Lovely place with nice wine. Don't go if you in a rush since it located in a very relaxed environment. The more time you spend the better the experience becomes. Cheese platter were lovely too. Tasting hosted by winemaker himself.

This was a "we have to stop somewhere near George but where?" kind of place. It turned into a must-not-miss recommendation and a 12-bottle wine purchase. A wine-tasting was followed by the shared cheese platter lunch - which was worth the visit all by itself....More

Small winery when compared to the established wine estates surrounding Cape Town and Stellenboch. Nice restaurant where one can have lunch and order a cheese board. Wine tasting for R30 per person. The owner and winemaker pours the wine.

Tasting is very inexpensive. Restaurant with a nice menu at a good price. Not a big place so there isn’t too much to do.

Hi thanks for asking! We do a small cellar tour and tasting of seven wines. It takes about 40 minutes. There is a R20 tasting fee that is waived if any of our wines are bought. Wine regards Nico
