We visited Harold on our trip through south Africa and even if it was a Sunday, he took some time and showed us his estate. What a Beautiful place in Earth, lovely people and wine to fall in Love with!

Lovely place with nice wine. Don't go if you in a rush since it located in a very relaxed environment. The more time you spend the better the experience becomes. Cheese platter were lovely too. Tasting hosted by winemaker himself.

Wonderful stay at Herold wines! They arranged a private wine tasting because we passed them on sunday during our Garden Route and they even made us dinner, because there were no restaurants in the area. The wine tasting was good with a nice special story...More

This was a "we have to stop somewhere near George but where?" kind of place. It turned into a must-not-miss recommendation and a 12-bottle wine purchase. A wine-tasting was followed by the shared cheese platter lunch - which was worth the visit all by itself....More
