Infriendly unhelpful staff, not sure I would go back there again, perhaps just to buy some bubbly which is very good.

We went here on the recommendation of our daughter, who said it was her favourite and we can understand why. It was excellent value and we weren't rushed to try our wines. Excellent

Went with Tsiba Tsiba tours to this wine estate. Had an opportunity to taste 12 wines here by sharing with partner! We loved the champagne and chenin blanc!

Quirky place, interesting artworks and the wine was worth stopping for.

Simonsig has good sparkling wine. The Chenin Blanc is also a nice wine and a really bargain.
There are not many wines where you can get such a good price/quality relation like the Chenin Blanc that they have.
Big tasting room, friendly staff, also a nice outdoor area where you can also taste the wine if the weather permits.
