No visit to the KZN Midlands would ever be complete without a visit to Abingdon. They are winemaking pioneers in this part of the world and the quality of their product speaks for itself. This is very much a family run operation and the owners...More

Where to start....The wine...Definitely the wine. Thank God I was not the driver because I wouldn't have enjoyed the wine as I did on that trip. Abingdon Wine Estate is a real gem and a hidden treasure in Kwazulu Natal. The scenery, the food, venue...everything...More

Visited Abingdon for lunch and wine tasting for my father-in-laws birthday. Service was excellent. Food was fresh and tasty - however you do not get enough food for the price you pay . We all were still a little hungry. Not particularly value for money.

Beautiful wine farm in the Midlands area. Something unexpected and unique tasting wines. The owner and winemaker tells you about the wine as you are tasting and we had a lovely cheeseboard to accompany the wines. Tastings are charged R15 per glass but the serving...More
