    Good cellar tour and tasting
    We had a Hyperli voucher for a cellar tour, tasting and bottle of wine. We were a little uncertain as to whether this was good value, but we needn't have worried. The cellar tour was very interesting and our guide was very informative. The wine tasting was well organised and really good quality. It was lovely to sit in the garden for our tasting.
    We are so happy you gotten an great experience of our estate via Hyperli.

    7.5 km Hike above the vineyards.
    Lovely friendly and helpful staff, especially Michaela. Did the 7.5 km hike,harder than expected, took nearly 6 hours with a few stops. The view is breath taking and lots of birds. Well signposted,just quite exposed in summer. Had a decilious Expresso milkshake at Christina's afterwards.

    Jason at Van Loveren tasting room
    After our wonderful experience at the Van Loveren restaurant, Christina’s we were interested in some of the wines the farm had to offer and popped into the wine tasting room and met a fabulous gentleman, Jason. Jason’s knowledge of the family farm history and it’s wines were out of this world. His stories of the farms history and passion for wine is commendable. Jason your passion for your job is admirable. You made our experience a phenomenal one. I really wish the management of the farm recognizes your talent and appreciates you. You costs us a lot of money with the copious amount of wine you sold us. Thanks Jason. Have a lekker day!!!
    Dear Charlene, we are so happy you enjoyed your wine experience with Jason.

    Brilliant visit
    We visited yesterday and had a fantastic experience. Our Ambassador was Frida who was brilliant and very knowledgeable. She looked after us from start to finish. My wife had a 6 glass tasting with bread, olive oil balsamic, olives and dukkha. I had a classic 4 glass tasting. We also had a glass of MCC each and bought a bottle of Rose. The value was outstanding
    Grant, thank you for visiting our estate. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed Freda. We hope to welcome you back soon

    Master wines tasting...
    Van Loveren winery is a special place to visit at any time. We pre-booked knowing that there was a large group of wine walkers heading there that morning and chose the Masters wines tasting. Excellent experience, very knowledgable member of staff who conducted her brief with humour and made the experience even more entertaining. Fabulous selection of wines, the experience was never rushed as we sat outside in the garden(the garden is worth a tour around), and once again we enjoyed this our second visit, the first being in 2018. Fine shop, bubbly stoppers, a favourite wine and the Rhino cream liquor. We will return...

This is a scam operation. They will take your money and then not deliver wine. They do not respond when questioned about nondelivery. I would not order wine from them.

What a wonderful experience! We are visiting my partners parents (who are from SA) and went for the food and wine pairings. Frida (our server) was amazing and so knowledgeable about the wines. She even looked up where we can find them in Boston! Loved every minute of this!

The restaurant is beautiful. The wine pairing was exactly what I was looking forward to. We had the Van Loveren wine and cheese pairing & Undiscovered Gems pairing. The service was not great. The staff was busy cleaning the restaurant and it felt they were suppose to do that before the restaurant had opened
