This is an interesting winery, you are never sure who will show up to pour wine for you. you might end up with the owner or winemaker. The wines are very good and we really love the pinotage port.

A wine farm with a very rich history, situated close to Riebeeck West. An excellent wine tasting is offered by the owner ... free of charge! A visit to the nearby birthplace of General Jan C Smuts is a must and very informative... definitely worthwhile.

Well worth a visit - they have easy drinking wines at very reasonable prices as well as reserve wines at higher prices. Their 2013 Pinotage is particularly good.

We recently went to Pulpit Rock for a wine tasting. They have quite a large range of wines. Those we tasted were pleasant and were purchased at very reasonable prices.
