A very warm and friendly welcome at Packwood Country Estate, beautiful views and tranquil setting followed by one of the best wine tastings I've had. Amazing SavBlanc wines and the Pinot Noir was superb. Highly recommend a visit to the estate.

We had a really nice visit to Packwood Wines!! The owner and winemaker was so friendly and knowledgeable, and she made us feel very welcome and appreciated! They have three adorable dogs who were very sweet and loveable. It's also a dairy farm, and they have a cute little venue called the Lunch Box where they serve cheese platters. Their... More

We really enjoyed staying at Packwood Country Estate. The lady at reception treated us as royalty when we arrived and she made arrangements for us taste the wine offering, the cheese platter was great especially when paired with the Packwood Pinot Noir 2013 - wow. The chalet was great and after we got the fire going it was quite toasty... More

We were lucky enough to be taken to Packwood on our garden route day tour with 'Rockingtheroute'. We are so glad they took us there! What an absolutely magical setting! We were treated to a wine tasting that easily competes with (and beats) many of the bigger wine route farm tastings. There is a limited selection of wine as they... More

Farm fresh creamy milk, homemade butter & cheese, pure honey and award wining wines on a beautiful farm on the border of the Knysna forest, with sea views of Plettenberg Bay. Family owned farm that offers peaceful accommodation (variety of options) in homely environment. Truly, a gem.

Lovely setting to taste Packwood's wines, which were excellent. Very enjoyable cheese and bread lunch, although I am not a great lover of soft cheese (3 soft, 2 hard). Very friendly and informative hosts and staff. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Lovely ambience, fantastic view, and incredible home made cheeses which perfectly compliment the wines on offer. The 5km drive off the main road up to the farm sets the scene. We did the wine tasting followed by the cheese platter lunch which is a must! Looking forward to seeing Vicky and staff again.

Went to visit Packwood on a rainy and miserable day, and what a nice surprise! Lovely wine and cheese platter with an amazing view! I especially enjoyed the Pinot Noir! Great hospitality and well worth the drive! A must visit when you are in the area.

The setting on this farm is beautiful - the views, the garden - very peaceful and pretty. The service is superb! The gentleman who welcomed us was friendly and hospitable as was the waitress! The lunch was cheese with some condiments, bread and salad. The price was R175/head. For an ordinary salad and cheese, not homemade but bought, I couldn't... More
