Visit the wine estate of Eikehof to find out about the fermentation process and taste Africa's finest wines. This family business, nestled in the shade of the oak forest along the main road from which it gained its name, is more than a century old. See the oldest block of Semillon bush vines in South Africa, which date back to 1902. Plan a short visit, or organize a wedding, birthday celebration, or a corporate party at a specially designated venue under the oak trees.

  • What an amazing little gem of a place.. wine is amazing.. the owner and his wife is truly most heartwarming people. This is the wine tasting to enjoy if you want to have a great time with family and friends. Will always recommend Eikehof Wines.
  • Great smaller winery. We had a great time, the young gentleman who talked us through the wines was great fun and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend for a more personal experience.
  • Such a lovely homey feel!! Loved every minute, from the wine tasting to interacting with the owners and the staff. Really a home away from home.
  • Absolutely incredible. Of all the vineyards in Franschhoek, we liked this one the best. The family members were the hosts for the tasting, and the bottles were easily the tastiest and most affordable of any vineyard in Franschhoek. It's an unassuming building from the outside (used to be a horse stable), but when you go in, the views are amazing. They also have various animals on the property to see. We spent 2 hours here while on the wine tram tour and highly recommend it.
  • Best wine farm in Franschoek and best wines. Delicious platters. Very good wine tasting venue with beautiful views. Owners very friendly and always assist with wine tasting. Highly recommended.
