About the garden

Vergelegen means "situated far away", and it's not hard to see why. With views of surrounding mountains and a certain amount of charm, it feels as if one has stepped back in time to admire the quiet, beautiful gardens and typical cape dutch architecture. So much so, that Vergelegen has been nominated as a serial World Heritage Site and reflects an authentic depiction of Cape Cultural Heritage.

The age-old Vergelegen gardens have been restored to reflect the best of its history and highlight the contrast between the simple and the bold. You'll find informal spaces with grasses and woodlands and other formally laid out gardens. Vergelegen’s diverse, internationally-acclaimed gardens span 10 hectares- walkthrough the yellowwoods and visit these 18 intimate gardens including a rose garden, a vegetable garden and a wetland garden. You can also find some amazing historic trees, some which date back to the 1700s.

I've done a Vergelegen wine tasting before, but today was my first visit to the Stables Restaurant. We really enjoyed it. It is very kiddie friendly with an amazing play park and a warm atmosphere. The kids went to play outside while we enjoyed some excellent wine and food. Our waiter was also very friendly and professional. What a great all-round experience... we'll definitely be back to experience it in summer.

Gorgeous gardens with meandering paths. R10 entry for an adult, but totally worth it. Forestry feels, flower feels, perfect for any photo opportunity as its family friendly, just no animals unfortunately. Stables Restaurant is decently priced and a lovely precursor to a long walk. I recommend sunscreen and a hat with comfy, open shoes.

We hosted my daughter's baby shower picnic in the Camphor Forest. The reception and preparation that Vergelegen welcomed us with, was exceptional and commendable. From when we arrived we only received the best service from Stephanie, the manageress and Tyler, the waiter. So was everything we experienced and enjoyed there. The picnic food was gourmet, the service impeccable, the setting magical! I cannot recommend this highly enough. Thank you Vegelegen and staff, for making this event extraordinary and a day to remember!

One of the most beautiful wine estate I have been for a very long time. I try new wine farms almost every weekend but Vergelegen is something out of this world. They have a huge aesthetically pleasing and relaxing gardens. Just taking a walk in their garden and among those huge beautiful trees and flowers is amazing. Not only a wine farm but a botanical experience at the same time. Burst of flavor cheese board, beautiful wines and a nice area for kids to keep them busy while mommy and daddy enjoy some of the beautiful wine while immersed in the beautiful surroundings. Put this wine estate first on your list of wine farms to visit. My next visit will be to their restaurant.

The Vergelegen Wine Estate is probably the most attractive estate of its kind in South Africa. It's got everything. Beautiful grounds, well tended gardens, a great natural setup, wine tasting, several restaurants, history, historical buildings. All these are well taken care of and easily accessible. I would suggest that you come and spend the day and, if a picnic is something that you might consider doing, you can get one catered on the beautiful grounds of the estate.
