At Mellasat Vineyards we reckon we’re a bit different from the usual tasting facilities which you are used to. We have something for everyone from wine connoisseurs to the casual, everyday wine drinker. Our selection of wines varies from red wines for those cold winter days, white wines for something lighter, a moorish dessert wine as well as a delicate rosé…….. and then the most unique of them all - a White Pinotage, which is only made by us.Our tasting room has stunning views of the Paarl valley and the craggy Klein Drakenstein Mountains. We also do private functions, dinning and wine & food paring events.

We visited on a Wiki deal wine tasting plus picnic. Fantastic value. We met the owner of the vineyard always a bonus. We were fortunate that they were very quiet when we went and our tasting took 2 hours, lots of information and discussion. The picnic was lovely good range of cheese, meats and salads plus home produced tapeade, chutney... More

It was my birthday and we had not planned anything specific so I decided to meander parts of the lesser known Paarl wine route. Searched on a map and found Mellasat !! Which apparently is simply a combination of the owners names. Not being a Pinotage fan I was surprised to see the sign " Home of the White Pinotage"... More

Home of the white Pinotage, this place is not to be missed. Affordable, excellent tasting wines and great service every time. This place is not to be missed when visiting Paarl. There is some steep competition in the area but this wine farm knows how to pull everything together. Be sure to order a picnic (this must be done ahead... More

Ok, there are plenty of winemakers in the area, most of them have a very touristic approach to that, they won't give you the best of their wines... and the tasters don't mind, because most of them are using wine tasting as a holiday experience... with a Bus from venue to venue. This here, Mellasat, is nothing like that. It... More

Received a warm welcome from the team on duty. Enjoyed a tasting of a couple of their flagship wines - the white Pinotage being of particular interest, together with the Tempranillo. We were shown the "Cemetery of Forgotten Wines" - a wonderful opportunity to explore old wines and in particular, their labels. Picnics are also on offer for those who'd... More

Everything about Mellasat is quality. Their wines are so original, the quarterly pop - up restaurant provides exceptional food and to be invited to their wine club members' braai is always a very enjoyable day. Stephen, Janet and Gizelle make a great team and have a very professional approach to ensuring the customers enjoy themselves.

If you feel like, "Really, I need a place where I or we can just 'be' for a day", this is the place to visit. First of all the surroundings are just amazing. Old oak trees, vineyards up to the tasting room area, all beneath the backdrop of the mountains of the Du Toitskloof Pass. Secondly, Mellasat wines are very... More
