In terms of interior design Maison Estate is really stylish. I simply loved the style! We were lucky to grab to seats in the lounge area where we had a nice wine tasting (food and wine) which we really enjoyed.

Went for a wine tasting. They pair the wine with food. It was beautiful and felt homey. My favorite was the pink wine! It was amazing!

This was one of three estates where we chose to have a wine tasting and what we got far surpassed the others both in terms of the wines and the service. Our sommelier was... More

This is smaller than most and oh so elegant. The design is stunning and wines beautiful. Try the Straw Wine and you will never finish a meal without again. We loved this place. We shared just one tasting only because all vineyards were so good. This changed my perception on Chenin as previously didn't entertain it. Wine / food matching... More

We spotted the front and thought it looked pretty 'cool' and just drove in to have a look. Modern interior with some quirky furnishings (in a good way) with a beautiful lawn overlooking the vines. It's small but rather lovely. We only had a cuppa and sat in the 2 person hammock/swing on the lawn (photo attached). Idyllic spot. Levi... More
