“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Situated just outside Stellenbosch in the shadow of 2 majestic mountains - this is an amazing winery, restuarant, lodges where no expense has been spared. A fantastic base for exploring the wine region or just living in the lap of luxury for a few days. Food in restaurant was stunning.

“amazing view, but no real wine tasting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

the view is awesome, but the service was bad. The wine bottles were not shown and we got only quick information regarding the wines we ordered for testing. Anyhow it was not a real wine tasting, because you pay 10 ZAR per each wine and get quite a big glass.

“Very impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

The location is stunning. You drive up the mountain from Stellenbosch and park up,

The large wooden door swings open as you approach it - I felt like it was a Bond villian;s mansion.

Once inside the staff where friendly and informative. We enjoyed wine tasting and a nice coffee here.

Also, a weird thing to write .. but impressive toilets here !!!
