Great time . Wine tasting ,farm history, music history all in one place. Excellent service. We can learn about the slavery by visiting the museum. The farm was established in 1860 and is fascinating to see that today it has become a place in which the diverse culture of local people is preserved. A proof of that is the museum... More

Wine tasting: White wine in two instances was lukewarm. Staff seemed distracted and we waited too long between each tasting. Waited over 90 minutes for picnic. Staff appeared muddled and confused as to what food needed to go where, so we ended up with too little food for our group. The same woman who was packing the picnic was also... More

We were met with this vineyard's historian, Marsha who provided a very informative history of the vineyard going back more than 4 centuries with its different owners and the laborers (slaves) that worked there over the past multi-centuries. Marsha was also talented singer as she demonstrated the songs, dances and culture of the local people laboring this vineyard. It really... More

We decided to have lunch in Solms-Delta because it is recommended as one of the most interesting farm and vineyards in the area. The food is simply delicious and so is the staff, very kind and professional.

I visited the above resort for wine tasting this morning. This is part of my hobby when I visit Cape Town. Some of the wines I tasted was Chenin blanc, rose, Shiraz, cape jazz Shiraz which I found to be the smoothest and I also tasted Astor pear cider. Wines are fairly cheap to purchase. Unfortunately I cannot say much... More

Arrived in heavy rains. Had to hunt for a dry parking. Main restaurant closed due to not patrons. It seemed that we ate in the kitchen. Only 4 tables. Food was very good and service average. Staff need training. Wine very average. Will give it 6 out of 10 as food was very good. Don't think will go back.

We were shown around the fascinating museum by someone who works on the farm. The history of the farm and the presence of slaves in the 19th century on this farm are documented with very interesting panels. The present owner providing diverse benefits for the employees including music and good educations.

I know the brand but had not tasted too many of their wines. We opted for the wider tasting of all 10 wines. Good value option but also very interesting. From dry to sweet, red and white, to the pear cider - you will find something you like. My favourite: Jazz Shiraz! Lots of people were ordering the picnic baskets... More
