    Wonderful Family Vineyard
    We had a great visit to Eikehof. The wines are of excellent quality and the family owners are very friendly and great conversationalists. We enjoyed learning of the long family history of making wine and learning about each varietals story. The also serve various different options of cheese and charcuterie boards which we also enjoyed with the wine. I would highly recommend Eikehof, do not let the size fool you, they make great wines and speaking directly to the family owners is a welcomed change from the bigger, commercial wineries.

    Extra Day in South Africa

    Small, family-owned winery.
    A nice, family owned winefarm in a sea of what feel like large winefarms. Personal attention and lovely wines. Worth the stop. Nice views out the back of the tasting room

    Wonderful family owned and run winery!!
    Wonderful family-owned and run winery (now in 4th generation). Meet the actual owners. We were welcomed by the husband and wife team who gave us a welcome taste. We then did a 4 wine taste with a large meat, fruit, and cheese tray. Everything was wonderful. This was the only winery where we bought wines to take home with us. Highly recommend it for a small, family-owned winery experience!

    Best Small Wine Farm
    Lovely welcome to this fantastic small family wine farm. All the staff were very welcoming especially Caleb. Choose the wine tasting and cheese and fruit platter which was so good! We asked where the cheese was made so that’s tomorrow’s day out sorted. The wines were all really good. Bought 6 bottles and some fresh peaches for breakfast. We will visit again for some wine and that cheese and fruit platter. As well as the lovely cheese and wine the views were pretty spectacular too from under the shade of the oak tree.

    Not to be missed
    Great wine tasting experience in fact one of the better ones we have had in this area. Caleb? Was informative and answered all our questions. The present owner took time to speak to us and you get the passion the owners have with their fourth generation farm. We also took to some of their wines and getting some shipped back home

    Wine tasting & delicious platter, with unbeatable view
    Authentic Family owned vineyard for delicious tasting & cheese and fruit platter. Highly recommend. Owners take time and obviously pride in detailing their delicious wines. Their staff too are without doubt excellent-informed, friendly and welcoming. We left having bought semillion wine, a leather bag, and an amazing smelling bunch of fresh eucalyptus! Superb experience. Don’t miss out.

    Perfect Stop in Stellenbosch
    My wife and I had this as a stop for the Wine Tram stop back in September, and we highly recommend making it a part of your time in Stellenbosch! The property is beautiful and the wines were great, but our favorite part of our stop here was definitely Anunwa, who was not only knowledgeable about the wines, but took the time to talk to us about our travels and where we're from. We loved chatting with him about the NFL!! We will definitely be ordering some of their wines and shipping them back to the US, and look forward to catching up with Anunwa next time we are in South Africa!

    A winery with a difference
    What a different experience. Warm and friendly in the approach to wine tasting with owners and staff who are committed to the love of their wines. A smaller operation that really has that personal touch. We asked our host Caleb to choose the wines he would recommend. He offered wines that paired so well withe the variety of meats and cheeses available to sample from their menu. Having visited a number of wineries in South Africa and other countries this will remain a favorite.

In this day and age it’s always a pleasure to come across a small business with attention to detail and traditional values… This winery has that and their wine and vineyards were a pleasure to explore and experience.
