Beautiful as always, an estate in perfect condition, so well looked after. The Stables Restaurant always good. Happy, friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, good food although they could change the menu. It has been the same for years.

I like everything about Vergelegen Estate: food, nice flowers, landscape and of couse vine. It might be even better if it has hotel to have a night after vine tasting.
