The cheese made by the lady who served us was delicious and the hot bread was the perfect accompaniment for the cheese platter. Lovely setting for a big group to share the platters whilst wine tasting.

Packwood is a fine example of how wineries in the Western Cape used to be before commercialisation set in. Beautiful views and rustic venue. Ashley did a brilliant job of telling us all about the wines and the tasting was a great success. The cheese lunch was very tasty with ample servings of cheese made on the farm. Lovely bread...

Hello, thank you for the review, I am glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to Packwood.

Worth the visit, with a stunning view. Very nice wines and friendly staff. We had a delicious cheese platter and salad. But didn't stay for the night. The pinot noir is very good and award winning. They also have nice white wines and rosé. Go there!

Packwood is a family and owner run farm and wine estate. Every cheese, salad and wine is made on the farm. The platters are delicious and home made, the wine tasting is personal, interactive and informative. Ashley is quirky and knows their wine inside and out. An epic wine tasting experience all round... and you cant beat the view! Go...

Popped in to do some wine tasting and loved the personal touch of the owner giving us the wines to taste and telling us their story. Stunning place and we enjoyed sharing a cheese platter and a bottle of wine. Delicious and yummy and a wonderful outing. Thank you.

We arrived at the wine farm. Spectacular drive to the farm, had high hopes. Arrived at the farm, felt very unwelcome. The lady told us that there are 5 people busy with tasting and that we had to come to the restaurant to taste. She told us she does not know anything about the wine, but can ask her if...

Hi there, what an awful experience you had I am sincerely sorry, we have been very busy this week and short staffed, I think you can see very well from our other reviews that your experience is not the norm. If you are still in the area next week please come along for a complementary tasting,

We stopped here for a tasting session and lunch on a wine tour of the area. The farm is a working dairy farm and in a quiet beautiful location. Having visited two other estates this was by far the best. The owner herself went through the wines with us (other estates let their staff do it). She was so knowledgable...

Ashley was a great host and extremely knowledgable about both his own wines and the industry in SA. Then for lunch which was an extremely generous home made cheese platter, salad and ciabatta.

Hi Claire I noticed my first response was not submitted so apologies for the delay in noticing this, it was a fantastic party and one of many more to come. Packwood is great for the smaller get togethers and intimate functions and we were glad everything went well, thank you for choosing us for your 40th.

So I'm calling it... Packwood had the best wines at the festival! I really loved their 2013 Sauvignon Blanc and the wooded Pinot Noir Rose! I hope to be returning to he area soon so I can stay at the estate!
