We came wanting both wine tasting and something to eat. We sampled the meat and vegetarian braais- both delicious and plentiful (sweet pumpkin fritters - fantastic) - and we sampled our own choice of four of their excellent wines. An altogether wonderful experience- highly recommended.

Visited without an appointment to do wine tasting. It was very busy when we arrived and we had long waits between tastings. We did not have lunch but it looks like a very nice place to have a good braaivleis with all the trimmings.More

This was my second visit to Middelvlei and it never disappoints. The winetasting is fab and the food scrumptious. Love the farm style mugs for coffee. Love seeing the animals and the amazing view. Staff is great!
