The winery has very lovely grounds and is a wonderful place to stay for lunch and taste wines. They offer a rather large selection of varietals/blends. You'll also discover a friendly staff, very clean bathrooms, and adorable picture cookies with the estate's mascot, the owl!

We went for a wine tasting with UK friends visiting South Africa for the first time. I took them to Neethlingshof as I remember it to be one of the premier wine estates. The service was very friendly, but our tasting coincided with large group of students from Pretoria arriving for a group tasting in the room next door -... More

Just arrived this morning to Capetown and were driving past like 3 times without finding the entrance to the Estate. A former Dresdner Bank friend of ours had recommended this Estate for a wine tasting when we came to the region, so we struggled to find it, eventually successful. From the gent at the gate to the reception at the... More

Having visited here many times over the years, pre-dating the tasting room remodelling, this wine estate continues to stand out from the crowd. Their wines offer something different from the vast competition. Try the Gewurtztraminer, it's floral and semi sweet but it's not quite what you'd expect from this variety. No cloying sickliness just a wonderful bouquet and fruity taste.... More

We had n wine tasting here and we were very impressed. The wines are wonderful, some of the best we tasted the whole week. But what impressed us most was our interesting wine connoisseur called Jean Louis from France. We truly had a fantastic time while he taught us so many interesting facts about the farm and wine. Thank you... More

The setup was as good as always, it was the first time I did the wine and food pairing though, with my missus. The combinations of the pairings really brought out the different flavor in the different wines. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to treat their special person to a great combination of tapas and wine.

Our waitress reminded me of a stern school teacher - very strict and to the point, not friendly and making us feel comfortable. We ordered fish, which was good, but the veggies were over cooked, limp and really not tasty. Wine by the glass is served in a carafe and the stern waitress overturned my husband's carafe just as she... More
