About
South African roots. Worldwide acclaim. Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146-hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. From the Jordan hillside vineyards one has spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch.

A great surprise. There are so many great restaurants in this area and for some reason, I underestimated Jordan. It was epic. Great setting and really well run by the Head Chef. Food was outstanding and service friendly.

Wine pairing (which I don’t normally do) was very good. All in all, well worth a visit!

Ps - chef trained at the Fat Duck and this is better. Really.

Visited Jordan for a two nights stay in their lodges. Beautifully appointed with luxurious facilities. We stayed in Lodge 9, which is furthest away from the winery up an unmade dirt track. With hindsight we should have asked for a lodge nearer as we have some mobility issues.
It was only a minor inconvenience and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with attentive staff, excellent breakfasts and wine tasting.
We have also made a separate review of the Jordan Restaurant which was less successful.

If you’re considering staying here, don’t hesitate and just book! Our room, although only the classic, was absolutely stunning. Beautiful finishing touches including petals on the bed for our honeymoon. We had the dinner basket which we’d recommend if their restaurant isn’t open in the evening. Breakfast out on the deck overlooking the lake was an awesome start to the day. Staff are also very attentive and knowledgeable. The360 vineyard tour is a must.

I found myself in Cape Town for an extra two days because of a cancelled flight home. A friend in Kalk Bay recommended a visit to Jordan for the food and the view. With nothing else to do, I decided to book a night at the estate. As it turned out, my stay at Jordan was the highlight of my trip to South Africa. I arrived early, at noon, before check-in, but staff had a table set for me on their patio so that I could enjoy lunch while my room was being prepared. The view from the patio was spectacular, the food and wine were great. I walked the vineyards, which had beautiful views in all directions. I had a nearly two hour personal tour of the estate and wine making operation with incredibly knowledgeable staff, during which I learned so much. If you like good food, good wine, beautiful scenery, attentive staff, and a peaceful, relaxing setting, do yourself a favor and book a room at Jordan.

Our shark diving got cancelled so I called and was able to get booked in last minute for a wine tasting session although it would be best to book in advance if possible.
We opted for the reserve tasting, some fantastic wines. Our server/guide was great, really friendly and took us through the history of the vineyard and info about the different wines. The views of the lake to the mountains is amazing. We decided to get lunch afterwards and the food was amazing, again I'd suggest booking in advance but we got lucky and they were able to get us on of the tables outside, there were plenty inside but with the lovely weather and scenery you really want to sit outside.

Not our first time we've been to Jordan for wine tasting, but its been a few years, so it was great to go back. We were hosted by Eloise, who did a great job of explaining the different wines. The setting is wonderful, sitting on the outside deck overlooking the small dam. The wines are still impressive! We bought a few to take home, which we will definitely be enjoying.

We stayed four nights in a Superior Suite and could not recommend this accommodation more highly. Private accommodation and patio with lovely views of the vineyards beyond. Beautiful, stylish, contemporary decor and the most comfortable king size bed with luxurious Egyptian cotton linen. A fireplace with enough wood to kept us toasty as we enjoyed our complimentary bottle of Jordon Merlot, which was offered on arrival. We happened to be working during our stay. And no request was too much. An additional table and chair were placed in the suite with an extension cord for us to have more work space! (That level of attention to detail) and breakfast served in our suit to accommodate our meeting schedules. We were also given a hospitality credit that could be used against food and wine at the Cellar Door Restaurant, I assume this is because it's the Green Season. It felt extremely generous and we were spoilt. We had the pleasure of a lunch in the Jordan Restaurant, the fine dining offering, now under the management of Marthinus Ferreira. With stunning uninterrupted view of the dam and mountains beyond, it was a treat. The numerous dishes we savoured were superb and the service friendly and professional. We will certainly return to Jordan Suites, our new discovery. Special mention and thank you to Matthew, perfect customer service.

Very good place with great views of their lake. This is a good place to go eat out with a glass of wine. Their wines are above average good.. but combine that with some good views and food, it shall be well.
