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!
