This is now our go-to winery to buy dessert wines to take home, and each time we visit it's lovely to see the establishment developing. The outdoor suspended tasting area is fabulous and the views across the magnificent vines and mountains awesome. The dessert wine was (is!) as good as we remembered.

We were taken here by our guide on a walking tour of the region. The set up inside is extremely professional and the tasting room especially well set out. The wines were very good and the presentation and explanation also top notch. Well worth a visit.

Thelema turned out to be one of our favourite vineyards that we visited. We were staying nearby and chose to spend a day by walking across to the 2 local vineyards. We had a delighful 20/30 minute stroll down the winding dusty road through the huge estate at Thelema, absorbing the amazing views across the rows and rows of vines. We sat in the new indoor purpose built tasting room, which has an outside balcony area and relaxed for the best part of 2 hours enjoying the wines, so much that we are awaiting a delivery at home of some we purchased. If we have one small criticism, it's that the outside setting under trees and shade is so lovely it's a shame tastings no longer take place outdoors, but we guess they are just keeping up with the competition.

Thank you very much for the visit and wonderful rating of our estate. We appreciate your feedback and thoughts. Regarding the tastings outdoors, this was only a temporary solution for the disruption that was caused by the expansion of our brand new tasting room. We are always looking of improving the experience for our guests and will continue to think of new ways to utilize the space and view of our new tasting room. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Went as sort of spur of the moment tasting and were very happy!! Best stop of our day with a beautiful, modern tasting room and awesome wines. You also get two for the price if one as they serve wines from Thelema (Stellenbosh) and Southerland (Elgin). If you like Pinot noir, they have “nailed it” and have a great Shiraz as well. Definitely fun to compare grapes from the two regions! Must stop on your wine tour!!

I’ve tasted Thelema red wine many years ago and was very impressed, so we decided to visit the estate this time and the expectations were high. The estate has a beautiful access road through vineyards with a beautiful view of the Hells Hoogte mountains. The wine tasting, however, disappointed me. I normally buy at least one bottle after tastings, but walked away without buying anything. It wasn’t the Thelema I remembered.

Dear Kobus, thank you for the feedback. Was it the presentation of the wines that disappointed you or the actual taste of the wine itself? If you are ever planning to be in the area again, please email me at marketing@thelema.co.za and I will arrange for our winemaker to taste through our wines with you.
