We truly enjoyed the beautiful domain with astonishing view on the mountains around. The wine tasting was excellent, with very good information about all the wines we tried. Take some time to walk around as the place is incredibly beautiful!

Amazing that you can still get to a wine farm 20 mins from CT CBD. One of SA's historic Wine Farms & well worth a visit, especially if you do not have time to travel to Franschhoek.

The wines are great but the attention from staff is less than other places. You can feel that this place is to busy. The tasted wines were nice.
