The urban sprawl of Stellenbosch comes to an abrupt halt, in its south-western suburb of Onderpapegaai, when you enter the gates of Middelvlei. Suddenly, before you lies a beautiful vineyard-strewn amphitheatre overlooking the Bottelary Hills and the upper reaches of Devon Valley. This is the home of the Momberg family, who have been wine farmers since 1919.Join in the Boerebraai fun at Middelvlei where our resident braai expert will prepare your chops, boerewors and chicken sosaties to perfection. As if the appetising aromas of roosterkoek and braaibroodjies are not enough, Ben's homemade pâté and Ouma Annie's pumpkin fritters have placed the Middelvlei Braai in a league of its own.

I did not stay in the hotel area, but we had a lovely lunch here, all cooked on the BBQ and it was divine.We then had a tasting of wines straight from the barrel which was awesome. The wines and...

My partner and I went on an impromptu day trip to Stellenbosch on a rainy day in September 2016. We stopped at the Stellenbosch Tourist Center and chanced upon Middelvlei in a pamphlet. It was the only restaurant listed to serve Boerebraai, a South African cuisine we had yet to sample, and we jumped on the chance. We called ahead... More

Our group enjoyed a delicious lunch in the sun on this beautiful premises. We liked the Pinotage Merlot best, from all the wines we have tasted there. The dachshund was cute and constantly looking for visitor attention. There were other farm animals and also quite some tortoises.

What an incredibly fabulous experience. I have often wished that someone would set up a braai restaurant in a beautiful setting so one can sit back and relax whilst others do all the work and voila I find this spot when trawling the Internet for ideas. Every morsel was lip smacking from start to finish and I would highly recommend... More

From the lovely farm setting, to the warm welcome, the big, friendly dogs to the absolutely delicious food - it was an unforgettable experience. Will recommend it to anyone who would love to have experience authentic South African welcome.

This is my wife's favourite wine farm for some very good reasons. The wine is excellent, the service is always good and the staff very welcoming. They also don't skimp on the tastings. It's hidden away and makes for a great afternoon lazing around with friends and some farm food. Worth a visit (or many).

This wineries tasting room is in the old stable, which has been done up very nicely to be different from most other wine farm visits you will do. This wine estate has much to offer with regards the varietals on offer. There Shiraz and Pinotage is one of the best in Stellenbosch. They also do a Chardonnay, Cabernet and a... More

At first it seems unimpressive, but one needs to understand that this is not the typical Cape Dutch wine estate that is typical to the region. This is more a traditional Afrikaans "Boere" setting with traditional Afrikaner cuisine. Hence the title of this review... We came for the Boere Tapas wine tasting and the Kids wine tasting. The Kids Wine... More
