Set against a mountain backdrop, Viljoensdrift offers not only the usual wine tasting experience, but also boat rides and gourmet riverside picnics. The farm has been home to five generations of the Viljoens family, whose French Huguenot ancestors first planted vines here in 1818. Today, the estate produces award-winning wines and provides boat tours on the Breede River.

A must visit if you are travelling through Robertson. We popped in for a quick visit and ended up staying for nearly an hour. You can take a picnic basket with items (ciabbata, olive spread, cheese, cold meats, etc) selected from the deli on the river cruise, taste wine or just enjoy a drink and/or snacks at the tables provided.
Absolutely love this beautiful venue. Great people too. I have been here for a wedding and the Wacky Wine weekend. The boat trip was quaint. The place truely picture perfect. I will be back for sure and recommend it unreservedly. My photos don't do it justice.
