La Petite Ferme was recommended to us by friends for lunch as a 'not-to-be-missed' experience. We booked ourselves in for the wine tour at 11am followed by lunch (note that the wine tour is free if you stay for lunch). The setting was absolutely superb with panoramic views over the valley. We gathered on the lawn for the wine tour and the patriarch of La Petite Ferme himself arrived to talk to us. He was a wonderful and engaging host, talking us through the vines, describing how he built the house, taking us down to the cellar and having us taste wine directly from one of the barrels. We thought it was amazing that he still takes the time to do the tours himself and it was the best cellar tour we experienced during our trip to South Africa. The wine tasting was absolutely amazing as well. After the tour had ended, we were shown to our lovely table in the garden. We had many many gorgeous meals in South Africa but I have to say this was the best. My slow cooked lamb with plums was a delight (I cannot understand why a previous reviewer did not like this). I cannot think of a single bad word to say about our visit to La Petite Ferme and we will definitely be going back, and next time we will book accomodation here too! Do not miss out on this experience.
