Kookfontein Wines

They’re cooking at Kookfontein, as we say in South Africa. Since before and after Kookfontein won the South African Gold Medal for Best Young Wine in the Olifants River wine region in 2012 they’ve had their finger on the pulse of what’s going on. No wonder they say that their wine improves with every harvest.

Kookfontein Wine is located on the West Coast Way Wild Route and is a small boutique vineyard. They tell the story as follows: “Kookfontein’s Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the northern bank of the Jackal Creek, near the rustic seaside town of Lamberts Bay. The vineyard overlooks the nutrient-rich kelp coast of the Atlantic Ocean, five kilometres to the west. During the summer months a cool, crisp sea breeze influences the ripening process of the grapes, ensuring the prefect growing conditions for a fine palatable white wine.” Of course, the cool climate plays a crucial role.

 Kookfontein Sauvignon Blanc has guava, passion fruit, gooseberry and a bit of green pepper on the nose; and flavours of guava, passion fruit and gooseberry on the palate. It’s the ideal accompaniment to fish dishes – you’re on the West Coast after all. Otherwise, it also pairs well with white meat, green salads, asparagus and creamy pasta. Otherwise, you could always have this wine on its own to liven up your day.

Apart from their wine Kookfontein offers accommodation in the form of self-catering farm cottages on a working farm. Kookfontein has been owned and managed by the Engelbrecht family for 6 generations, the current owners are direct descendants of the original founders. There are two cottages that are stylishly furnished – it’s modern and has a feeling of spaciousness interspersed with beautiful pieces of vintage furniture. Both cottages are fully equipped including linen and towels.

Open-plan living areas ensure that a good ole kuier will be enjoyed whether indoors or, weather permitting, outdoors in the braai area. Alternatively, make yourself at home on the stoep and contemplate life. The cottages look out over the vineyard from which their award-winning Sauvignon Blanc is made.
