Eikehof Wine Estate, Franschhoek. Wine Tasting, Weddings and Functions at Eikehof Wine Estate in Franschhoek

Nestled in the shade of lush green old oak trees alongside the R45 , our family owned Winery is situated to the west of the Village in the vicinity of la Motte. This hidden gem has belonged to the Malherbe family since 1903. Today, 112 years later, Francois Malherbe is the 4th generation of winemakers to make wines in the very cellar that his great-grandfather did.
The farm takes its name, Eikehof, from the wonderful Old Oaks which are characteristic of the farm and the Cape Winelands Area
Eikehof has 6 varietals which include a Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot, Shiraz and a Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyards stretch over a 23 hectare piece of land and peach orchards can also be found on the farm. The Eikehof wines are from the Franschhoek origin designation. The Eikehof wines are made from the finest grapes.. This farm is renowned for having the oldest block of Semillon bush vines in South Africa dating back to 1902.

“ Eikehof has always been part of my roots. As a young boy I grew up amongst these oak trees and astonishing views of the vineyards and mountains. My love for wine making goes far beyond a career, but a passion for working amongst nature’s beauty. Our farm is based on a simplistic lifestyle and our wines are produced to deliver the finest quality. We love to share our passion with our guests and the team at Eikehof invites you to come and enjoy the relaxed and intimate atmosphere over a glass of our distinctive wines.
