The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

Even though we live close by in Cape Town, we decided to overnight in Stellenbosch. The self-catering accommodation on Middelvlei is comfortable and spotlessly clean. It's not far to the attractions that Stellenbosch has to offer but still isolated enough to feel as if one...More

We went with 3 young, energetic boys and the setting was great. There was space to play, animals to pet and even balls and scooters! The relaxed atmosphere meant that the kids could be themselves without disturbing anyone.

Just like home - an down to earth braai, under the autumn sun. Pleasant lunch, with pleasing wines, in this child-friendly envionrment. Highly recommended.

We visited Middelvlei Wine Estae with a group of Australian visitors in the pouring rain and had a wonderful time. There was a very welcome fire being stoked up to take the chill away from the storm outside. We started with a winetasting conducting by...More

Other positive reviews say it all. It's the Stellenbosch experience (great food, wine and views), but especially for those with little ones who may not be foodies but will certainly like the farm animals (plus wallabies and the many tortoises), the sand pit, the grass...More

Amazing! Why do people visit South Africa and then go to a European Type Restaurant? At Middelvlei you can experience a South African meal together with excellent wines.

Middelvlei wine estate has a real farm feel and not so commercialized. We visited on Sunday during lunch time and discovered that they do a real good old fashioned boere braai. Unfortunately for us they only take reservations so we could only look and not...More
