Did this as part of a 6 wine vineyard tasting tour and on this one, did a tour on the wine making wit the tasting at the end. Knowledgeable guide with great insight. Salt caramel and sweet wine anyone?

What an incredible experience! We did the salt and wine pairing. Our minds were blown by the fascinating flavours and perfect pairings. Very special opportunity to try salts that we didn't even know existed from all around the world, and see how they compliment our local wines. JC and Andre were such wonderful, knowledgeable hosts, and we were generously gifted... More

I tasted the 6 wine combo and my wife tasted the 3 fortified wine (dessert wine) combo. Both was nice but it took to long from ordering to the beginning of the tasting.

I do enjoy visiting good vineyard shop/outlets and this is one of my favourites due the the friendliness and just how well laid out the wines and and the variety available. Priced very competitively there is something to appeal to everyone.

I would strongly recommend to avoid visiting the estate. We arrived today at 1.45 for a visit, and although the indications were it was open until 4.00 pm, we were told it will close at 2:00 pm. Given that we were six people and had travelled from far, we kindly requested to have a whiskey tasting within the 15 min... More

Very interesting tour including tasting of Fleut du Cap wines in the cellars. Required walking short distances up the hill to the cellars and over walkways and down stairs in the storage areas. Unfortunately when we were there, we could not access the area where the iconic carved barrels are kept. Our guide, Josh, was very friendly and informative. When... More

Can accommodate large groups for tastings. Not a place to take your children. About 45min from Cape Town. Karine a superb host and very knowledgeable at the front desk. There desert wine... More

We went to this place to get a tour as it was recommended by the vine hopper. It was very superficial and not worth the time. Cost included tastings so the price was not an obstacle. The wine was so mediocre that it really was not worth it. You can't visit them all and this one can easily be skipped.

Wine tasting and museum plus an 'in-mountain' cellar experience, time permitting. Best to try and have a dedicated tasting from one of their experienced tasting staff so call in advance to check. For groups, see if they will spring for a tasting of a variety of the Distell wine Brands they have on offer. For specialists, check out if you... More
