This is how wine tasting should always be done. We sat at an outside table on the balcony on a beautiful sunny day, overlooking the mountains and vineyards for a truely amazing experience. We sampled 5 different types of wines and were given a clear and detailed explanation about where the grapes came from and what to expect with the taste of each wine. We could have easily stayed here all day to explore the grounds and incredible artwork. This was an experience to remember and a highlight of our visit to the Stellenbosch area.

We really enjoyed the vibe of this property and had a great experience doing a quick wine tasting and walk around the grounds. The drive up to the estate was beautiful, and this is definitely a well-run establishment. Our server for the Wine Tasting, Axwin, was very knowledgeable and super friendly! We really enjoyed our time there!

This review is only for the wine tasting. Out of all of the wineries that we went to, this was by far the most extravagant. After our first wine pour, I asked the server a question about the grapes that were grown there. He simply looked at me and said, "If you listened carefully, I said...". First of all, it's sometimes difficult for me to completely understand people from other countries due to accent differences. Secondly, even if he already said the answer to my question, the courteous thing to do would be to repeat the answer. It's quite perplexing to me that with all of the money spent at Delaire Graff Estate, they don't spend time training their staff to be courteous and respectful towards patrons.

I personally wouldn't recommended going to this winery for a wine tasting. It's quite sad to be treated in this manner on my honeymoon.

We have had two memorable evenings here visiting RSA. One of them was my marriage day spend just with the two of us. But the staff have made this into an amazing evening. Can't you believe the art here. I would like to have everything there in my home, remarkably.

Such a beautiful setting, really stunning, we stopped off on our way back from Franschhoek to try their wine tasting. I’d had a fantastic lunch here previously.

Reasonably priced, lovely wine but we really didn’t appreciate the hard sell, not just from our waiter, but by a blonde lady, who I guess is paid on commission. We’d barely started and she was doing the heavy sell. This was our 4th wine tasting of our trip and the first where we got the heavy sell.

Turns out it’s cheaper to buy the rosé in Sweden where my partner lives, about 4 Euros per bottle less. Couldn’t we just enjoy the tasting without the heavy sell?

Very nice waitress but she vanished towards the end of our time there. We asked for the bill from another lady but nothing arrived.

Very slow service, in the end we paid on the way out as we’d got fed up waiting. Tasting at Boschendal much nicer, faster and cheaper.

Too busy, too noisy, won’t hurry back!!
