Dear Team, You are running a restaurant in a world famous winery and we came with very high expectations. I'm sorry to say that the food did not have enough finesse. The menu was well written and many food items looked so inviting that we wanted to taste it all. But the execution of the dishes were poor and the... More

We loved the friendly atmosphere of the tasting room. Luvuyo's service was excellent and our spot at the fire place was so comfy. We love their white wines and the 2008 Pinot Noir. Definitely worth the visit! Would be so lovely to have a cost effective snack platter to accompany their excellent wine.

To me I want to have a different taste so that it can cater and I can explore different flavours this definitely does it for me. One you should not miss. I am not a brandy drinker but I have to take a bottle of the Dessert wine home.

Such a beautiful day spend at Haute Cabriere. Hosted by the cellar masters wife, Hildegard, such a fantastic tour of the cellar and all the history behind the wines, the wine farm, the family and Franshhoek area. A relatively new farm, with a rich history and lovely stories told expertly by our gracious host. Had our group hanging on every... More

Beautiful view from the winery and very famous wine. Just did the tasting but it is just a wonderful view you cannot miss. One thing you have to be aware of is the closing time. On the day we went closed on 1600h. We saw some visitors that couldn't enter because they came later. The wine is of course famous... More

I had the oportunity to go wine tasting on a gorgeous early autumn day. Beautiful views as far as the eyes can see... Unfortunately the wines and the people presenting them were below average. The "champagne equivalent" (called methode cap classique locally) was a term the server kept on using even when asked him to use the locally established term.... More
