“Still one of our favorites”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

Delheim, its slogan “Worth the Journey”, has always been one of our favorite wine estates over the years and it was good to return this last trip. It has excellent wine and is in a lovely setting, with views of the vineyards and right up to the Simonsberg mountains. Vines are clearly labeled right next to the car park to give people an idea of the grape types. It’s at the end of a road, past Muratie Estate, so it doesn’t seem to get quite as busy (as Spier or Fairview, for example). This is one of the original Stellenbosch wine route estates. In April 1971, the Stellenbosch Wine Route was founded

Delheim today is owned and run by Spatz Sperling, his wife Vera, and a large Sperling clan. Delheim is a large complex of lovely rambling old buildings, nowadays connected with brick paving, softened with many trees and greenery. Here too is a small kids play structure.
The tasting takes place in an old-looking cellar, with people sitting at individual tables and benches mostly, and the servers/hosts bringing the wines to taste. They are knowledgeable, and do a great job of talking about the wines in a quiet, low-key way. Wine tasting is R25 for any 6 wines and juice is available for kids. We enjoyed the wines, as always, as well as pottering around in the shop.
There’s a great garden restaurant here as well---on a clear day there is a view all the way to Table Mountain in the distance. It serves breakfast, lunch and snacks, with a variety of dishes, from cheese platters, to traditional German or South Africa fare.
Delheim is on Knorhoek Road, a little north of Stellenbosch on the main road to Paarl.
Open daily 9am-5pm, except New Year’s Day, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, Christmas Day.
For more information see www.delheim.com (English, but German available).

“It just keeps getting better”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

We have been visiting Delheim for the best part of 15 years and it never fails to please. The restaurant in the garden is such a relaxing place with beautifully maintained gardens and such a sense of peace. The food is very good value and of a high qualityy and their wines also. I personally like the Spatzendreck and their Sauvignon Chenin Blanc. If you haven't been do your yourself a favour, turn off the R44 and pay a visit to Delheim you won't be disappointed.

“Great Wines in a Spectacular Setting”
Reviewed 5 January 2013

We really enjoyed our wine tasting at Delheim. For 25 ZAR, you get to try 6 different wines of your choice. It is not required that the entire party make the same selections, so you can try more than 6 if you are with someone willing to share. Our sommelier was highly knowledgeable about the different wines and expertly guided us in our choices and the order of our tastings. They are able to ship to Europe however there was no pressure to buy. The surrounding views are amazing, be sure to save some time to stroll about and snap a few photos.

“One of the better wineries to visit in the Cape”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

Delheim has been around a long time, and it shows. It gets smoother and slicker and appeals a bit more every time I go there. Their Spatzendreck is a winner. Beautiful setting and most appealing in every way.

“Great wines, good service and food”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

Beautiful wineyard with fantastic wines in a very nice atmosphere. The service was also good and they got us a nice table for lunch without booking. The lunch was good and we also had the tour of the winary which was very interesting.
