Had a painful experience here as a person of color and I'm flagging it to anyone of color visiting to avoid it for the sake of self care. Also recently heard of another person of color who was arrested on a case of mistaken identity at the insistence of the manager there. Appalling

Absolutely vile and disgusting place. Wrongfully accused my friend of theft, detained her with zero evidence. Then proceed to humiliate her by calling the police and putting her through a traumatic experience only because she is a BLACK FEMALE living in SOUTH AFRICA. Because in the Western Cape, all BLACK people look the same. Even after realizing your error, you... More

On our way to Franschhoek we stopped at Solms Delta, particularly to see the Museum on the local history. Here there was an indepth description on man and the tools used with lots of artefacts found on archaeological digs in the area. A history of the start of the farm and the various families (who would have been slaves )... More

We arrived late in the afternoon to visit the History Museum and found it eventually, the signs weren't very clear but that was part of the charm. The museum was very well presented particularly in relating the story of the estate to the nation. It inspired us to look further into several aspects of SA's history when we returned to... More

A nice idea with the workers enjoying a share of the profits and reinvestment. Even though this is an old estate the concept for the future is encouraf=ging but there still lacks some attention to details and refinments.

This estate is very impressive when you enter and has been extensively developed and the lady presenting the wines was very good at explaining each variety before pouring it. Having said that, I felt the estate was more impressive than the wines themselves and as such I wouldn't rush to buy any of those I tasted if I saw them... More

Beautiful wine farm just outside Franshoek. Taste outside under the trees and there is a great deli with well priced goodies and yummies. Go down with the tractor to the delta and have a picnic on the lawns under the trees. One can walk around or ride bikes. Great place to take some friends that is well priced for the... More

I was so excited for the wine tasting but my group went to experience the museum first, and I'm glad we did. This museum tour was one of the most rewarding parts of my time in Cape Town. Not only did our tour guide, Mercia, deliver the chilling horrors of what occurred on this land but she also gave us... More

Our last stop of the day on the purple tour of the wine tram. Didn't get a great welcome but assumed that was because it was the end of a long hot day for the staff plus we were the only ones to disembark. The wine was good though the tasting a bit rushed but it didn't matter too much... More
