The Raka brand was named after Piet Dreyer's black fishing vessel. Piet's first love has always been the sea. For some 36 years he braved the storms and challenges of the coast, ever in search of the best catch. It is with this same passion that the Dreyer family now pursue the art of wine making. With the rich blessing of earth and elements, the help of a dedicated workforce, the enthusiasm of winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern gravity flow cellar, Piet Dreyer produces his award-winning Raka wines.

Wat a friendly bunch of people offering a wide assortment of some of the best wine produced in South Africa! A tasteful cellar with a magnificent view. Many of their award winning wines ons display and on offer...highly tempting to buy much more than initially planned to do! Absolutely worthwhile to visite and to add to your wine collection.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff, very helpful and informative. Left buying a few more bottles than we are able to carry onboard our flight, so a couple were drunk before ! "Bliss"

Was very excited to come all the way to Raka for the wine tasting, but unfortunately was very disappointing! The variety of wines available for tasting was very limiting, and the best wines not available at all. So if you want to taste it, you have to buy it. I would gladly pay more and taste all the wines.

Great wines bursting with flavor. Raja wines are quality not quantity driven. Personal favorites are the Spliced and Shiraz. Enjoy!

It's not easy to please guests who arrive at 10h30 for a wine tasting; we'd all finished breakfast only an hour before and were hardly in the mood for alcohol at that time. But Raka is on an isolated hillside with lovely views and we were given a warm welcome, so happily settled down to start our tasting experience. Their... More

Some of my favourite wine in SA. Venue very tranquil. Even though they are situated in an isolated area and it really is just a tasting room, a small restaurant or bistro option would allow travellers to have a quick bite to eat before hitting the road.
