Here you are able to shade beneath trees and enjoy a wonderful light lunch with great wines. Well worth a visit.

A lovely wine estate, but be prepared to take your time over the wine tasting - it took about an hour and we were rather concerned that we might miss our lunch booking - the tasting fee is R20 each for 5 wines. They have some nice wines, but most seemed rather 'young', perhaps because they are used to exporting rather a lot and are not allowing the wines to mature enough. Their Fantail range is good value for money though. Lunch was delightful and reasonably priced, although the menu is not extensive. The service staff were friendly, polite and answered our questions with confidence. Even though we were rather late to lunch we didn't feel rushed and finished our delightful Fantail rose wine in the shade of the gazebo restaurant by 4pm!

I enjoyed the fact that there is a small chapel on the estate in which to have the ceremony. However, the venue for the reception was a long narrow room, which made hearing speeches and feeling part of the occasion a little difficult. I also felt that the tables were too close together, making movement within the room fairly restricted. The food was excellent, however, particularly the main course, which they managed to serve warm and simultaneously to all the guests on a particularly cold night.
