We had a lovely afternoon wine tasting and having lunch on Saturday 18 January 2014. Even though it was a very hot afternoon, we opted to do our wine tasting sitting out on the deck as the view over the dam was just so pretty and it was very entertaining watching the ducks, swans and all other birdlife. The staff was very friendly and the service excellent during the wine tasting.

Vernon and wife Louise have invested well in this classic South African winery. Including a lovely guest house and delightful restaurant. Management of the estate is first class producing reasonably priced classy wines. Vernon was at school with me in Rhodesia back in the 1960's so it is so pleasing to see him being successful.
A must to visit - to enjoy good company, food and wine.
Well done guys

The location is somewhat off the beaten track and the farm is well set amongst Granite hills with views of the Limietberg Mountains.

We were warmly welcomed by an accommodating restaurant and tasting room manager. We sat on the deck (where else) looking over the very busy duck pond. The manager gladly brought out some wines for us to taste before ordering wine to accompany our meal.

The menu lacked real interest or anything that really separates it from other offerings. The steak was properly cooked and the chef was not fearful to cook it rear as ordered, the chef did miss the boat and overcooked the salmon. Coffees were OK, the espressos missing their crema. Some complimentary delicious natural sweet Viognier was a generous end to the meal.

Overall: fair to good
Value: fair to good

A wonderful on our latest visit to Paarl. We visited for Sunday lunch with friends who have 2 young children and were not disappointed. While the adults enjoyed the the meat and seafood platters the 2 girls tucked into tasty chicken nuggets and chips. Undoubtably the best antipasti platter I have sampled. While the girls enjoyed the birds and kids area the adults indulged in some of the fabulous Ridgeback wines.
Well worth a visit and also sample there award winning wines at very reasonable prices.
