Overview
More
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.

After a half day winetasting we used a nice boerebraai as lunch with beautiful wines and the new born Rooster of Middelvlei wines.

Went to Middelvlei with a couple of friends for my birthday one Saturday. This was a great spot. Well done to all of you for the amazing boere braai and wine tasting combination. We will certainly be back soon. Keep up the good work.
