Close to the town so easy to visit. Beautiful tasting rooms with an outside area under the trees looking over a pretty dam with game in the field. We had the picnic which was perfect, a must if you are visiting. Very friendly staff and family who are only too pleased to help. Lovely wines , white and red which we purchased. Also now doing boutique beer which is also very good, took some away as well. Will definitely be back

In South Africa year 2012,Saw a well placed sign on the roadside and thought lets have a quick look.
It was a good decision,we had found Remhoogte Wine Estate.A lovely setting,a backdrop of game, lovely food and the lovely Maggie Wheeler a really good front person for this family run wine estate.We had a particularly nice afternoon in the sun and in nice company.While we were there we sampled some excellent wines. We brought back home (UK) Some 2011 Bushvine Pinotage.This evening we had a bottle with dinner,it was marvelous, reminding us of the visit and putting me in mind to post this, A little late,but better late than never!

A 10 minute drive and you arrive, to be met by pleasant family members, all willing to please. Bottle of wine comes with picnic basket, but we were still encouraged to try other wines - who could resist?! Individual hot quiches served as we sat at a table in the garden overlooking field with zebra, springbok and wildebeest. Picnic also included generous amounts of cheese, bread, hummus and pickles, topped off with an ice cream. Go try!

We picked this winery to pre-order a picnic and I'm so glad we did- from the wonderful setting, game watching, delicious food, wonderful wine and friendly staff- everything was perfect!

It was an extremely hot day so we were glad there was a lovely table in the shade, decorated with agapanthus and overlooking the lake. The staff brought us lots of iced water then the delicious picnic- fresh bread, cheeses, home-made tarts, salad and more- too much to finish. A chilled bottle of their chenin blanc washed it all down nicely.
A wonderful couple of hours was spent soaking in the wonderful views not only of the animals but the mountains and vines in the background- amazing!
We were so impressed by how attentive the staff were, not intrusive but aware of how hot it was so bringing us fresh water and ice after we had a stroll to the lake for a closer look at the zebra and impala. An ice-cream finished the meal off perfectly and I would recommend this place to anyone.
