Relaxing day with good music

Relaxed boat trip with picnic lunch. Deli caters for everyone. Platters are good and so was the grape juice. Lovely afternoon spent relaxing and listening to music.

Going to Viljoensdrift is a real treat. By far one of my favourite things to do when I visit my father in the Cape. It is absolutely beautiful there and the feeling of peace you get sipping on good wine, eating cheese and floating along the Breede River is hard to beat. The lovely picnic baskets with lovely snacks completes... More

This is a very pleasant way to spend a few hours between wine tastings and grab a snack as well. There are well kept lawns next to the boat mooring and delhi. The delhi has a good variety of snacks, bread, cheeses and wine to compile a tasty picknick basket to be enjoyed on the benches next to the delhi,... More

We were staying in Monagu and our hosts at our Guesthouse recommended and booked our boat trip at Viljoensdrift for us. We arrived in time for a free wine tasting before the river trip and then purchased a bottle of white wine to take with us on the boat. We were provided with an ice bucket and wine glasses and...

This wine farm has the added benefit of daily river cruises - this is a great way to spend a few hours, by picking up a picnic selection of food from the onsite deli and then either enjoying it overlooking the river or in deed taking it on board and savouring the food whilst taking a leisurely cruise down the...

We took a few days off to explore the Robertson valley and a visit to Viljoensdrift was on our to do list. Even tho it was drizzling it was still a great trip. We had an a amazing wine tasting, bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon and a few goodies from the deli for the boat trip and off we... More

Visited Viljoensdrift during Wacky Wine weekend. Enjoyed their bubbly. Lovely vibe and croissant to die for. Boat trips every hour. They really went the extra mile in presentation of their brand. Will be back next year.

This is wonderful experience. You get to taste the wine, then buy your favorite wine and go for a boat ride on the Breede river. The ride is about 50minutes. There is also a Deli from which you can buy whatever you want for the pick nick basket that you can then take onto the boat. It is a very... More

We made the mistake of having a late brunch so we were full and couldn't have a deli picnic while on the boat and had a few snacks instead. So advice for other travelers is to arrive hungry for the cruise. The cruise itself is nothing to write home about. The boat probably doesn't even go a kilometer up and... More

After our morning walking mcgregor we decided on a relaxed lunch and chose to drive thru to Viljoensdrift. A Beautiful setting besides the river with choice of the deck or grass and picnic benches. We ordered the full tapas range to share. The platter was a mixture of good to poor selection. We would have preferred to not have the... More
