Jackal Lager and Pizza at Jakkalsvlei near Herbertsdale (2019-07-05) Food and Drink | Photo Gallery 10 SEP 2019

It has turned into a nice little outing for whenever we holiday in Mossel Bay, nipping off on the quiet back roads out into the farm lands, driving past the small hamlet of Herbertsdale and then finally in the middle of nowhere, about 60 kilometers from where we first started, walking past the bronze sculpture of a jackal as you enter through the glass doors of Jakkalsvlei.

Situated at the foot of the Langeberg mountains, with its cool temperate climate, the Jakkalsvlei winery and its 34 hectare large vineyard produce a host of award winning wines, and is also home to a seemingly impossibly popular restaurant and wine tasting facility (given the remoteness of its location).

An excellent array of food, pizza and wine to be had, innovative wine tasting pairings to try, and of course, even their own craft brews to sample. Hard not to enjoy each and every visit to this tucked away little gem!

Pizza and Wine at Jakkalsvlei near Herbertsdale (2019-01-04) Photo Gallery | Travel Attractions 31 JUL 2019

Herbertsdale is a small settlement that lies east of the Gourits river, 56 km north west of Mossel Bay. Travel another 6 or so kilometers on from there, and you will stumble upon a most unexpected sight – a winery and its vineyard, better known as Jakkalsvlei.

Situated at the foot of the Langeberg mountains with its cool temperate climate, Jakkalsvlei (named after the once abundant jackals found in the area) with its 34 hectare vineyard is perfectly positioned to produce high quality mountain-grown grapes which are then turned into a host of awarding winning wines.

The site is also home to a stunning tasting room/restaurant facility which surprisingly is almost always busy – despite Jakkalsvlei being VERY much out in the middle of nowhere! (In fact, they are so busy that come the December holiday season, the team has to put up an outside tent in order to cope with the sheer volume of visitors!)

Pizza, burgers, wine and cotton candy tastings (and the occasional live music act), Jakkalsvlei is more than worth the lazy drive out to the middle of nowhere.
