This place had great wines. They only have a few varieties, but what they do, they do phenomenally. The Pinotage, Chenin Blanc, and Pinotage-Syrah all were very, very good (sadly, at the time, they weren't distributing to the US). The views here were beautiful, and...More

The restaurant at Rijk’s just outside Tulbagh (also known as Governor’s) is a top class eatery. The service is friendly and efficient, the venue is beautiful and the food is great. And the boutique wines are in a league of their own.

Lovely lunch venue with full views of vines and mountain. Visit on a sunny day to sit on the veranda. Food is excellent (limited menu but all prepared beautifully). The service was also very friendly and efficient.

The tasting room was understaffed and we only tasted 1 way before we left. Tasting venue has a cold decor that does not feel inviting or interesting. Was very disappointed with the experience as other highly recommend Rijk’s. Saronsberg and Lemberg offers way better experience.
