Attraction details
Owner description: The Raka brand was named after Piet Dreyer's black fishing vessel. Piet's first love has always been the sea. For some 36 years he braved the storms and challenges of the coast, ever in search of the best catch. It is with this same passion that the Dreyer family now pursue the art of wine making. With the rich blessing of earth and elements, the help of a dedicated workforce, the enthusiasm of winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern gravity flow cellar, Piet Dreyer produces his award-winning Raka wines.

The Stanford wine route is not as well known as the Stellenbosch region, but the wines are superb. Raka has a beautiful tasting room and in particular their red wines are something special.

We have been drinking Raka wines for many years now and have also been to visit the winery a few times for tasting and to buy wine. In my mind, Raka Winery produces some of the finest wines of that region. Mr Piet Dreyer is one of our favourite wine "characters" and adds to the romance surrounding this label. Try specifically the Malbec and Cabernet Franc. We also appreciated that they allowed us to buy wine even though they were closing for the day when we stopped there last week. Always smiling and welcoming, a definite stop when we are in the area.

Josef Dreyer was here when we visited the winery. He is a delightful chap and we had a very pleasant tasting experience. Josef is producing some pretty decent wines, worth a visit if you are in the area.
If Josef wasn't around I would suggest it's probably more like 3 stars.

Raka is my all time favorite must-stop winery tucked in the mountain valley near Stanford. The wine tasting hosts are excellent and well informed, and the wine must not be missed! I highly recommend a visit or two!
