“Buy flagship wine and still pay for tasting”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

As regular visitors to wine estates and absolute red wine lovers, we visited this wine estate on our way to Stellenbosch from Somerset West one Saturday morning. The reception was friendly and the staff very chatty. The wine was good. We opted to buy some wine after tasting. Even though we bought their flagship and most expensive wines, we were still charged for wine tasting, something that will ensure that we will never return, as I feel that when someone is obviously there because they want to buy wine (and especially your most expensive ones), you should not expect them to pay for a tasting as well.

“good wine”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We had a lovely tasting outside, and the service was very good!
Wines to look out for:
Cab sav 2009 4/5 stars
Cab frank 2009 5/5 stars
other wines was good, with cognac brandy very good as well
5 wines for R30
only downside was that they still charged the tasting fee after I’ve bought 2 bottles…
