Customer Reviews

What an amazing experience. Absolutely blown away by the grandeur of the estate. In addition to everything being in an immaculate condition we experienced a homely, genuinely loving and caring atmosphere amongst staff members as we drove from site to site. At every stop, we were treated like royalty making our long day stay unforgettable. The lunch was out of this world, the setting perfect and the wine tasting facing the lawns and beautiful surroundings ... oh my word it was outstanding. Thank you for your hospitality. Thank you for letting us be a part of something special and amazing. This is a tour long to be remembered. Regards, Ansie and Linda Nel (Sisters in Law) - Mrs Ansie & Linda Nel


Had an absolutely unforgettable amazing experience. All staff were wonderful and made us feel very welcomed and special. Gorgeous vineyard and buildings, delicious food and wines and my partner loved the car selection. Thank you for the memorable day xx - Lisa Gustafson


This was the perfect package for us! My husband is not much of a wine drinker but a huge vintage car enthusiast and I’m rather a fan of both! The Motor museum has some of the rarest cars I have ever seen and they are displayed beautifully. Lunch was delicious and the accompanying wine delightful. The restaurant boasts a view of the bottling plant and excellent service. We finished off our tour with a further flight of wine back at the main house and even my wine-hesitant husband liked it enough to buy a bottle! The service was exemplary throughout the day and our tram transfers comfortable with views of the vineyard and surrounding countryside. This was easily one of our favourite trips during our stay in SA! Thank you for taking such good care of us! - Laura Bolton


Great experience! The car museum was awesome and the wine tastings were wonderful. Loads of food at the antipasto lunch and fantastic service all around. Thank you. - Christopher Stearly


This was a great experience. Beautiful, friendly and knowledgeable staff members added to the beauty of the estate. - Darryll Petitt
