Found within the heart of the fertile Breede River Valley, is Eagles Cliff cellar, inspired by an uncommon pair of black eagles which call the cliffs over the vineyard ‘home.’ This local farm exports internationally to Europe, specifically Switzerland and Germany, and is also quite popular in their local area. Cellar Tours are done by arrangement only during the week, but if you’d like to taste some of their wonderful offerings, stop into their Eagle’s Cliff Bistro, which is open all week from 10am – 2:30pm. Their menu includes the usual hard and soft cheese platter, a cheese and meat platter, soup, and home-made farm breads. You can enjoy this with one of their unique wines.
The area boasts equally gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, making them an ideal wedding venue for brides who’d prefer an early, or late, wedding ceremony. The zebra and springboks which wander freely about make for some lovely wildlife photographs while visiting as well. Their Eagle’s Cliff Chenin Blanc 2012 received a bronze award, and their Dwyka Hills Shiraz 2012 received a silver award at the VERITAS wine awards.
