We have visited this winery with our tour guide and it was a very nice experience, especially due to the two sweet dogs and the friendly owner giving it a very private and intimate feel. Perfectly organized with the shipping partner in Belgium!

Joy came running as we pulled up and told us that although they only do tastings on Sundays by appointment, she'd happily open for us. We had our own personal tasting and it was truly personal and passionate! We could see why they have five wines in the running for 5 star Platters... We appreciated the time and effort and... More

We were recommended Stony Brook by our hotel after a disappointing tasting at another vineyard. An excellent recommendation as Stony Brook was in a different league in terms of quality of wines, input and value. Tastings are by appointment and Joy , the owner, was charming and informative. We were not rushed and Joy was only too pleased to answer... More

This place is so pretty and the wine is good. Our favourite was the Ghost Gum white and the Shiraz. Both very interesting and yummy. We will definitely revisit here at some point - it was just a bit busy when we were there so the tasting took some time.

We have been coming here for many years and now we no longer live in SA but when we are back we always make a visit to Stony Brook. The wine is amazing and is well priced, most 4 or 5 stars. A must visit vineyard when in Franschhoek.

We were recommend to visit Stoney Brook by our hotel Le Residence. Our tasting was a private event hosted by Lisa. We were made to feel welcome in a room with a wood burner and family dog. We were given the history of the vineyard and information relating to the current family. We tried approx 7 wines and was given... More

We were greeted by their sweet dog, Chelsea and things got even better from there! It was a lovely autumn afternoon so we sat in the courtyard and tasted their delicious, reasonable priced wines. We highly recommend visiting this boutique wine farm!

This wine tasting stood out for me because not only was the wine very good but we enjoyed the very relaxed but expert information imparted by Joy McNaught. It is clear that this family run business create the wines from a great passion they have for their grape varieties and the land the vines grow in. Also the wines are... More

Our first time back to stony brook since 2011, and well worth the return! Nothing but wonderful things to say about this vineyard - wines are wonderful, and very well priced considering their high quality. The woman doing our tasting was very knowledgable and friendly. As this is a boutique winery, they have limited hours compared to other farms (eg... More
