When you think of a wine farm in Stellenbosch, you think of vineyards that stretch over many square-miles, clear blue skies and baskets filled with grapes which will be turned into beautiful wines, but the Eikendal wine farm has more than just that to offer.
The wine farm is easily accessible and offers something special to usher in Spring. Conventional tasting is flung out the window as their restaurant offers freshly made pizza for you to pair your wine with.
The elegant Reserve Merlot 2015 pairs beautifully with the Mac Mac: a combination of chorizo, olives, feta and avocado. The spicy Mexicana bolognaise, green pepper and chili pizza enhances the full, plump berry nuances of the beguiling Charisma 2015 – a unique blend of Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Sangiovese.
The award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 completes the offering alongside a brie, rocket, cranberry and crispy bacon Sapore pizza.
Apart from the pizza and wine pairing, visitors can enjoy an exclusive tasting of the estate’s Icon range, cookie tasting for the young ones, cellar tours, fly fishing, cheetah encounters, vineyard rides and a popular kids play area.
This pizza and wine pairing experience is on offer Tuesdays to Sundays between 12:00 and 16:00 until the 30th of September at R60 per person. To book or for queries contact Chantal-Lee at 021 855 1422.
