Visitor rating: Excellent

“We were impressed by the hospitality, scenery and quality of the wines. I especially remember the Chardonnay as one of the best I’ve ever tasted. The setting was beautiful, with the charm of a family owned vineyard.”

“ ‘Gem’ wine estate in the Garden Route. We love wine and work in the wine industry… all 3 were top class. This is a excellent find!”

“Tasty full flavoured sav blanc, chardonnay and they let us taste their unreleased unriddled brut rose, i highly recommend everyone to come here, look out for their pinot noir.”
