My parents first introduced us to Spookfontein wine estate as they live in Hermanus and love discovering local gems. Ever since then we’ve been big fans of Spookfontein’s organic red wines and always have a few stocked up in our pantry. So we were happy to hear that they have opened up an amazing tasting room in conjunction with ELL, an eatery which produces wonderful organic and ethical meals. ELL specializes in designer pizzas, salads and creative dishes with fresh local ingredients.
We took a trip out there last weekend and were so impressed. The tasting room and eatery have been beautifully designed with a clean contemporary feel with stunning views out onto the vineyards and valley below as well as the Babylonstoren mountains in the distance. We thoroughly enjoyed a lazy lunch and wine tasting in their relaxed and inviting space.
There are some really special and unique spots in the Hemel & Aarde Valley, so I’d definitely recommend you visit and do some exploring!
