My wife and I visited and she tasted 3 different drinks. We purchased almost R1300 worth of alcohol yet they still slapped a R30 tasting fee on to yhe account. Im all for paying for tasting, but waver it if more than R1000 is spent!

The tasting room seemed quite busy, so on arrival we weren't welcomed, but rathered left to ourselves to determine what the cellar had to offer. During our tasting we were left for extended periods of time alone. We were disappointed with this as most other groups had the product explained and the cellar even shown to them. Service only seemed... More

An oasis in the desert. Beautiful venue, expert guide through the various creations on offer. A true education in the pleasure of enjoying the fruit of vine at its best! True passion reflected in every detail. A rarity often sought, seldom found. Thank you for opening your doors to us.

We stopped for a brandy tasting...., knowing that there was no more of the 10 year Brandy...., and also for lunch! We were also treated with their new Rageltjie the Beer brew..., and all of the above was a treat! The pie was delicious and the salad made fresh! Definitely worth the stop! Can't wait for the 10 year Brandy... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our establishment. Unfortunately, as you have mentioned, we are a boutique cellar and distillery and as such demand for our products can sometimes exceed our production capacity. Creating a single quality potstill brandy can take over a decade, which makes it very difficult to meet increased demand, as you can imagine. Rushing... More

Great wine and brandy tasting experience in a beautiful cellar. The lady who presented the wines was interesting and the fire place was cosy for a warm winters day
