The Raka brand was named after Piet Dreyer's black fishing vessel. Piet's first love has always been the sea. For some 36 years he braved the storms and challenges of the coast, ever in search of the best catch. It is with this same passion that the Dreyer family now pursue the art of wine making. With the rich blessing of earth and elements, the help of a dedicated workforce, the enthusiasm of winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern gravity flow cellar, Piet Dreyer produces his award-winning Raka wines.

Was very excited to come all the way to Raka for the wine tasting, but unfortunately was very disappointing! The variety of wines available for tasting was very limiting, and the best wines not available at all. So if you want to taste it, you have to buy it. I would gladly pay more and taste all the wines.

Great wines bursting with flavor. Raja wines are quality not quantity driven. Personal favorites are the Spliced and Shiraz. Enjoy!

It's not easy to please guests who arrive at 10h30 for a wine tasting; we'd all finished breakfast only an hour before and were hardly in the mood for alcohol at that time. But Raka is on an isolated hillside with lovely views and we were given a warm welcome, so happily settled down to start our tasting experience. Their... More

Some of my favourite wine in SA. Venue very tranquil. Even though they are situated in an isolated area and it really is just a tasting room, a small restaurant or bistro option would allow travellers to have a quick bite to eat before hitting the road.

We regularly drink Raka wines at home in Switzerland and always love coming to the farm. The scenery is beautiful, the wine tastings are great and everyone is so friendly and welcoming. We usually taste wines that we dont get back home (unfortunately) and this time loved the Rose as well as the Sangiovese. If you want a wine tasting... More

Lovely cellar visit, with friendly staff who invited us to sit on the couch for a tasting, which we combined with cheese and crackers, and fresh bread for sale in the corner of the tasting room. Wines are good value for money. I think this is a gem.

When calling a Market or a happening in Stanford, Raka Wines are always ready to help fill the space. Wonderful people and gold plakes on a few bottles. The Raka Cabernet Frank 2011 my first choice.
