After wine tastings in the Valley, my daughter and I decided to pop into Dornier for a lunch. If you are looking for a formal restaurant, this is not for you . . . . but if you want excellent, wholesome food which is full of flavour and served in perfect portions . . . . make a point of... More

Right by the outside restaurant/bistro area is a children's play area suitable for young children. Parents and Grandparents can relax enjoy wine and tapas or a restaurant meal while the children play.

A beautiful vineyard off the beaten path. Not the most well known among tourists, a but secluded, so a more relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful scenery and lovely wine. Try the chenin blanc pinotage. The malbec is also very unique. One of the prettier vineyards!

This was our last stop and we arrived for a wine tasting just before closing time. Nevertheless, the young lady in charge was friendly and efficient. The estate is attractive and the modern tasting venue is impressive. We had a quick peek at the Bodega restaurant, which looks very inviting.

We had had a tasting a while back in the old main building which was good, but now situated in the winery it feels too impersonal and oriented to groups. The staff are fine , the chairs around the bar uncomfortable the latest wines (2015 Whites) too thin and need some maturing to gain (hopefully) some body. The history was... More

I stayed at the Dornier homestead for 3 nights, from 5 January to 8 January 2016 with my boyfriend. The staff at the wine estate were amazing, and we would like to give a mention to: Laura who welcomed us, Freena (so sorry for spelling) for looking after us during our stay including dropping us off at a neighbouring wine...

My family and I had lunch at Dornier last week and ended up wine tasting as well. The restaurant was pretty busy but the service was excellent. We were quite a big party and all enjoyed the food and wine emensely. The setting in the valley is truly stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed the outing.

I stayed at the Dornier Homestead for a night and was very, very pleasantly surprised by the Dornier estate. The house itself is an old colonial building that has recently (and tastefully) been refurbished but which still has many of its original fittings. The winery and restaurant serve a great selection of food and offer excellent wine tasting (which is... More
