An excellent attraction for the town of Upington. We did a wine tasting and then went back to do an Ice-cream tasting. I would highly recommend it.

Whereas the Orange River Cellars is not highly rated as producing quality wines, the tasting room has good, well-priced tasting options, with snacks. The Straw Wine (Hooiwyn) in Afrikaans is worth buying.

En route to Kanoneiland and we decided to pop in for a quick tasting... nice surprise with a really surprising find in the fruity Colombard. They also had no issues with our puppies occupying the outside area and even supplied cold water.

The ORC staff were very helpful in setting up our wine tasting. Quite knowledgeable about the wine. The white wine is really great from the region and price wise quite cheap. Definitely recommend a stope here if driving through and picking up some wine.
