STEEP MOUNTAINS, RICH NATURE RESERVES AND EXCEPTIONAL WINE FARMS MAKE UP THE JONKERSHOEK VALLEY, CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL IN STELLENBOSCH. HAPPILY ESTABLISHED WITHIN THIS VALLEY IS ROZENDAL, A FAMILY-OWNED ORGANIC FARM THAT PRIDES ITSELF ON ITS AWARD-WINNING VINEGAR AND UNIQUE STYLE OF HOSPITALITY.
Auberge Rozendal offers 16 en-suite rooms, each with a private patio and a view which overlooks the valley and stretches all the way to Table Mountain. Each morning, guests wind their way through the charming farm for breakfast on the Manor House terrace. Auberge Rozendal promises a romantic getaway, relaxing family holiday or peaceful retreat, leaving visitors revitalised and content. Country hospitality welcomes all guests, whether leisure travellers, business people or visiting academics.
Heritage is key in the preparation of our award-winning vinegar. Nathalie Ammann uses the traditional French Orleans method, passed down by her father. During fermentation, oak barrel-matured red wines are cultured by an indigenous ‘mother’ bacteria – from the first vinegar made on Rozendal in 1988. Organic herbs are carefully selected for their culinary and health properties and then infused, and the resulting balsamic-style vinegar is matured for up to 12 years.
Dining at Rozendal is all about savouring delectable dishes in a relaxed farm-style setting – whether on the shaded terrace during the summer months or inside by the fireplace when the cool weather sets in. Enjoy a set menu of three courses, varying from typically South African meals to European specialities. The wine list will appeal to avid explorers, as we stock non-commercial wines sourced from local, hard-to-find wineries, as well as organic wines.
Plumbago Cottage offers a self-catering option for those who prefer a more homely stay. It comfortably sleeps four, and the two bedrooms are complemented by a fully equipped kitchen, lounge with fireplace and patio, and even a sauna for deep relaxation and revitalisation.
