Following the Stellenbosch-Kloof Road on route to Jordan Wine Estate you pass by scenic views of what the Winelands are about, vineyards in striking shades of green.
Over the weekend I felt like a well-made breakfast accompanied with a picture-perfect view, the bakery @ Jordan appeared to be the perfect spot.
Perusing the breakfast menu, I had to choose a crowd pleaser; the Bakery Benedict – streaky bacon, wilted spinach, two poached eggs, hollandaise sauce on top of their homemade sourdough bread. Oh, and of course coffee.
While enjoying my breakfast under the shade of trees I had a lovely view over the green widespread lawn and dam, if you had a stressful week this will definitely help you to unwind. An extra surprise was hearing the call of a fish eagle.
If you prefer to pop in for lunch there are quite a few good options.
If you are looking for something special there are picnic pods available for booking, and the setting that I saw looked like it could be a lot of fun.
After breakfast I felt like there was time for a quick wine tasting. Jordan wines will not disappoint, I think I have found my perfect wine for this summer, Jordan’s 2018 “Cold Fact Sauvignon Blanc”. I am not a sommelier, but I would describe this white wine as a crisp easy drinking wine that I would enjoy om a summers day.
Jordan is also building a separate deck with the same view as the bakery so you will soon be able to enjoy your wine tasting with the same picture-perfect view as you would have with your meal.
As one of the wine ranges are called the “Chameleon Range” I quite enjoyed it when I found a little chameleon on one of the trees, this was the perfect ending to my visit at Jordan.
When you come to The Bakery @ Jordan what you are looking for is a relaxing atmosphere accompanied, scenic views, wholesome food and fantastic wine.
There is however another fine dining restaurant on the estate that I have been to a few times and I will definitely do a separate post about the restaurant as this is one of my absolute favourite restaurants.
