We're big fans of Eikendal wines, and had to visit the estate while we were down in the Cape. One of the newer estates (established in 1981) it has a light, modern feel to it. We'll be back

Underwhelming and rushed , the sommelier clearly didn't care . Rushed the wine descriptions and couldn't wait to get us to leave .

Excellent wines that sooths the palette. Their semi-sweet wine is my wife's favourite at an excellent price. A quite and rustic atmosphere around the fountain.

We had a lovely wine tasting at Eikendal. The tasting room staff were only too happy to brings us our wine tasting at a table in the garden so we could have lunch from the restaurant next door. The wines were delicious too - this is a great place to spend an hour or two in the garden under the trees looking at the dam.

With a locally living friend we visited Eikendal on a private tour through the Stellenbosch vineyards, and did a tasting of 5 wines. The vineyard is elegant and contemporary, a little snobbish for my taste though. They couple wine with Swiss chocolates - the owners are obviously continental European. The combination wasn't quite my thing, although I admit it was an interesting experience. Am I getting old and conservative?
Eikendal can definitely offer high quality wines, and has knowledgable staff. Unfortunately in an environment which felt a little too sterile. There was no joy in it.
