finest. The Estate is home to Grande Provence’s award-winning wines and its passionate wine making team. Following harvest every year, carefully selected wines leave the Estate to compete in some of the world’s most prestigious competitions – the number and frequency of the awards bears testament to their success. A sophisticated destination in its own right, Grande Provence proudly presents superb cuisine at The Restaurant, fine wines at The Tasting Room, some of South Africa’s finest art at The Gallery & The Shop, receptions and boutique conferences at The Jonkershuis and 5-star accommodation at The Owner’s Cottage.

A great value wine tasting option

What I enjoyed here was there were various wine ranges we could taste. We decided to try their budget range of Angel Tears wines. We tasted four wines and being cheaper wines priced at about R35 were surprisingly good. We particularly enjoyed the red blend. I would have like to have some cheese or... read more

The domain, its gardens and sculptures are very classy and beautiful! The interior of the restaurant is very stylish. The quality of the food is high but not consistent. The service was poor and not attentive. They forgot a fork, a plate fell on the floor, forgot to clean up crumbs after the main course and one server (a man... More

Our 4th or 5th visit to Grande Provence, hopefully this was just a temporary slip. The Good: Lovely location as usual, sunny winters day with the fires going inside. Main courses were tasty, deserts delicious. The Bad; Service was poor, had to ask for drinks very often (4 times for 1 glass of water being the worst), we were never... More

We enjoyed a fantastic winetasting experience with great service from Francis. She was very informative and friendly. I would recommend a stop here for each and everyone passing.

On arrival it is obvious that a lot of time and effort has gob=ne into to gardens with their impressive statues and overall appearance. Sadly this improvement is not reflected in the offerings from the restaurant side of the establishment. To start they had mixed up the actual booking, preparing a table outside when specifically requesting an indoor table due... More

We had a private dining experience in The Jonkershuis with some friends, and were treated to a delectable lunch! The menu had some very interesting starters, mains and desserts, some that I had never before seen or tasted- A feast for the distinctive palate! The waiters were very professional and discreet. We enjoyed the lovely room, which was warm with... More

I have visited this farm many times, because it is so elegant, stylish and beautiful, but unfortunately my last visit was really disappointing. The wine tasting was poorly presented and there was only one guy outside to help all the guest with the tasting, unfortunately this ended up in really poor service. I don't believe I will revisit in a... More

We stumbled upon this gem without plan to but what a pleasant find! The setting is pure beauty, especially in the early afternoon when the sun is starting to dip through the giant plane trees. The menu offers sophisticated choices, and the dishes we had were delicious and executed to perfection. The GP Sauvignon Blanc wine was the best we... More
