A gem - just off the normal easy routes
Nov 2019 • Couples
If you have the time enjoy the areas back roads (mostly good gravel) and make time for both a wine tasting and something to eat. Wines are fairly well known and rated.. the old house and restaurant is also worth the visit and walk through

Taste the whole range....if you dare!
Jul 2019
The tasting room is inside this gorgeous, historic Cape Colony building where you have to walk through the shining wine tanks to arrive at a smiling young woman who will guide you through the range... the whole range if you dare.

I absolutely loved standing and chatting to our wine hostess. It was a wonderful experience for my Italian family member to enjoy and taste the beautiful wines Groote Post is producing.

I will definitely be returning! but next time I'll bring the 4x4 rather than my run-around.

Hidden gem in Darling

What a hidden gem in Darling.
We were at the beer house and moved onto the wine

The tasting was wonderful and the waiters serving us was great and knew all about the wine.

Fantastic food, relaxing lunch
Dec 2019
Groote Post restaurant and winery are situated off the beaten track outside Darling, western cape. A perfect spot for wine tasting outdoors, fantastic food, either indoors or outdoors or a picnic - children’s play area which can be seen from tables and shaded outdoor eating. Food was fantastic. Unusual small menu but each dish was unique and tasted superb.

Well worth the drive

We had a great tasting presented by relaxed and friendly people. Loved the MCC and Chardonnay, and couldn’t leave without having some boxes sent home. We were fortunate enough to see the resident baby owls. Made our day!

Lunch

Lovely meal is this special venue. It feels like being a visitor in a great manor house. The food was excellent and well presented. My teriyaki chicken was delicious as was my husband pork belly. The cherry on the top was the baked cheese cake. It was beyond delicious. Definitely worth a visit

Unique spot

Lovely lady explaining the wines. Gorgeous real country feel. Restaurant very nice but largely meat based. Has one veggie option. Worth the 7km drive up from the main road. Try the oaked Chardonnay, really good.

GROOTE POST VINEYARDS - DARLING. A little off the beaten track but worth the drive to get to this historic 18th century farm with beautiful old Cape Dutch buildings. Rustic tasting room with friendly welcoming hosts. Try the Brut Rosé NV, the Pinot Noir Rosé or the easy drinking Old Man’s Blend white or red. #touristguide #touristinmyowncountry #history #capedutch #architecture #wine #winetasting🍷 #mccbubbly #gallivant_with_g @grootepost

An excellent wine stop off on the West Coat
Apr 2019
Absolutely a great offering of super wines. A knowledgeable young lady assisted us. Pleasant surprise as there was no tasting fee.
The vineyard is slightly off the beaten track but well worth the time.
Groote Post offers some excellent wines.
