If anybody asks me “have you been to Rhebokskloof?”, my answer is always the same…”YES! Have you tried their Shiraz?” I was not typically a huge fan of this somewhat ‘spicy’ and peppery wine, but for some strange reason, I fell head over heels for this one and we’ve been coming back for it ever since.

I also discovered their Chenin Blanc. It is the perfect wine for a hot summers day, pairs with amazing friends and fantastic for a picnic. If you prefer your white wine over red, I would definitely give this one a go.


The fact that Rhebokskloof is Kid Friendly and quite frankly, so beautiful, is an added bonus. Lush greens lawn, a jungle gym that should keep the bigger kids happy for mom to at least finish her lunch in peace, and views, it really is no wonder that this Paarl wine estate is a massive hit when it comes to family.

The only down side is that toddlers will probably want to keep up with their older siblings and friends; so mamma dear, I fear you won’t be able to relax too much ;)


But, they don’t only have just a jungle gym. Over the weekends, pony rides & a jumping castle are available for the kids, plus quad bikes and horse riding. For the really big kids (AKA Dad), MTB and hiking Paarl Adventure Trails; all while Mamma enjoys her wine of choice.

Rhebokskloof also do picnics which is actually just the perfect excuse to use the gorgeous green lawn to laze around on. See the menu here (Picnics can be booked 1 day in advance or made to order. Alternatively, they can convert any platter from the menu into a picnic for you - sounds like a win to me!). Or maybe you’re scouting for a wedding venue, or a spot to host a function. Rhebokskloof has it all!


So, if you’re ever stuck on deciding where to go with the kids for a beautiful day out, where the views are gorgeous, the wine is almost perfect and the food is good, remember Rhebokskloof.
