The farm is nice and people friendly. I didn't personally like wine BUT it has very low sulphur which my wife likes and does not give her headaches.

Bezalel is one of only two private cellars in the Orange river basin with the most divine assortment of wines one can think of. Wine to the taste of every one. The food and coffe are always great.

yeah, wine was not really great (sorry , our taste, white wine too sweet, re wines too young), their wines are nt really their thing we thought, more brandies. Lunch was light, surroundings quite nice, not many people, light lunch mediocre, service mediocre. You Dutch people , make something more of it!

My wife and I visited and she tasted 3 different drinks. We purchased almost R1300 worth of alcohol yet they still slapped a R30 tasting fee on to yhe account. Im all for paying for tasting, but waver it if more than R1000 is spent!

It was our very first wine tasting. What nice is about the place you taste a variety of wine, brandy, mampoer and liqueur. Also it has a huge grass area where young children can play and a play road where they have put statues of fairty tales. They also have an area with swings. We could enjoy our tasting while... More

The tasting room seemed quite busy, so on arrival we weren't welcomed, but rathered left to ourselves to determine what the cellar had to offer. During our tasting we were left for extended periods of time alone. We were disappointed with this as most other groups had the product explained and the cellar even shown to them. Service only seemed... More

An oasis in the desert. Beautiful venue, expert guide through the various creations on offer. A true education in the pleasure of enjoying the fruit of vine at its best! True passion reflected in every detail. A rarity often sought, seldom found. Thank you for opening your doors to us.
