Went for a wine tasting for our cousins birthday 1st on the wine tram. Wine steward was rude and very unprofessional and because we were a large group we had to all take the same tasting.... Over priced compared to the other farms. We had to ask for another steward as the 1st one clearly wasn't in the mood to serve us locals. Well I am glad we didn't waste the rest of our time and money rest of the route was superb. Boschendal need to polish their staff. I was told same glass for tasting which I refused. And had to insist I don't drink white and red from same glass. My 1st tasting ended with a lovely glugg of red wine one my dress. To say it was appalling would be an understatement. If you take the wine tram and you are a local skip is our advise and honest review. Or act like a foreigner perhaps you will get 5 glasses laid out and be treated better.
Large wine estate with many trees to have picnics. In summer they have markets on Friday nights as well as picnic days with picnic baskets that can be purchased. Highly recommended for a visit when in the area. Must see winery with beautiful views.
