Stunning wine tasting under the oak trees on a wintery Saturday. The steaks was cook to perfection. We really enjoyed and can higly recommend. The wines from the best in Stellenbosch. We will certainly be back soon to stock up again.

You have a choice of a piece of great meat or fish together with a glass of the excellent red wine of the estate, enjoying it in the garden under the oak trees in a wonderful atmosphere. The service is superb.

We didnt have time to stay in Stellenbosch for a few days. Overnight stay which we spent most of the time here. Food and wine were out of this planet. Host was best weve had on the trip. Knew where the herbs were grown. Mindblowing. Passionate and couldnt fault them.

This is one of the most beautiful red wine estates in the Stellenbosh area. The wine is of good quality but the entire atmosphere has changed from a welcoming friendly estate to a money-driven machine. The estate lost something along the way and I hope they pick it up where they lost it.
