This is such a gem of a place on the R304 towards Paarl from Stellenbosch. We have been to Joostenberg a few times and never have I been disappointed. The food is delish, there is ample space for the kids to run free, plus beer for dad from the Stellenbosch Brewing Company. The deli is filled with gorgeous treats from everyday neccessities to that specific something for a special occasion. Fresh cut flowers, Joostenberg wines at cellar door prices and a selection of delicious home cooked meals, ice creams and desserts. Browse through their range of dips, salad dressings and mayonnaises, all prepared in the kitchen right on the farm.
As a 5th generation family run business, it is clear in the detail and effort that is placed on every aspect of Joostenberg. I love the wide open spaces where kids can run free. I love the yummy food and the fact that there is so much on offer here!
There are two parts to the business. Joostenberg is the working farm comprising of the vineyards, boutique winery, flowers, herbs and vegetables as well as the free range cattle herd. Klein Joostenberg is the retail outlet and houses the deli, cellar door wine sales, butchery, bistro and a modern events venue.
You definitely won't be disappointed on your visit to Joostenberg. Whether a quick bite to eat while the kids enjoy the outdoors, or whether you spend the day on the grass under the trees...its a perfect little Mommy spot!
