Thoroughly enjoyed our wine tasting this afternoon. Three MCC's to choose from (which I love) and delicious red wines. They also offer Turkish delight pairing or chocolate pairing, which we didn't have, as we had just eaten, but I will try next time.

We have had several great breakfasts here, however on a public holiday today the service was terrible and a dead fly in the salad. Enough to put us off for life😖. Our experience has been they pack the tables in and the staff just can't keep up over weekend lunches!

A country market in a very beautiful wine farm, with all kinds of fresh produce and fresh food, it has a great vibe for sitting down with a family and enjoy a lovely meal and great wine

This is our favourite wine estates in the Helderberg, with it's beautiful gardens, lovely restaurant, good wine, great coffee shop and festive market on Sundays and every 2nd Friday evening in summer. It is just always the perfect outing, especially with little ones as there is so much space for them to explore.

The white wines at Lourensford is divine! We also had a coffee at the coffee shop where you can buy freshly roasted coffee beans. The gardens are also very beautiful.
