My last day in Cape Town was spent taking a wine tour of three wineries located in the Stellenbosch & Franschhoek regions. It was the only rainy day of my four days in Cape Town so I couldn’t complain! I don’t remember the name of the first winery….but isn’t it beautiful?
There was a small group of about 11 of us on the tour. We tried a variety of wines to include Pinotage, which is a red wine blend of Pinot Noir and Hermitage. Chardonnay is my wine of choice, but I really enjoyed the Pinotage. The South African Rand (their money) is around 7 Rand to $1 U.S. Wine was quite affordable…usually around $5-$8 a bottle for a nice wine.
A break in the rain afforded this nice view of the area surrounding one of the wineries!
Cheers or “Gesondheid” — pronounced Ge-sund-hate in Africaans!
My camera has a drawing function…I was a little fidgety!
I know two of the wineries were called Rickety Bridges and Laborie. They were all beautiful!
We stopped in the quaint town of Stellenbosch…
This piece of art was quite unique. It seemed to be made out of a mixture of dirt, rock, straw and a few other substances.
I had a very nice day tasting wine, meeting new people, and seeing the landscape in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek!
