Vergelegen Estate Reviews
This is one of the places you have to visit when you are in South Africa. The Dutch started this place close to Somerset West. Some of the trees are more as 400 years old. An excellent place to be. more »
What an excellent way to spend the Sunday morning. Nice food and an absolute treat to see the geese walking for their food. more »
We visited a couple of estate in stellenbosch and franschoek but this was to us the best one. Very authentic! Beautiful gardens, good wines at a good price and very knowledgeable people!!! Thanks
Lucky enough to have private tour around the estate with an excellent guide and tasted some good wines afterwards.
