Jakkalsvlei (fox valley) is a family owned boutique winery - and the Garden Route's best-kept secret. The Jonker family has been proud owners of Jakkalsvlei since 1972, and today winemaker/owner Jantjie Jonker is the third generation to farm on this, the only wine farm in the Mossel Bay area.
This unique off-the-beaten-track winery offers true Southern Cape hospitality, as well as picturesque hiking and mountain biking, and the innovative annual 'pick your own Hanepoot' event early March - a drawing card for wine lovers.
The stylish new tasting venue is set amongst the vineyards and has a deck area where white, rosé, red and dessert wines can be sipped while enjoying the breathtaking views of the nearby mountains. A huge lawn and safe play area for kids enable parents to keep an eye on youngsters while enjoying the Jakkalsvlei experience. Delicious ‘create your own’ cheese platters and pizzas are on the menu and there is a deli section with a variety of home-made rusks, jams and their very own range of olive preserves and olive oil to take back home.
Cycling and foodie events are hosted throughout the year and the stunning venue is available for weddings, corporate events and conferences (contact Klara Jordaan on 072 482 2994 or 028 735 2061).
