Review of Middelvlei

Attraction details
Owner description: The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

“Lovely Family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

We had a interesting talk about their family as the estate is one of the only ones run as a family concern and we enjoyed that.

“Great for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

What a beautiful place! The kids played with all the farm animals ( tortoises,goats,dogs,pigs and cows) while we sat outside and had a Devine wine and cheese tasting. Great wine and lovely cheese!
One of our favorite wineries as much for the views and atmosphere as the wonderful wine itself.

“FANTASTIC FOR KIDS AND ADULTS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2011

Highly recommend this wine tasting vineyard with a little farmyard which is great for little kids 1 - 12. The small farmyard has so many animals that are so well looked after and tame that you could even touch the geese without them biting you. My son 7 and daughter 2 picked up the little gossling and the mother did not mind as the animals were hand reared by the owners. They had little goats which may have been pygmy goats and I was amazed that even the tortises had baby tortises which require ideal living condition for them to breed but this little farmyard had it all. Even 4 wallabys that were rather shy but had plenty of places to hide. We met the owner and his son and they are very friendly family. Highly recommend for children and they have BBQs which is open to the public. We tried to stay in one of their cottages but they were booked up so we stayed at a hotel in Devon Valley but next time we visit South Africa we will book a cottage as our kids had a fantastic time and so did we wine tasting.

“Amazing wine - amazing horse ride to there!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2009

Hi!

Went horse-riding from Devon Valley onto Asara and Middelvlei wine estates. Both the horses and wine was great, and a very exciting trip! Wine tasting in a new, different way! Totally worth it!
