“Disappointment”
Reviewed May 30, 2009

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.

“wine tour”
Reviewed March 3, 2007

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!
