Jakkalsvlei, directly translated as Jackal's Marsh, is a family owned winery nestled in the beautiful, world famous Garden Route. The Jonker family has been proud owners of Jakkalsvlei since 1972, and today it is farmed by the 3rd generation Jonkers on the farm.
Today Jakkalsvlei wines are enjoyed by people all over the Garden Route, including some fine restaurants. You can't help but fall in love with the breathtaking views and the beautiful mountain range surrounding the farm.... Come explore this unique, off the beaten track wine farm in the Garden Route and experience true Southern Cape hospitality.
The combination of the southern and northern slopes of these mountains allow for the cultivation of quality grapes. The southern slope gets the benefit of early morning sun, warm days and cool nights. Our vineyards' temperate climate and restrictive soil are key ingredients in growing high quality grapes. Jakkalsvlei has been acclaimed for yielding grapes that produce mountain-grown wines of rare depth, longevity and elegance.

Our classic Jakkalsvlei range caters for all tastes and consists of 8 wines that include red, white, rosé as well as dessert wines. 2016 was a particularly good awards year as we received 3 Michelangelo Awards ̶ one of which was a Grand d’Or for our 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon. At SA’s oldest wine show, the SA Young Wine Show, we also received a silver medal for our Red Muscadel as well as a gold for our Hanepoot.
Visitors can enjoy the unique and acclaimed Jakkalsvlei wines combined with customized cheese platters, delicious build-your own pizzas and gourmet burgers. A picnic basket can be ordered from the restaurant and enjoyed on the lush, green lawns, taking in the beautiful scenery.
Jakkalsvlei also has its own craft beer range, the Jackal Lager or Wolf Ale, which is highly recommended by costumers. Be sure to visit our new deli section with a variety of homemade rusks, jams and our very own range of olive preserves and olive oil.
