You get used to people in this country being really friendly and welcoming so the underwhelming welcome here was a bit strange. We did the wine and chocolate tasting, were given a brief by the staff about what was what and then left to get on with it. Some really interesting taste combinations, as we very much like both ingredients,... More

A visit to this spectacular estate in Somerset West is highly recommended. We did a wine and chocolate tasting @ R65 per head, which was excellent value for money. The wines are varied to cater for every taste and the specially crafted chocolate divine! Fantastic!

Wow! What an estate! This is so beautiful. And the restaurant is really good. We did not try the wine tasting over there but I'm sure it is equally good.
