Words cannot describe the beauty of this estate. If you read this and you are planning to visit Cape Town: GO TO DELAIRE GRAFF!!!! You will not find a more beautiful spot in Cape Town in my opinion. If you are not going to eat or stay there just take a walk through the beautiful grounds and the main building housing the wine vats and restaurant. Have to mention that I have not eaten at the restaurant yet.

We really enjoyed our visit to this winery on a cold snowy day in the Western Cape. The views of the snow-capped Simonsberg mountains around us were superb. The driveway is planted with fynbos and as everything is in flower at the moment, it made for a superb sight. The staff at the wine tasting lounge are friendly and knowledgeable and the ambience was relaxed and happy. The cost of the winetasting is R10 a wine for their "ordinary" wines and R25 for their special reserve wines. We came away with several bottles of their excellent and vowed to return and eat in their restaurant.

We traveled all over the wine country while in Cape Town and Delaire Graff was over the top compared to many other wineries in terms of their views and the estate itself. It was our favorite. We arrived via helicopter which was a special treat and were treated to a private wine tasting and amazing lunch on the terrace. Ours was a special day trip for sure. The food was delicious and the wine spectacular! The artwork inside and out will not disappoint as well as the grounds surrounding the estate.
Even if you do not stay here go for lunch on the terrace. It is quite memorable!

You must be prepared to pay well above local rates for meals here. Food is good service good.
But I will not eat there again.

Delaire is the most beautiful wine estate, with lovely art, restaurants, great wines and the most wonderful view. I have had dinner at the main restaurant and lunch at Indochine. Both wonderful, but more on the expensive side. Definitely worth a visit.
