Despite the fact that we arrived outside tour times, the staff took us on a quick tour. I was impressed by the cellar and the stories. Then we sampled some wines, which we actually know quite well. It was fun to partake nevertheless. Very scenic. A must see. We did not have time to have breakfast at the restuarant.

We went here for the tasting only and not the tour. You could taste 5 wines of your choosing for 30Rand, which i thought was a reasonable price. I chose all sparkling wines - as they produce a vast quantity of sparkling wine.
The tasting room was quite large with a number of big tables around - so it felt a huge place for the 2 of us. After the lady poured our first wine, she went into a back room and we were left with empty glasses for a bit - so I had to get up and ask to taste the next wine.
I have no issue with the wines at all - the experience was just not as friendly as some of the other vineyards in the area.

Our second winery of the day in Franschhoek, and the best way to describe it is ‘tour group’. Although the showmanship with the sabrage was good, we felt we were being shunted around and lectured. Wines (mainly sparkling) were ok, but not overly exciting.

We went here for what we thought would be the first of several wine tours that day. Almost 3 hours later, we stepped outside, happy and fairly sozzled after sampling 6 glasses of their excellent wine. The owner is a real showman and gives an entertaining overview of the wine, including getting fellow tour members to have a go at taking the top of the bottle with a sabre! All good fun and excellent value wine. The restaurant is supposed to be excellent, but we couldn't get in - book ahead!
