All I can say is WOW. What an amazing experience. We arrived at the cellars at 10.30am on New Years Eve.... so no judging please... We were offered a couple of options for wine tasting.... we settled on one and were blown away by the knowledge gained and the fabulous wines. The staff were amazing and even after the doors closed at 12pm so they could go and celebrate the new year with their families, they kept on entertaining us until we had decided on what wines were our new favorites. Such an amazing experience. Thank you Soraya and team!

What a wine taste experience. Nice drive from cape town, short and sweet. Cellar is just on other side of wellington. When you walk in, you feel comfortable and at home. Xenia, our hostess and pourer, made this very special. Vibrant, energetic, funny... really a perfect person to make you feel comfortable. Very knowledgable about wines and the marketing side of it. Told us interesting stories ( if you want to know why all wines in south africa come from wellington or where the afrikaans expression for bunking school come from, ask her). To come back to the wines, very good value for money.

Pinotage on Tap yesterday at Dimersfontein was awesome as always. Even the weather this time round played along. The music was better than in previous years and so was the food. Even though the sandwich to start off with was a little dry and the dessert nothing special, it did not influence the enjoyment of the day!
Great wine - will definately be back.

Nice wines at reasonable prices well worth a visit. Jams and olive products also on sale. Staff are friendly and good knowledge of surrounding attractions.

The view from the cellar is very nice and their wines are of medium standard. You can only taste wine there as they do not have a restaurant or bistro. In winter they may have a fire going if it is cold. It is a pity that when looking towards the mountains the cellars roofs are so prominent down below.
