I’ve tasted Thelema red wine many years ago and was very impressed, so we decided to visit the estate this time and the expectations were high. The estate has a beautiful access road through vineyards with a beautiful view of the Hells Hoogte mountains. The wine tasting, however, disappointed me. I normally buy at least one bottle after tastings, but walked away without buying anything. It wasn’t the Thelema I remembered.

Dear Kobus, thank you for the feedback. Was it the presentation of the wines that disappointed you or the actual taste of the wine itself? If you are ever planning to be in the area again, please email me at marketing@thelema.co.za and I will arrange for our winemaker to taste through our wines with you.

First of all the newly made tasting room has fantastic views(as per photo) could sit there all day drinking their fine wine. Special mention to Diaan also, his knowledge and passion for the wine really shone through and suggested some great tasting options. Would definitely visit again

We really appreciate your review. We will definitely pass your message on to Diaan. We really value him here at the farm. We look forward to having you come visit again. It is lovely to sit in the tasting room on a rainy day as well.

We love coming to Thelema. The wines are excellent - and teh service whilst tasting out of this Earth. And yes Noluvo: you even got me to reread Rabelais!
A great service - beyond the wines and Crescenda speaking excellent German - is the service to send wines home at very good rates.
We love it all

Thelema is at the top of the valley and has stunning views from the tasting area. You drive through vineyards to reach them and the tasting area is modern and tasteful. Excellent wines on offer for tasting and great information from the staff. I did not realise until I paid that they discount the tasting prices off anything you buy, so came away with an excellent MCC for next to nothing, which we later enjoyed by the pool at our hotel

We absolutely love the farm and the wines, and have always had brilliant service here. We've always had a wonderful time at Thelema and will continue to come back. It's a pity that when went for a tasting last weekend, having booked for 2pm, we were rushed through our wines by our waitress. We got the impression that we were not really welcome and needed to leave before closing.

We went to Themela with friends at 16h15. The tatsing room manager Creshenda didn't want to assist us she said they are close she was so rude and unprofessional, unpleasant personality she is a disgrace to the beautiful Wine estate. We phoned before hand and the lady told us we can come as it was 16h05 when we phoned. Creshenda was so rude that we left. We went to another farm and told them our experience at Thelema and before we mentioned a name they knew it's the arrogant Cheshenda. Such a beautiful place but the service one of our worst experiences ever.

Went as sort of spur of the moment tasting and were very happy!! Best stop of our day with a beautiful, modern tasting room and awesome wines. You also get two for the price if one as they serve wines from Thelema (Stellenbosh) and Southerland (Elgin). If you like Pinot noir, they have “nailed it” and have a great Shiraz as well. Definitely fun to compare grapes from the two regions! Must stop on your wine tour!!

We absolutely loved how welcoming the staff was here! We tasted 6 wines for 100R. Wines were delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the Cabernet and the white dessert wines as well. The views are so beautiful as well. Definitely recommend stopping for a visit!

Crescenda Willemse hosted us for a very fine (and fun) wine tasting. She is a most personable and accomplished lady, and made our visit so much more enjoyable.

We have been to many wineries all over the "wine world", and done the usual "tasting bit", but this was very special and excellently done - thanks in the main to Crescenda.

The wines are also top quality, and it is well worth a visit, as it is in a lovely setting. The "mint" cab sav was one of the most unusual wines we have ever tasted - tho' a bit young, it was a fascinating wine that is a MUST TRY.
