Stellenbosch Wine Routes
In 1999, brothers Tyrrel and Philip Myburgh, the 5th generation of Myburghs to farm the property, resumed the winemaking tradition. Today Joostenberg is a small, family-owned and managed wine farm producing an exclusive range of wine. It lists varieties of special importance as its Chenin Blanc and Syrah (Shiraz) grapes. Special emphasis is placed on individuality, natural winemaking and environmental accountability through organic farming — full organic status was achieved in 2012. Joostenberg wines are available locally and abroad, and part of an enterprise that's also home to a variety of eateries, deli, butchery, craft brewery and farm accommodation.
White and Dessert Wines
Chenin Blanc, Muscat d’Alexandrie, Viognier, White Blend
Joostenberg guest accommodation is situated on a wine farm in Muldersvlei, 20km outside the towns Stellenbosch and Paarl. The standard room is ideal overnight accommodation if you are attending a wedding in the area, or you can choose to make one of the guestroom suites your base from which you can explore the Cape winelands and surrounds.
We have three guest accommodations to sleep up to eight guests in total. Each unit has its own entrance.
The Kraal Restaurant is a secluded place, situated in a shaded, stone courtyard at Joostenberg Wine Estate. It’s part of the old family farm, where we grew up, and where we still have lots of get-togethers and celebrations. Slow Sunday lunches and First Friday Suppers are served at wooden tables, set outside in between fruit trees and wild olives, next to the farm werf and garden.
Menus change every week. Muldersvlei and the surrounding area is traditionally a mixed farming area. We are lucky to have access to a wide variety of interesting fresh produce on our doorstep. We support local farmers and producers as much as possible and also use seasonal veggies and fruit from the farm garden. Our menus are guided by what is delicious, seasonal and growing in our area. It’s all about local flavours, our childhood food memories, influences from places we’ve been to and the people who’ve been, and are, important to us.
Tyrrel Myburgh and his team farm organically and make magic in the winery and vineyards. The full range of Joostenberg wines, including some rare bottles from the small batch collection and specially kept older vintages, are on offer. The tasting room is open from 11h – 15h every Sunday.
New menus are shared on social media platforms on a weekly basis.
Booking is essential as we cook just for the number of people who have booked, and space is limited.
