Farm lovely, hostess very knowledgeable. Setting fantastic - views across valley superb. Unsuccessful wine sales to us. Tried 3 wines 1 white and 2 Reds. We usually drink red but found the white one best of the 3.

This vineyard is a must for all wine lovers. Not only does it produce some of South Africa's top wines, but it also offers a fantastic experience for visitors with the unique combination of art architecture, nature and even a classic Porsche!
