About
South African roots. Worldwide acclaim. Gary and Kathy Jordan have been making world-class wines since 1993 on a farm with a history going back over 300 years. Gary's parents, Ted and Sheelagh, bought the 146-hectare Stellenbosch property in 1982, and embarked on an extensive replanting programme, specializing in classic varieties suited to the different soils and slopes. From the Jordan hillside vineyards one has spectacular panoramic views of Table Mountain, False Bay and Stellenbosch.

    An enjoyable experience
    We had the dinner bed and breakfast package but the meals are outsourced so they are part of a separate review. The luxury suite lived up to its title. The room was very comfortable if a little quirky with a woodburner in the bathroom! Well located within 150m walk from the winery and restaurant. The package included wine tasting plus a bottle of wine in the room. My only "complaint" was that the Chameleon range of wines was not available for tasting or for selection in the room. This doesn't make sense to me as the Chameleon wines are the winery's best sellers, are made for early drinking and are reasonably priced. Overall an enjoyable experience.
    Thank you for the feedback. We are so pleased to hear you had a wonderful stay in one of our Luxury Suites. We made a decision to focus and place more attention on our Estate range of wines and to offer them for tasting at The Cellar Door, along with our Reserve range, to encourage our visitors to try our premium wines and discover and understand the different varietals we have on offer. Our followers know and understand the Chameleon range, that giving them an opportunity to taste through our more premium selection has been rewarding. The Chameleon range is still available for purchase from The Cellar Door. Keep an eye out for some new and exciting offerings coming in this range. We look forward to seeing you back at Jordan soon.

    Need to fill in on Details
    Pricey Suites that lack on follow through service. Beautifully appointed rooms and certainly spacious. Incredible views and clean. Let down was housekeeping who seemed to have “budgeted” on insufficient water, no firewood refill and not cleaning the bathroom floor. No turn down service(one would expect this service given the tariff) and lights not switched on when arriving after dinner to a pitch black room. The Bakery cuisine is almost an afterthought with a poorly designed menu that disappoints. Service staff answer simple requests with negativity instead of flexibility which needs addressing. Wine tasting is a rowdy affair with little emphasis on experiencing the beautiful Jordan collection, but rather appeasing waitering staff pouring liberal amounts of wine for loud, unruly guests. Really disappointing... We cancelled our dinner reservation at the Jordan restaurant as the menu is too similar to Jardin’s in Stellenbosch city? The Mobile Spa experience was average and also lacking. Would we return? Based on price vs caring, additional attention to service...no.
    Thank you for staying with us and for your review. Please could you send us your contact details to events@jordanwines.com as we would like to find out more about your stay, Thank you.

    We’ve done dozens of tastings but not many better than this. Out door tasting in a beautiful setting doesn’t get any better than this. K did a great job and the wines were absolutely fabulous.
    Thanks for the fantastic review! We hope to welcome you again soon. All the best The team at Jordan

I've been visiting Jordan and drinking their wines for 15+ years now, so it pains me to write this, but the treatment we received on our last visit was shockingly poor. Their advertised tasting room hours are to 4.30pm. We arrived shortly after 4 for a tasting, but there were no staff at the tasting room. After a few minutes a guy said he would fetch someone and promptly disappeared again! Eventually the tasting room host appeared at 4.18 and told it was too late as the accounting ladies were cashing up for a 4.30 finish (they were already leaving from when they arrived though). We had checked the timings before we arrived and knew we had time for a tasting (we know their wines well, it would have been quick) and a purchase. It was a really disappointing experience and not the type of service I've come to expect from Jordan. Hopefully just a blip, but there are so many other fabulous wine farms appreciative of my business that I will just support them instead.

Worst experience at a wine estate restaurant. Waiter took hours to bring cold coffee and stale bread . We were not allowed to order anything else, but the table behind us could order a platter with cheeses (arrived 5 minutes after us).

We saved the best until last this day and we’re absolutely wowed by the beautiful views that accompanied the lunch setting. Granted we opted for casual dining and had a Gaston with lunch but it felt a lot more luxurious. Our server Lloyd was very knowledgable and took the time to explain the wines, the history and wines in depth. We tried the premium bottles and took a few away with us. What a glorious place and venue. I would return in a heartbeat.

I always dreamt of having a picnic in a vineyard.

The setting is idyllic with the pods close to a lake and in the shade with great views. The food is uniquely presented and the quality is 10 out of 10 with meats, cheese, hummus etc.

It is like you are on a movie set looking out onto the vineyards with the smell of flowers and to be able to relax on the lawn is a thoroughly unique experience. A young man called “Prayer” looked after us, and he provided us with excellent and friendly service.

Thanks to all the excellent team, my dream became a reality !

A fantastic place for lunch. The restaurant sits elevated over the gardens, lake and vineyards with the magnificent backdrop of the mountains beyond. Service was first class and the food and wine excellent. The honey and poppy seed soufflé is in a class of it own and worth the airfare alone. Whip to stiff peaks! Absolutely.

We went to Jordan for my dad’s birthday and had such an amazing stay!!

The team at Jordan was absolutely excellent and we received the most fantastic service and treatment throughout!

Melanie, at reservations, made the booking experience so simple for us, which ensured that our stay was perfect!

Madie, at reception, was also wonderful and always assisted us so efficiently!

Belinda, at the Cellar Door, was amazing, from arranging our dinner baskets (which were unbelievable!) with wine, to ensuring that we had a cozy spot to sit with our baby for the Valentine's Eve concert! She also gave us some great tips on "hidden gem" wine farms to visit.

The restaurant managers and waiters (especially Nono and another lady who served as at breakfast and whose name I unfortunately did not get), we're just as friendly and efficient.

Nothing was ever too much to ask and everyone helped us with a smile! My mom even commented that we were being treated like royalty.

My dad’s birthday dinner at Jordan Restaurant was an absolute highlight!

We really loved every second of our stay and are already planning on going back again next year for my dad's birthday :)

I first visited Jordan with my extended family from the UK on Christmas Day in 2018 and the experience and food were nothing short of outstanding. I followed them on Instagram and throughout COViD I kept promising myself I would go back as soon as I had a chance. Today was the day…….my word the place, ambiance and food have got even better, which I honestly thought impossible. The service, the outlook, the food, the wine………when I have my last day on the planet (which hopefully is decade’s away), I want to spend it here. This place is nothing short of world class. Take a bow Jordan, you are a very very special place 👏

We booked a picnic at Jordan for Christmas day in one of their pods. It was such a great experience! We have a 2 year old and he could happily play all around us while we feasted on a delicious picnic basket. It’s good value for money and we were stuffed to the brim with yummy food! Definitely will recommend this!

Stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved our experience. The rooms are gorgeous. The entire winery is brilliantly kept. All of the staff were so helpful and really ensured we had a wonderful stay - Vernon was really excellent. Jordan is making some of the best wines in South Africa and getting to stay on property allowed our family to further fall in love with their wines and their culture. It is a must stay if you’re in the are. Breakfast was delicious - service was slow but we were in no rush.

Visiting from Canada, a friend told us that a visit to Jordan was a must. We are so thankful he insisted we stopped as we would have otherwise missed this piece of perfection, a real heaven on earth. My husband and I stayed for a few evenings and found ourselves completely enamored with our surroundings. The property is incredible, food delicious and the wine is being sent home by the caseload. The staff were welcoming and happy to assist us with anything we needed. The accommodations were well-appointed, spotless and extremely comfortable. We dined at The Bakery, had platters in our room and enjoyed the restaurant too. The view from the outdoor tasting area is spectacular; I never wanted to leave. Keep up the wonderful hospitality and wine-making, Jordan! We will be back.
