RESTAURANT BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL
Enjoy wine tasting a selection of our award winning Jakkalsvlei range. Our wine tasting consists of 8 wines that include red, white, Rosé as well as dessert wines (Hanepoot and Red Muscadel). We have received multiple awards from Michelangelo to SA Young Wine Awards.
During December 2014 the new state-of-the-art wine tasting venue was added and now visitors can enjoy the unique and acclaimed Jakkalsvlei wines combined with customized cheese platters and delicious build-your own pizzas. A picnic basket can be ordered from the restaurant and enjoyed on the lush, green lawns, taking in the beautiful scenery that Jakkalsvlei has to offer.
The wine tasting hall is fairly large with tables both indoors and outdoors with great views over the mountains and vineyards, making this establishment the ideal place to visit be it is sunny or rainy, and let’s face it, who doesn’t want to enjoy a glass of Jakkalsvlei Coffee Pinotage on a rainy day?
Or a sparkly, chilled La Perlé Rosé on a hot day?
Our warm Jakkalsvlei hospitality awaits you!
