“First ever wine tasting in SA”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

What a beautiful location very close to our self-catering at Bergvliet. The staff were amazing, telling us all about the wines and with no pressure to buy. One thing will live on in our memory -as we arrived two baboons were chasing the supposed guard dog right through the tasting room - unfortunately no photograph available. Scary but funny at the same time. Only one thing stopped us giving 5 stars - they forgot to give us back our tasting fees on purchase of wine and we had to go back another day to collect it and buy more Buiten Blanc (white and we are not normally white wine drinkers. Overall a really good experience.

“One of the best”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

We went to about 4 vineyards in the area. This was by far one of the best. The girls knew their stuff and was so keen to ensure you understood the differences in each wine you were trying. No pressure selling, no suggestion that you should buy, frankly just perfect. Couple that with the amazing location and you have a good afternoon for not much money....yep - nearly perfect.

Annoyingly I dropped the bottle we bought when we got back to the hotel. Not sure if it was a subconscious action to do a return trip!

“Excellent Our Favourite Vineyard”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

First visit was '96 when we lunched out in the oak lined central gardens enjoying excellent Christine wine that was unforgettable & we have visited each year since when we stay in Hout Bay. We love their picnic lunches & have invited all our guest to sample the delights of their homemade pate, cheeses & various pickles...a must do but book ahead.
