Welcome to Eikehof

Eikehof Wine Estate is nestled in the shade of lush green old oak trees alongside the R45, our family owned Winery is situated to the west of the Franschhoek Village in the vicinity of La Motte. This hidden gem has belonged to the Malherbe family since 1903. Today, 116 years later, Francois Malherbe is the 4th generation of winemakers to make wines in the very cellar that his great-grandfather did. The farm takes its name, Eikehof, from the wonderful Old Oaks which are characteristic of the farm and the Cape Winelands Area.
