  • Lovely relaxed atmosphere perfect for a lazy afternoon. The wine and chocolate pairing is sublime and the staff are well trained and pleasant. Big plus for winter snuggle by their fireplace... The wines are exquisite although not a very wide variety there will be something for your taste.
  • Just awesome. Beautiful italianesque estate. Quite a few wines in the tastings, most of which I enjoyed. But my fav was the chocolate they have specially made to go with three of the tastings.. I bought extra. If you have only one winery to try in the area, make it this one.
  • This place deserves a 5 star for being one of the charmiest places that I have been on earth. If you want to score, bring you lady/dude here. It's amazing ho the atmosphere of love and tender touches your soul. There is a magic behind the wine tasting, specially the one that you taste 10 different wines.
  • We loved this tasting. Chocolate and wine. Its a cozy farm, we informed folks and great wines. Beautifull farm aswell.
  • This estate has beautiful views and the ambience is amazing. Being December the Christmas beetles are in full swing which adds to the experience. The music played in the background was soothing and perfect for the venue. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable. The price was very reasonable at R60 for the wine tasting
