Visiting Jordan Wine Estate Stellenbosch

Hi guys! How’s it being ‘back at school’? A few weeks ago I arrived in South Africa and it seems like yesterday, time is flying!

Friendly-Madrid-Jordan-vineyard

We’re exploring new places around Cape Town, and on one of our trips out, we visited Stellenbosch and the JORDAN winery.

Friendly-Madrid-Travels

A beautiful place where you can stay in a cozy hotel and enjoy breathtaking views across the valley. 

JORDAN-HOTEL

The winery organizes visits of its cellars and you can do a tastings for a reasonable price, which is waived if you purchase bottles at the shop. 

Jordan-bodega

We suggest that visit during the morning, from Cape Town it takes approximately 40 minutes depending on traffic, and do a drive around the countryside, do a wine tasting and visit the vineyards. Afterwards, have lunch in one of the restaurants at the winery. Here are our recommendations:

If you visit South Africa definitely try to visit this winery, one of our top recommendations for activities around Cape Town.

Have a great week.
