Family-owned Jordan Wine Estate, situated in Stellenbosch, South Africa, the heart of the Cape Winelands, has been transformed to become one of the leading estates in South Africa.

Featuring a wine tasting centre, luxury accommodation, a delicatessen-style bakery and a world-class restaurant where visitors can relax and enjoy fine Cape wines and local Cape fare surrounded by breathtaking views of the vineyards. Jordan Wine Estate boasts spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and the Stellenbosch Mountains.

Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making award-winning wines since 1993 on their now 164 hectare hillside property with a grape growing history going back over 330 years.

Unique by nature’s design, the Jordan slopes face North (where Cabernet Sauvignon excels), South (where Sauvignon Blanc competes with the best in the world), East (where Chardonnay produces Burgundian-like white wines) and West (where the Syrah vineyards enjoy the afternoon sun and gravelly soils). The ancient soils have evolved from 600 million year old Cape granite and range from deep, well-drained clay-loam to gravelly and sandy soils situated on clay. 

Tucked away close to the winery, restaurant and bakery, the new luxury suites on Jordan Wine Estate enjoy beautiful panoramic views of the vineyards and Stellenbosch Mountains. Each suite has spacious interiors that are individually designed and uniquely decorated, making the Jordan Luxury Suites an ideal choice for a unique Winelands getaway.

Situated 25 minutes from Cape Town International airport and 10 minutes from Stellenbosch, Jordan is a working wine estate that has been transformed to become one of the leading estates in South Africa.

Facilities and services include free Wi-Fi, Egyptian cotton linen, Nespresso coffee machine, room safe, air conditioning, HD LED TV with DSTV satellite options, mini-fridge, hairdryer, en-suite bathroom and a veranda with outdoor furniture, the perfect place to sit and enjoy your complimentary bottle of Jordan Estate wine. Most units have a large, luxurious, free-standing bath in addition to a walk-in shower, king-sized bed, fireplace and separate lounge. This and many more indulgent amenities await the weary traveller.

Enjoy breakfast or an ‘alfresco’ lunch at The Bakery at Jordan followed by a bespoke 360 ° tour of the Jordan vineyards and wine cellar. Lunch or dinner at the Jordan Restaurant is an unforgettable experience where Chef George Jardine’s seasonal menu captivates one with outstanding flavours, textures and techniques.
