It is always lovely to visit the wine farms of Franchoek. Rupert and Rothschild is deffinately worth a visit. Fairly understated. The best possible wines. Small menu but Outstanding food. Brian the sommelier has incredible knowledge and could not do enough to make our day incredibly enjoyable. The wines are unique and the wine farm is an absolute must.

Wonderful experience here. The food is full of flavor with excellent wine to match it. 2011 Chardonnay is amazing! The friendly service from Helga is the best!!!

Dear Genevieve & staff. I've been visiting your Winery & restaurant for a few years and are so embarrassed for not writing a review earlier! Your establishment is such an advertisement for South Africa!

My wife and I visited this stunning vineyard on 7th March and we could not have been more impressed. From the beautiful driveway to being greeted as we parked up the whole experience could not have been better. The attention to us as we tasted their wines was outstanding. The setting and ambience was relaxing and we loved the whole... More

The top end wines are really magnificent and will undoubtedly earn some major wine prizes in the not too distant future.

Simply superb. Great setting and lovely staff. Helga was lovely, friendly, knowledgeable and a joy to have as a host. We had the wine of the world tasting with 5 "tapas" style dishes and 5 wines. An extra glass of the Baraoness Nadine 2011, which is drinking so well, rounded off a lovely time. A must if you have the... More

Last year we did a wine tasting at R&R. We noticed that you could do a food and wine pairing so this year I booked for the pairing. We decided to do the 5 course international pairing. The wines are very good, but the own R&R wines are just as good. The food didn't match the quality of the wines.... More

Superb service, food and ambiance. We had the local winepairing menu and had an excellent lunch. The wines went very well with the three small dishes on one plate. Recommended

I am a big fan of Rupert & Rothschild's red blends, so we booked lunch on this elegant estate. Wifi not really working is not a good start. Then we could pick from a local wine pairing or an international package. We picked the international package which included champagne. We didnt think the food was on par with the standard... More

I don;t even know where to start. The stunning vineyard, the elegantly decor of the tasting room, the brilliant service from our sommelier Dale to the exquisite wine. Rupert & Rothschild gets my vote for best wine in South Africa. The wines are out of this world! The moment I thought Baroness Nadine was my favourite we were treated to... More
