    Good cellar tour and tasting
    We had a Hyperli voucher for a cellar tour, tasting and bottle of wine. We were a little uncertain as to whether this was good value, but we needn't have worried. The cellar tour was very interesting and our guide was very informative. The wine tasting was well organised and really good quality. It was lovely to sit in the garden for our tasting.
    We are so happy you gotten an great experience of our estate via Hyperli.

    7.5 km Hike above the vineyards.
    Lovely friendly and helpful staff, especially Michaela. Did the 7.5 km hike,harder than expected, took nearly 6 hours with a few stops. The view is breath taking and lots of birds. Well signposted,just quite exposed in summer. Had a decilious Expresso milkshake at Christina's afterwards.

    Jason at Van Loveren tasting room
    After our wonderful experience at the Van Loveren restaurant, Christina’s we were interested in some of the wines the farm had to offer and popped into the wine tasting room and met a fabulous gentleman, Jason. Jason’s knowledge of the family farm history and it’s wines were out of this world. His stories of the farms history and passion for wine is commendable. Jason your passion for your job is admirable. You made our experience a phenomenal one. I really wish the management of the farm recognizes your talent and appreciates you. You costs us a lot of money with the copious amount of wine you sold us. Thanks Jason. Have a lekker day!!!
    Dear Charlene, we are so happy you enjoyed your wine experience with Jason.

    Brilliant visit
    We visited yesterday and had a fantastic experience. Our Ambassador was Frida who was brilliant and very knowledgeable. She looked after us from start to finish. My wife had a 6 glass tasting with bread, olive oil balsamic, olives and dukkha. I had a classic 4 glass tasting. We also had a glass of MCC each and bought a bottle of Rose. The value was outstanding
    Grant, thank you for visiting our estate. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed Freda. We hope to welcome you back soon

    Master wines tasting...
    Van Loveren winery is a special place to visit at any time. We pre-booked knowing that there was a large group of wine walkers heading there that morning and chose the Masters wines tasting. Excellent experience, very knowledgable member of staff who conducted her brief with humour and made the experience even more entertaining. Fabulous selection of wines, the experience was never rushed as we sat outside in the garden(the garden is worth a tour around), and once again we enjoyed this our second visit, the first being in 2018. Fine shop, bubbly stoppers, a favourite wine and the Rhino cream liquor. We will return...

What a lovely wine cellar and deli. We found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. We only walked through on the way to the restaurant, but before we knew it we were tasting wine, which helped when it came to choosing from the wine list at Christina's. And yes, we ended up buying a box or two too!

If you are in the area go straight to this cellar which has beautiful treed gardens where you can taste wines and eat in shaded glades. The cellars are relatively modern and the wines are well presented. Whether or not they are to your taste is a personal choice.
However the menu is simple and attractive and the atmosphere beats anywhere in Robertson. Good service, clean and well presented facilities.

The wine tasting was excellent and the selection is across all there wines. They also had Four Cousins wine available for tasting. The restaurant on the farm serves good food and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. The farm itself is beautiful and a visit is worthwhile.

My husband and I had lunch in the Christina's restaurant's garden on a beautiful summer's day.

I had the Christina burger with bacon, cheese, mushrooms and mushroom sauce with wedges. The burger patty was freshly made medium and juicy and the wedges were delicious.

Definitely the best burger I've had and believe me I've been to many great burger joints.

Their pizzas looked equally good. Will order on my next visit.

VAN LOVEREN - ROBERTSON. So many options at this family vineyard with great history. Visit the tasting room for a wide range of tasting and pairing options, do the cellar or garden tour, dine at Christina’s Bistro or head out on a hiking trail, there’s even bird watching or mountain biking for the more adventurous! Kids tasting also available. The Christina Master tasting is my recommendation! #winetasting #winepairing #riedelglass @riedel_official #riedelafrica #robertson #robertsonwinevalley #robertsontourism #winevalleysafari #cometocapetown #visitsouthafrica #westerncape #nougatpairing #olives #chocolatepairing

We were a group of ladies on our first Girls Weekend away since lockdown! We had a wonderful private cellar tour...and then enjoyed some of their beautiful Christina MCC under the gorgeous oak trees. All the staff members we encountered were friendly and hospitable.
