Visited as part of the wine tram tour. A lovely place with super efficient and friendly staff. The wine was excellent and so were the chocolates. Wish we could have spent more time here.

Great experience and amazing views of the mountains. The chocolate and wine was absolutely delicious. I ended up purchasing 4 different bottles of wine. I would recommend this stop to anyone visiting Franschhoek.

Good wines and ok pairing. Make sure to look at your check and see what they are charging. I was overcharged and my change was way wrong. I only hope it was an honest mistake, but tend to think it was a scam.More
