Overview
More
The Raka brand was named after Piet Dreyer's black fishing vessel. Piet's first love has always been the sea. For some 36 years he braved the storms and challenges of the coast, ever in search of the best catch. It is with this same passion that the Dreyer family now pursue the art of wine making. With the rich blessing of earth and elements, the help of a dedicated workforce, the enthusiasm of winemaker Josef Dreyer and the advantages of a modern gravity flow cellar, Piet Dreyer produces his award-winning Raka wines.

What a lovely wine tasting setting. The shop is too beautiful. The wines are great. Only pity was that it was very busy and only one lone soul to try service all the tables.

The wine tasting is good and they have cheeses for picnics if that takes your fancy. We took a box of pinotage. Great wines!

Not a connoisseur but humbly put - Wine speaking of consistency. Culture. Family values and a story to tell. Quality. Definitely recommended.

Raka wines are well known and loved. A visit to their winery is worth the detour. The lady who attended to us was very friendly and knowledgeable. Their is a standard tasting menu but one can also taste their more prestigious range. Excellent wines.
