“Very impressive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The location is stunning. You drive up the mountain from Stellenbosch and park up,

The large wooden door swings open as you approach it - I felt like it was a Bond villian;s mansion.

Once inside the staff where friendly and informative. We enjoyed wine tasting and a nice coffee here.

Also, a weird thing to write .. but impressive toilets here !!!

“Unfriendly staff, overpriced, not recommended”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

On Delaire winery we expected a wine tasting. Unfortunately the staff ignored us, talked and joked to each other and didn't seem to be very enthusiastic to serve us. Maybe the wines are good, maybe the food is excellent, who knows...
As there are a lot of wineries around with friendly and helpful staff, I recommend to try these ones. Very poor, very sad experience.

“Amazing wine tasting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

What a beautiful estate.... You can see that alot of money has been spent here, and you can tell just by entering the driveway!?
Picturesque throughout... excellent service and an amazing place to come for wine tasting!
We didnt eat at the restaurants but had a cheese plate to accompany the wines we were tasting.
A must see!
