Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Reviewed 21 August 2014

I think the main difference I had at Raka is that we spoke to one of the family members that own the farm. You could really pick up that they are passionate about there farm and wines. Over and above this the wines great!

An awesome wine with the cheese platter lunch at Mosaic! A light option for mid-day lunch. Memorable finish.

“What a Treat !”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We visited Raka wine estate near Stanford to taste and buy some wine. The venue is great and the staff most welcoming. The selection of wines was excellent and we enjoyed the experience wholeheartedly. The wine is excellent value for money and we bought a good selection of wine to bring home. Well done Raka/ Dreyer family. It's time to expand and add food.
