Cape Jaffa is not the most famous place in the world but it is where Anna and Derek Hooper love to make wines - En Soleil - in the sunshine. Living on the edge - where the often harsh and unpredictable Southern Ocean meets South Australia's Limestone Coast, Anna and Des produce wines that reflect the lifestyle they lead and the region they love. Wines with natural balance and honest personality...a unique lifestyle worth bottling! Drop into their cellar door for a guided wine tasting. They also offer delicious cape platters so you can settle in for an arvo on the veranda. Open 11am - 4pm daily (open a little longer during holiday periods 10am - 5pm)

Had to return to this great winery close to Robe! Was greeted by their two dogs & great friendly service inside. Lots of options available to taste & they are also making a great craft beer so keep an eye out for that! You can also stay a while with a tasting platter to go with one of their fab... More

Every time I have visited the South East I have stopped for wine tasting at Cape Jaffa wines. This was my fifth visit and I was not disappointed. A large selection of whites and reds to try with my all time favorite La Lune Shiraz to finish off. We sat outside under the vine covered pergola and ate cheese and... More

Went to CJ cellar door with some friends for some wine tastings. Rustic building filled with character on top of a hill with stunning views. Very picturesque. The person serving us (Gabby) knew her stuff and has a great personality. The pinot gris was refreshing on this hot day and the cheese platter was superb. The brie...oozing from a beautiful... More

Thanks for the superb review Gordon! Wine always tastes better with friends so we are glad you brought yours with you. Our cellar team are a great mob and your choice of partnering some of our fantastic Pinot Gris with an 'oozing' brie on a warm day is perfect. Hope to see you and your friends again soon. More

Worth a visit if staying in Robe and wishing to try some wines. Excellent vibe in here and the wines are decent. It's only a little way off the main road and def worth the visit if you are travelling between Robe and Kingston, or indeed if you are staying in Robe.

Beautiful, rugged and relaxing location. I really enjoyed learning about the biodynamic wines that Cape Jaffa produces, as well as the taste of the grapes produced from the cooler climate at Mt Benson with limestone in the soil. The underground Barrell hall was also a cozy little area that I enjoyed exploring. Very knowledgeable staff, loved the wine, very unique... More
