    50th Birthday Party
    We attended a friend's 50th birthday party and then attended the Market Day the next day. Food stalls cater for every palate. Well kept gardens and great views. Great vibe all round

    A whole day destination
    Art lovers dream. They have magnificent sculptures and art on the estate. Gardens are beautiful. Little shops to walk through and a spa as well. I would recommend Millhouse kitchen over the smaller coffee shop, service is much better. Wine tasting is worth it and well presented. Don’t miss the Wedgewood store!

    Vinfari - exceptional!
    This morning we went on the Vinfari at Lourensford and it was an exceptional time! My parents live locally so I’m very used to spending time at Lourensford generally and I know what a beautiful place it is. But this gave all of us a very different sense of the massive farm that it is, and an appreciation for it that I don’t think we would ever have unless we did something like this morning’s adventure. Our hosts Jaco and Ronel were very friendly and Chad who is learning was equally wonderful and knowledgable and I would rate it 11/10 overall if I could. We had a flight of wines and a wonderful platter to end off the experience with. All of the spots we stopped off at for a glass of wine were special and it’s definitely up there in terms of a fabulous experience that is also value for money. I will be back - and I’ll definitely be telling our friends that this is one not to be missed! Keep up the good work and thank you so much for a wonderful day!

    Simply wonderful
    We loved this place. It was just next to our hotel, so its only a ten minutes walk to the main area. The park itself is lovely. I undersjanger that there is a Market on the weekends, but we were here on a wednesday and there was quite a lot to do. There is sculptures all around the Gardens and they are really good. There is also a Gallery showing more art. There’s a wonderful sweet and bisquit shop and a nice clothshop as well. The winery is awsome. Their wine tasting with pairings (several alternatives) is really something you must try.

We enjoyed Everything about our visit - the restaurant under the old oak trees, the gardens, the shops, the art work in the gardens, the wine tasting venue. It is just a pleasure to spend the day in these beautiful surroundings.

Me and my husband came with our son to do a Nought and wine paring. My son was offered the cutest 'kiddies wine tasting'.
Skye with an 'e' ;) was very informative, she definitely thought us a lot! She went out of her way to set up a little area for my son to keep himself busy while we enjoyed the wine tasting.
Will definitely come back soon!

We had visited Lourensford some four years earlier for ordinary tasting. That was such a nice experience.
Now we had booked Vinfari in advance. OK, 650R/person is money - but this experience was worth of every rand!
Jaco and Ronel (sorry, if wrong spelling) were excellent guides on our drive around the farm. Enjoyed great wines, saw nice sceneries and learned so much about wines and other agricultural sections of Lourensford. After the drive (during which we saw also animals) there was informative cellar tour and then tasting with magnificient platters - after that there was no room for afternoon lunch (and just little dinner). Tasting was really generous!
There are also nice shops on the area - and gardens. I bought some high quality coffee.
