“Cool spot for sundowners”

Attraction details
Owner description: The exclusive winery of Peter Falke is nestled against the majestic slopes of the Helderberg mountains in the heart of the Stellenbosch winelands, South Africa. Groenvlei Farm is home to rambling magenta bougainvillea, delicate scented roses and wild lavender growing alongside carefully cultivated vineyards. Dating back to the 18th century, the traditional gabled Cape Dutch buildings of the wine estate belie a contrasting modernity within. The stately old homestead is partnered by a "boutique" winery, contemporary wine tasting room and luxurious outdoor lounge which have established Peter Falke Wines as the most elegant and serene sundowner retreat in the winelands. Owner Peter Falke and his better half, Daniele Gortz, invite you to enjoy the exceptional wines that reflect their lifestyle, cultures and personalities.

“Cool spot for sundowners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2011

Very modern, which can be refreshing given that we are in the heart of traditional Cape Dutch architecture.

There is a fabulous fun seating area outside where you can lounge on big colourful cushions - it's a bit 60's - very groovy!

This is a fun place for a tasting, great views of the mountains and chilling with a glass of wine, watching the sun go down.

“Beautiful Scenery - lovely wine :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2011

i went to south africa in january 2011, we took many tours of vineyards and winery's.
Peter Falke is one of the ones we visitied as suggested by my aunty and uncle who live out there 8 months of year! and are big wine fans!- the scenery is beautiful around the estate, it is one of the more modern estates which i loved but it was combined with an old building, the furniture was great comfty and fun!
the pink flowers which surrond the white building screamed at you they were just gorgeous i have lots of phots of the estate - unfortunately not on my computer yet! :(
the wine! i throughly enjoyed i even brought a bottke home with me :)
they are very light wines and easy to drink having a mixture of rose white and red, the rose is suprisingly one of the nicest i have tasted and really makes tyou aware of just how nice Rose wine can be!
oh n wine tasting glasses they were fab, they have a peice inside the glass which when swirling the wine allows the air to enter the wine for a better taste, only place i've seen these so both me and my parents bought some glasses too! and they made the journey home!
when i go back to south africa i will be most definatley makign a visit to this vineyard again. worth a visit for sure.

this winery is beautiful. it has lovely, comfortable seating with views of the vineyards and mountains. i think it is also open later than most of the other wineries in the region. the cabernets are also good value.
