Thank you Luisa Adonis for an excellent wine tasting. You made our day. Personal with finger tip feeling. This place is something extra. Perfection combined with true love for wine and winemaking. Highly recommended.

Sensational spot and vino - this is one of the great spots in Stellenbosch. Do yourself a favour and go there. If you don't, you'll miss one of the best farms in the area. Just do it.

This is the best tasting room in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek and not only for the wines. Other tasting rooms are going through the motions. R60 for your 5 sips - cold and callous. The Thelema staff said not to worry about the number of tastes...More
