Joy (co-owner) was amazing - she took the time to explain the history of the winery, each wine and was very personable. Each and every of the tastings were wonderful! Hands down, my favorite of the wineries visited in Franschhoeek!

We love SA's little boutique wineries and this place is just what we like about them. Friendly interaction with the winemaker, great wines, and a fun visit. We sat at a table outside and talked about how the wine was made, the history of the farm, and even the gods that lived at the winery.

Very nice experience in the cottage! The cottage is beautiful and clean and gives on a nice view! The complementary wine tasting was nice and the wine excellent! One of the best in Franschhoek!! We even purchased a bottle! The owners were very welcoming and we really enjoyed our stay!
We would definitely recommend this place.

I've been to wine rooms all over the world and there are few places I've been received as warmly. Moreover, having now tasted several different wines from various South African wineries, I enjoyed more of the Stony Brook wines than any other label I've had in South Africa. I am hyper critical of wines - especially when French varietals are used - and these guys are doing it right. So far the only not miss winery I've tried in South Africa.
