Of all the wineries we visited in the Cape this was undoubtedly the best. Very knowledgeable and engaging staff and wines of the highest quality. If white suits your palate go for the Rustenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2011. If red is your tipple, John Merriman (Cab Sauv) will satisfy – that said, my wholehearted recommendation would be the push the boat... More

Great tasting in a beautiful estate. Some really interesting wines including a white Rousanne that we all loved. The desert wine was wonderful, perhaps the loveliest after dinner drink I've tasted. Beautiful grounds to walk around as well

Wine tasting comes as a new experience to me, despite my liking of wine and despite having lived in several wine producing areas on several continents. - The introduction to proper wine tasting took finally place at Rustenberg and it was an experience, with wine of splendid quality and a very knowledgeable and friendly member of their staff.

We initially came here to tour the gardens which were a taste of England in the Cape. The surroundings are quintessential SW Cape yet the Schoongezicht and main Rustenburg gardens have some of the character of an English country manor, complete with cream tea and scones. October catches many of the flowers at their best and the air was laden... More

Rustenberg is probably our favourite winery in Stellenbosch. The situation is picture perfect, in a lush and fertile valley and the gardens are fabulous. Don't leave without having a stroll after your wine tasting. The wines are top quality, whites and reds, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Especially in such a hot summer as this, Rustenberg is... More

Lovely spot for tasting Rustenberg's outstanding wines. Knowledgeable friendly tasting room staff. Go for a walk in the lovely gardens at the foot of Simonsberg.

This is one of my favourite wine farms. The wine tasting room is superbly designed, with quality glassware and well trained staff. Set on a historic farm with beautiful gardens and a rich history. Well worth it. Ideal for those who love fine wines.
