“Great wines, but poor atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Rust en Vrede has a wonderful location and a fantastic restaurant. Their wines are spectacular, but unfortunately the unfriendliness of people in the wine tasting room, made the experience a bit sour. A visit to taste their wines is still recommended.

“Delicious Red Wines, Beautiful Grounds”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We went here during a full day wine tour - beautiful view from their grounds. Neat cellar that you can walk through, and delicious red wines.
Definitely stop here for a tasting!

“Some of my favorite wines”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I made sure to stop here having had their wines stateside. Their wines do not disappoint and the venue is very nice. Buying was more of a challenge than it should have been. The restaurant was closed for winter break which was unfortunate.

“really amazing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

what a wonderful restaurant this was. My fiance and I visited on a weeknight after we were recommended to dine here by the manor we were staying at and we were not disappointed. Our waitress was so attentive and polite, knew the wine list very weel, and the food was phenomenal. Would definitely recommend this for an intimate meal for couples.

“Amazing Estate Blends!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

Beautiful Vineyard and a nice selection of wines! I particularly liked the 2008 estate blend - their flagship wine!
