Extraordinary cuisine. The menue offers very unique dishes showing the art of cooking. Not cheap, small portions, so you have to order 4 to 6 courses minimum. But worth to try it.More

Absolutely beautiful venue with excellent decor and scenery. We had a wine tasting without the food option. The waiter was a bit quick to explain the wine and how to go go about the experience. Nevertheless, I'd surely go back for some 'more' :)

Description
The Valley of the Huguenots is one of the premier wine destinations in the world. It is here that the Maison Estate produces wines that are nature's product, honed with skill, care and respect. Each vine is nurtured, each grape hand selected to give it that personal touch that is always home, always Maison. We make highly individual wines. We drink them with the people closest to us - and we love drinking them at home, where we can really explore the intimate character of each bottle," says Weylandt. "While travelling is my passion, the comforting memory of a meal, of intimate moments shared with good friends over good wine, always draws me home." This is Chris Weylandt's inspiration behind the name Maison - the French word for house. Explore Maison Estate. You won't regret it.
