About the garden

The planting can be described as English, with roses, foxgloves, salvias, agapanthus, sedum, anemones, day lilies and much more – really a plants lover’s dream. The changing of the seasons bring interesting and beautiful changes – there is always something to catch the eye. The ‘borrowed’ surrounding landscape of vineyards, green pastures and the majestic Simonsberg mountain backdrop make this garden a magical place.

Delicious, affordable wine tasting experience! On your way there it really feels like you’re escaping the busy town and driving into an old, preserved and calm country! Quiet, quaint and quite enjoyable! Worth checking out.

This is a gorgeous rustic farm where the wines are fabulous and the pace is slow. While booking is recommended, you can just pitch up. Prepare for a generous and un rushed tasting at a well appointed venue set next to a shady lawn surrounded by Cape Dutch farm buildings.

Beautiful vineyards located on a large estate in a rural part of Stellenbosch...the drive through the estate is certainly stunning...we arrived around 3pm so it was close to closing and the guys were certainly in a rush to get things rapped up by 4pm...the wines are excellent... The views from the tasting area are great... The gardens especially are really beautiful although we did'nt fully get to experience it with our late arrival but would like to go back at another stage to appreciate the tranquility of the place...there are no bestros or restaurants or shops... Its just wine tasting and buying...the other activity would be to stroll through the manor gardens which are the main attraction... I could imagine a deli located in these gardens with kids and adults picnicking on the lawns and strolling through the beautiful farm lands with fur baby's...

We had the most amazing tasting experience - planned multiple stops along the wine route however, got stuck at Rustenberg. Clayton was such a lovely host, and gave us such a personal experience that we stayed for a prolonged period and bought so much more wine than we originally intended. Would highly recommend for tasting, especially on a chilly, rainy day.

Farm is a little bit rustic, but wonderful experience all and all. The wine advisor was well trained and just added to the experience
