This was the families first trip to South Africa. We landed in Cape Town but drove to Franschhoek for our 2 day stay at the vineyard. On arrival at the Owner's Cottage I couldn't have been happier. The cottage is beautiful. The rooms are what I always want in a hotel but am often let down. The conservatory where we... More

We visited here as part of our Wine Tram experience and started at Rickety Bridge before stopping here for our next tasting. I was a little disappointed with the seemingly less organised staffing when we arrived, after experiencing such a slick operation at Rickety Bridge they need to pull their socks up a bit here. Enjoyed the tasting but had... More

We arranged a wine tasting for 16 people - we arrived to a beautifully laid table, tasters poured, with nibbles to pair the wine well arranged. The wines were well explained, the host Geraldine was friendly and well informed, and the surroundings were just sublime. Absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful way to end a day in the winelands....

We visited for lunch following a stop off on the wine tram. This was a very good choice. Excellent food and service in a wonderful location. The wine isn't bad either!!

Such a beautiful wine Estate and surrounding , really worth going to. Wine tasting was fantastic with great range of tastings from R25 upwards and not to bad buying a few for the road home. I could spend a good day just sitting under the tree taking in the amazing atmosphere. A must visit

Visited the estate as part of the wine tram tour - and the serene surroundings made it my favourite estate. We had pre-booked the picnic basket for lunch and it did not disappoint. French bread, salami, cheese, crisps, a bottle of wine and water and brownies coupled with the perfect spot underneath a large tree in the garden with both... More

We arrived at Grande Provence not knowing anyone about it nor what to expect. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We proceeded to do some wine tasting. The wines were awesome and we bought a couple of cases which they will deliver for free to PE for us. Because we bought wine, they made the tasting complimentary. We then... More

The architecture, gardens and gallery are amazing, and we had very high expectations. We've eaten extremely well in South Africa, and by all measures this would be another spectacular meal. It was good but the kingklip, a fish I normally find extraordinary, was tough. I cannot understand why and inquired as to whether it had been frozen (no) but it... More

Visited the wine tasting section of this winery on a recent visit with friends. The wine tasting experience was exceptionally lack-lustre and totally underwhelmed compared to all our other experiences in the Stellenbosch / Franschoek Region. No explanation was given of the wine form / how to order etc and in the end we didnt even get a description of... More

My husband and I had an amazing lunch here. I got the vegetarian option for starter and mains and they were out of this world. I really loved the surrounding which are so magnificent. Overall it was a fantastic lunch experience which I would highly recommend to anyone who loves the real French style.
