Deep into the Jonkershoek valley lies the Stark Condé wine farm. This family-run winery has probably some of the best settings and views around. Nestled between mountains, overlooking a lake – it is a favourite spot for locals and visitors alike.
Raised in Stellenbosch, Hans Schroder owns the farm, with his daughter Marie running the cafe and son-in-law Jose Condé being the cellar master.
The Tasting Room sits on the lake and offers a classic wine tasting and a premium wine tasting. The handcrafted wines on offer ranges from Cabernet Sauvignon to a Sauvignon Blanc and a Rosé.
Postcard Cafe is an absolute treat: with both seating outside and inside, it is a very popular eating destination. The cafe offers breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. For breakfast there is a range of options: from banana bread to omelettes and fruits & yogurt. Lunch is a variety of salads, pastas and meats. If you’ve got a sweet tooth, then you’re in the right place: choose from a variety of cakes, puddings and ice cream.
And don’t forget to take your complimentary postcard at the end of your meal.
Small functions can also be held at the Cafe, and there is even a cottage that can be rented for the perfect weekend getaway.
Visit Stark Condé & Postcard Cafe for a casual and relaxed experience, enjoying good food, exceptional wine and an unbeatable view.
