On top of the Hell's Hoogte Pass, overlooking the Dwarsriver Valley - can't beat tis setting. Striking white interiour of the restaurant with a bright orange S in the centre. The entire building and grounds are magnificet. The food offering suits this environment. Highly recommended!

This estate certainly has the wow factor when it comes to spectacular scenery in a fantastic setting. Superb wines too.
However, I do have a couple of things to mention.
Firstly, we went with friends who are local to the area and they were disappointed about how upmarket it had become. So if you visited a few years ago and are going back you will find some changes.
Secondly, we did feel slightly pressured to buy all the time when we were tasting the wine. Consequently we did not stay as long as we might have have done. So if you are new to wine tasting you may have a more relaxing experience in one of the smaller, more intimate estates.

Delaire is a beautiful estate, with great views, a cool cellar view, and a nice tasting room. However, they charge per glass for the tasting (10 rand) and you don't get more than other places which charge around 25 rand for 6. The service was a bit slow, maybe because we were there at the end of their day. After 2 tastings they came and told us that they were closed. Would have been nice to get warned that the 2nd one was our last.....Wine was good but not our favorite.

We were recommended to go for dinner by our host in Stellenbosch. Not knowing what to expect we were blown away. The winery and restuarant were absolutely stunning and we recommend you arrive prior to sunset so that you can watch the mountains opposite as the sun sets while having a cocktail.

The service was immpecable with experts on hand to guide to the correct wines to have with your meal selection. The food and wine were both excellent and we left feeling very spoilt. A great night and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Stellenbosch
