Beautiful landscape and not to mention the view.
Once you park or sit down outside or inside there is an incredible breathtaking view of Table Mountain and surrounding ocean.

Wine tasting is done with the top class that you would expect from a top class vineyard such as De Grendal.
Hosting of the wine tasting, pouring of the wine and explaining of the wine was an all out excellent experience.

Guys we went here on recommendations,big mistake,38 C outside,4 umbrellas for 30 people????

Wine way way below average,so sorry our Lady doesn't like to work here.Learned a few lines,doesn't understand wine.

Suppose they cater for a completely different audience.

If you want to charge R150 for a wine tasting,surely you should have wine to taste,wine close to 30C,even Bubbles,I had to send back,had to request for our Lady on 3 occasions.

Not impressed,won't be back,sorry.
Lovely views,very very overrated

Went for a wine tasting, and were not disappointed. Beautifully kept premises with magnificent views. Rainy day, so we were seated inside, out of the cold. Mikyle Rodrigues is a very well spoken and knowledgable facilitator who really made the visit memorable. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here, and purchased plenty of their wines at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

I had dinner at de Grendel many times before. Everytime the quality of food, service and wine was excellent. This time however there where no complains about the food but the service was not as it is use to be, the fine dining standard was not there anymore.
For instance:
One wooden plate on which the bread was served was only removed at the end of the dinner. The sideplates where not removed after the starter.
We had to ask three times for ice cubes. A bottle of wine was poured in glasses without tasting it before.
The cheese desert was served without plates.
As usual the wine was excellent. Maybe it is the blame of Covid19. but I
hope the old standard will be reached after this review. There is a lack of training the staff

Popped through to this gorgeous Wine Estate for an impromptu tasting. We had the pleasure of being hosted by Simeon who not only made us feel at home but provided us with an extremely informative tasting. Simeon - to you a big thank you. Your knowledge of the Estate and the Wines was impressive. Of course, coupled with this is the magnificent view that one can appreciate as you sip these lovely wines. I am now a club member and will most certainly be back.

Went on the farm tour with Douglas and would highly recommend! You will be taken around the farm, see some wildlife, and learn some interesting history. A fun and unique activity in the Durbanville wine area.

I was surprised to find this wine estate tucked away in such close proximity of suburbia but what a superb venue!

We were really taken by surprise. This wine farm took our breath away. It is a real farm in the middle of a city area, yet once on the farm you don’t feel like you in a city area. This level of professionalism we really didn’t experience on many wine farms like we did on this farm. First it is a beautiful designed modern approach, yet the elements of the olden days are kept in many aspects. The view of the game and Table Mountain are just mesmerising. The wines are great and the servers are really knowledgeable about the wines. Thank you so much Liam for making our wine tasting experience so great.

This wine estate is very close to CPT, but is like a little oasis in the bustle of the outskirts of the city. Reservations are recommended, especially in the weekend. Service was friendly, good explanations about the wines.
