Eikendal Wine Estate

Eikendal is an award-winning wine estate surrounded by the magnificent Helderberg mountains.
The barrel-vaulted cellar building and surrounding landscape are becoming increasingly popular for wine tasting and meals at the estate’s restaurant.
The owners asked us to develop a plan to accommodate the increased volumes of people while enhancing the site as a destination.
The main entrance and parking have been designed in keeping with the rural context of the site. Trees and vines, gabion terraces and berms have been incorporated to create smaller, sheltered car parking court that are screened from the surrounding farmlands. A more formal axial entranceway is flanked by indigenous fynbos planting and leads guests to a terraced lawn overlooking the dam.
