Owner description: Nestled between majestic mountains and overlooking the vineyards of Stellenbosch, Delaire Graff Estate is South Africa's most desirable art, hospitality and wine destination. A magnificent Cape Winelands property, it boasts two outstanding restaurants, a state-of-the-art winery, exclusive lodges, a destination spa and luxury boutiques. Striking Cape Dutch architecture meets African artefacts and styling, with original artworks from Laurence Graff's personal collection on display throughout, representing some of South Africa's finest contemporary artists.

We had heard good reports about Delaire wine and on our last day in South Africa decided we would visit the estate and hopefully buy a couple of cases of wine for export back to the UK. My wife and I arrived about 11am and having driven there from Cape Town was dying for a cup of coffee before the wine tasting. First impressions were good we went to the wine tasting area and said we wanted a coffee before reviewing the wines and they sent us to the restaurant area. We asked for a couple of coffees but were met with a response that we could only have coffee if we had lunch! What at 11am in the morning! I could have asked to see the manager but do you know life’s too short, we left. So instead of allowing us to purchase a couple of coffees for about 50 rand without lunch they passed by an opportunity of probably a sale of maybe 2000 rand. I suppose they don’t need our money. We went elsewhere to another vineyard enjoyed their coffee and wine and made a purchase to enjoy when we arrive home.

This was the best experience for wine tasting we had during our trip to South Africa.
The place is beautiful with stunning views. The waiter was very friendly and gave us a real good explanation on the wines we were tasting. We ordered some delicious finger food to nibble on and felt in paradise.
We could have stayed for ever

This doesn't need a review, just go! Glorious vistas and lovely wine. Indifferent service at the Wine Lounge but that was the only blip in a very memorable evening. We didn't have time for the proper wine tour so did a little 15-min ride around the estate in a golf cart with the lovely Terence who quickly talked us through things.

Whilst presenting itself well in terms of location and facilities, there is an air of arrogance and indifference shown to customers that is distasteful and reminiscent of superiority attitudes of yesteryear. Some may feel comfortable or find this appealing, but I for one do not.

One of THE wine estates in South African Winelands. It’s like the most High Class you can get. The estate looks simply beautiful and sophisticated. You notice that it is rather artificial but it really gets the point of beauty. Of course very good service and just amazing wines! Also the snack platters are pretty enjoyable.
