Beautiful wine estate and I know some of the wines. We especially bought some of our German friends here because it was one of the wine estates that stays open the latest. To our great disappointment we arrived at 17h20 (the website indicates that they close at 6pm) just to be told that "they don't have enough wine glasses for... More

We arrived to taste some wine We arrived trough the restaurant, and they sent us to the wine tasting area We sat for 20 minutes, waiters saw us several times but preferred to stay behind they desk and laugh together.. I tried them to come to our table, but I suppose their internal jokes were much better than taking care... More

We had heard a lot about Kleine Zalze and how luxurious it is. Well that is possibly applicable to the lodgings and the restaurant, but not so much to the place where one can do the wine tastings. Not that this in the end really matters, as the wines are really good. We especially like the Chenin Blanc Old Bush... More

Good place for a tasting of some very nice wines. Tasting fee is waived if you buy any wine. Really nice setting, also a very good cheese tasting to go with it, if you want.

What a beautiful cellar and great tasting experience. The staff were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about their superb wines, which made it very difficult to decide which to take home. Its also nice to enjoy a bottle with a cheese platter after your tasting, especially outside on a sunny day.

Maylene was absolutely wonderful! She really shows a great passion for what she does, told us all about the wine, the region and made sure we had enough crackers. We did not feel rushed at any point and easily sat under the most magnificent trees soaking up the sunshine, sipping on magnificent wine. A few young staff members sat next... More

Was very disappointed in the surrounds / I was expecting this to be the highlight of the tour but it didn't come close - however the assistant was extremely knowledgable & gave us great information. Cheese platter was a bit of a rip off -

Great MCC's with staff who were friendly knowledgeable and passionate. Had some great wines with crackers to calm the palate. Highly recommended because you can choose your wines and the fee is waived if you buy. The Old Bush Vine Chenin was great!! Also got some Shiraz and Cab Sav... The Cab Sav barrel flavour was great.

During a recent vacation to the Stellenbosch, we had a wonderful stop here for wine tasting. It was a beautiful day--we enjoyed the outdoor seating, the delicious wines, the gorgeous scenery, and the great service. The highlight of our visit was getting to work with Wayne the sommelier. He was extremely knowledgeable, a wonderful storyteller--sharing the background of each of... More

The setting is gorgeous but we found the food to be quite overpriced for what it was. The portions were small and, while the food was tasty we felts that over R400.00 for a meal for two was overpriced when considering that one of us only had a starter, the other had fish and we had no alcohol or dessert....
