Beautiful cruise down the river. Do arrive a bit earlier and grab some snacks and drinks, it just makes the cruise a little more enjoyable. Great activity to do in a group. Lovely views along the river. Shade is provided upstairs and below with extra umbrellas put up.

We bought a bottle of wine and drank it as we slowly meandered down the river turned and can't back up. Most people had a picnic bought in the little shop. We did not have time to do this but ate afterwards. Something nice to do on a warm day.

We were staying in the area for three days and wanted to try a different type of wine tasting experience. Viljoensdrift's option of picnic and river cruise offered just what we were looking for.

Nice spot but a bit of a slow boat to nowhere. We had a short cruise up the river, the boat turned around and we had a slow drift back.

We almost missed this place as not well advertised, however it is well worth seeking out. There is a lovely deli where you can buy a picnic and either eat in the gardens or take a boat ride . The wines were nice but not memorable. The staff were lovely .

We loved tasting wine on the river boat, lovely and cool breezes and a very gentle trip. Good photo opportunities and you can fill a picnic basket at the deli beforehand and bring it along. Its an perfect add on to your visit to the Robertson valley.

Viljoensdrift is a vineyard that provides more than the usual wine tasting. Situated on the bank of the Breede river, it has a deli where visitors can purchase goodies for a riverside picnic, and there are also hour-long boat cruises for people to enjoy their picnics with an ever-changing view. The deli food can end up an expensive way of... More
