This wine estate is definitely worth a visit (or two!). You could spend an entire day just "chilling" in their beautiful garden. Their food is yummy and reasonably priced and the service excellent. Their "big cats" are a treat for children and grown ups alike. You will love it!

At about 1:30 we placed our orders for lunch - one steak and seven hamburgers of different types. By 2:30, we were still waiting for our food!! After complaining, we were told that the kitchen was...

I visited Vredenheim with my 2 boys (5 & 8) and we had an absolutely fantastic time. We visited the lions and then took in the beauty of the lands and the boys enjoyed the freedom of running and climbing across the lawns. We then went back at 3h which is the feeding times of the lions. It was unexplainably... More

Visited the lion park, only to be able to experience a beautiful wine farm with amazing views, wine tasting, big cat tour and a good choice in restaurants. An unforgettable afternoon spent watching a wedding setup, drinking good wine and eating a fab meal sat outside in the gardens. Highly recommend this place.

Situated just outside central Stellenbosch on the main R310 road you will find the tastefully decorated Vredenheim Wine Estate. We visited this wine farm in February and found the pretty, lush green gardens and pond a joy to walk around. The beautifully maintained gardens have some mountains in the background which provide a lovely view. There is ample on-site parking... More

We visited Vredenheim in March last year to view the gardens and have lunch with my family. The gardens are lovely and really worth a visit, the restaurant is excellent and the Sunday Lunch is a treat.
