Great setting great potential, 4 wine, a sauvignon blanc with grapes from bonnievale, a unwooded chardonnay, a shiraz and merlot. The merlot was great, the rest average, the service super lame. I practically had to do my own tasting, no wonder i where the only one there. A 7 but not for the wine but for the setting!!
Great location, great decor. Pity it ended there. R20 for a tasting, no problem there, but the wines were so warm it was like coffee. Really left a sour taste.
We were served by a gentlemen called donovan who did nothing but just pour wine and leave. We kinda felt unwanted. Not even a welcome or a smile or just a bit of info about the wine. Such a pity especially for a farm with this much potential with such a cozy feel about it.
Wines were a much better than the hosts but not good enough to overshadow the wonderfull hospitality
So awesome we will not go back there again
I spent the afternoon at Klein Genot’s restaurant on Saturday for a friend’s 30th. The place is beautifully decorated and is very stylish. The wine list was ample and not too badly priced – I think the house white is La Petit Ferme Blanc Fume and it’s R25/glass or R100/bottle. The lunch was outstanding and the service was great.
What’s nice about it too is they have a balcony and function room which are slightly separate from the main restaurant so it’s ideal if you’re having a private party or event.
‘n Klein Genot wat jou baie geld gaan kos.
So, they charge R20 per tasting per wine. What? Yes, R20 per wine that you taste. (and no, it’s not a full glass)
I asked the lady with the Mickey Mouse jersey if the wine is made out of gold or something. NO.They have 4 red wines on tasting. The one wine was R138 a bottle and the other 3 wines were R68 a bottle. So instead of spending R80 per person per tasting (we were 2 people = R160) I can rather buy 2 bottles x R68 = R140. The tasting fee is also not refundable on purchase. Needless to say that we did not taste or purchase anything.
They have a restaurant upstairs that looked very posh. I wonder what a glass of wine will cost you there, maybe R80? They obviously try to target the clueless overseas visitors or the super rich. No problem I guess, but then you must act super stylish in all aspects of your business and not allow your staff to dress up in Disneyland-character jerseys. A complete RIP OFF!
