We met with family and friends for a relaxed lunch at The Dornier Wine Estate restaurant. My meal was good but overall the consensus was that the quality was variable. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the different wines that we sampled from the Estate

Modern architectural design, the winery on a reflective pond, is a total opposite to the classical style the Dornier Homestead villa, where accommodation is available. There is also a popular up-scale restaurant Dornier Bodega located next to the Dornier Homestead. These attractions make Dornier Wine...More

We had high hopes when we got here because the place was so gorgeous and we had a great view at our table. However, the food was subpar in comparison to other similar venues in Stellenbosch. Our salad was over dressed, and our cheese board...More

Right by the outside restaurant/bistro area is a children's play area suitable for young children. Parents and Grandparents can relax enjoy wine and tapas or a restaurant meal while the children play.

A beautiful vineyard off the beaten path. Not the most well known among tourists, a but secluded, so a more relaxed atmosphere. Beautiful scenery and lovely wine. Try the chenin blanc pinotage. The malbec is also very unique. One of the prettier vineyards!
