The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

This is my wife's favourite wine farm for some very good reasons. The wine is excellent, the service is always good and the staff very welcoming. They also don't skimp on the tastings. It's hidden away and makes for a great afternoon lazing around with friends and some farm food. Worth a visit (or many).

This wineries tasting room is in the old stable, which has been done up very nicely to be different from most other wine farm visits you will do. This wine estate has much to offer with regards the varietals on offer. There Shiraz and Pinotage is one of the best in Stellenbosch. They also do a Chardonnay, Cabernet and a... More

At first it seems unimpressive, but one needs to understand that this is not the typical Cape Dutch wine estate that is typical to the region. This is more a traditional Afrikaans "Boere" setting with traditional Afrikaner cuisine. Hence the title of this review... We came for the Boere Tapas wine tasting and the Kids wine tasting. The Kids Wine... More

We'd booked the boerebraai for Sunday lunch with friends visiting from Gauteng - I had checked out several reviews and it looked good. We were made to feel very welcome as we arrived, and we were seated under an umbrella in the garden - there's a lot of bird life in the fields which we enjoyed watching while our waitress... More

This was the last stop on our visit to South Africa, and one of our favorites. Our whole family enjoyed the traditional South African braai (barbeque). The grounds are beautiful, and it was fun to see where the meat is cooked out back. They had a huge dog that came into the dining area, (almost as tall as our table)... More

Spent Friday afternoon on a team building outing with my company. Ben is amazing host and so personal and made the cellar tour interactive and interesting. We got fed, home made braai bread and snoek pate, along with some amazing white and red wines. Treated to the BoereBraai, just how a south African feast should be, braai broedjies, corn, chops,...
