Ventures now include a deli, pork specialist butchery, bistro, events venue and Stellies Taproom, organic vineyard farming and boutique wine production, seasonal cut flowers, herbs and vegetables. At Joostenberg they passionately believe in producing and sourcing great quality, authentic products and supplying them directly to the public, right there on the farm.

There are two parts to the business. Joostenberg Wine Estate is the working farm comprising of our vineyards, boutique winery, flowers, herbs and vegetables as well as the free range cattle herd. The Kraal Restaurant can also be found on the estate.

Head chef Garth Bedford draws inspiration from traditional French bistro cuisine and strives to recreate the essence of simple, good food in everything that he and his team prepare. Seasonal menus feature hearty, robust dishes made from scratch, using regional farm produce.

Typical dishes include a charcuterie plate, herb-crusted pork loin with pickled vegetables and cabbage salad, nage of cape linefish with white wine, onion, garlic and peppercorn poached vegetables and delicious chocolate and almond flourless cake or crème caramel for dessert. The atmosphere is relaxed and family friendly with a cosy fireplace in winter and a vine-shaded stoep overlooking the gardens to be enjoyed, in the summer.
