I have never been to a place more special than this. The staff we're brilliant & the wine tasting equally brilliant. If you're ever in the area. Don't fail to come

We went for the wine tasting. The sparklings were really good. Esp the blanc the blanc.And very affordable. Only ZAR165/bottle for sparkling that is so good. You have magnificent views of the mountains while sipping your sparklings.

Such a stunning location over-looking the beautiful Frranschoek and a lovely variety of delicious wines. We went for a five tasting combo and the two bubbles, white, red and port were all exquisite. Highly recommend for fans of Pinot noir!
