You'll have the pleasure of not only the wines. The views over the lake, the forests, the hills and the delightful company of the devoted vintners and their equally enthusiastic employees. The Hemel-en-Aarde Valley was easily visited in a day-trip from Cape Town, without the...More

Visited the estate for what I believe to be the best Pinot noir in the country. Unfortunately way beyond my price range so was a little disappointed.

The wines themselves are amazing and the scenery is beautiful, however the service you get is very poor. Initially the wines were poured with no explanations as to what they were and with hardly any acknowledgement. Not really worth a visit for a tasting.
