This was our final stop during a day of wine tasting in South Africa, and it was the best of the bunch. Excellent wine, the service was attentive but unrushed, and the wine was excellent.

The wine cellar is very nice, but the wines on the wine tasting are not much more than OK.
The steak and chips lunch was nice.
All and all - if you're coming to taste and buy good wine at reasonable prices - it's not the winery I'd recommend.

We visited Rust en Vrede on a Saturday and enjoyed the 5 wine tasting option seated at the cafe tables out on the patio. The vines overhead were turning to red and views of the mountains beyond were framed by the ancient oak trees on the lawns. The wines we tasted were excellent and the venue was very pleasant. We succumbed to the tempting menu offer of the Winemaker's Lunch - thick juicy char grilled steak with a heap of wonderful crunchy matchstick fries and a dressed salad accompanied by a glass of the estate shiraz. If the steak is anything to go by, the chef is seriously good, so we are planning a return visit to the restaurant itself.

The estate is at the end of the road, the deepest among a series of Stellenbosch wineries. The name Rust en Vrede is Dutch meaning "Rest & Peace", and the place seems true to its name with its peaceful surroundings in the hills. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try its famous restaurant, but we did do a round of nice wine-tasting while sitting in the shady garden under the trees.

Whilst staying at a nearby spa, my mum and I were treated to a meal at this beautiful estate... The service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing and we had a lovely evening.
The ease with which they catered to our slightly challenging dietary requirements was refreshing - they tailored the menu to each of our needs to create a delicious and creative meal.
We were also delighted to be able to contribute to a local charity via a small addition to our bill.
The only slight disappointment was that their amazing wine list didn't include any local fizz!
