Just off the N2 on an untarred road with beautiful forest scenery. Relaxed outside tasting area overlooking a beautiful valley and mountains. White, rose, pinot noir and bubbly. Wines quite different, but delicious. Cheese platters are very good and plentiful albeit a bit pricey. Worth a visit.

4 very lovely tastings hosted by Elise. Their MCC is delicious. The rose is barrel fermented for 3 months. Two of the cheeses are made on the farm and are very nice. Lovely views and peaceful environment. Cant take many people so booking is essential.

We enjoyed a lovely wine tasting with the best view. Ilze was our host and added a personal touch to the experience. Well worth a visit. Enjoy the lovely wines at a nice slow pace. And don't forget to greet their basset hound, Fred!

Our quest to find wine in the Garden Route lead us to Packwood. After the 6km drive on gravel, we arrived expectantly at the gate. We curiously walked in to the most unique and intimate tasting experience of our life. Sitting on hay stacks in the lush gardens, we had the privilege of the owner and wine maker Vicky, conducting...

The cheese made by the lady who served us was delicious and the hot bread was the perfect accompaniment for the cheese platter. Lovely setting for a big group to share the platters whilst wine tasting.

Packwood is a fine example of how wineries in the Western Cape used to be before commercialisation set in. Beautiful views and rustic venue. Ashley did a brilliant job of telling us all about the wines and the tasting was a great success. The cheese lunch was very tasty with ample servings of cheese made on the farm. Lovely bread...

Worth the visit, with a stunning view. Very nice wines and friendly staff. We had a delicious cheese platter and salad. But didn't stay for the night. The pinot noir is very good and award winning. They also have nice white wines and rosé. Go there!

Packwood is a family and owner run farm and wine estate. Every cheese, salad and wine is made on the farm. The platters are delicious and home made, the wine tasting is personal, interactive and informative. Ashley is quirky and knows their wine inside and out. An epic wine tasting experience all round... and you cant beat the view! Go...

Popped in to do some wine tasting and loved the personal touch of the owner giving us the wines to taste and telling us their story. Stunning place and we enjoyed sharing a cheese platter and a bottle of wine. Delicious and yummy and a wonderful outing. Thank you.
