South Africa Wine Country

Our compressed wine country tour started at Dornier Winery in Stellenbosch. They had a beautiful terrace looking out over the mountain and a choice of 5 wines for 30 Rand (about $4). It was a completely pleasant experience.

After that, we headed back to Stellenrust Winery, which hadn’t opened when we arrived at 930 (10 AM start). The ambiance wasn’t quite as awe inspiring, but the wines were fantastic. We bought a case and a half between the four of us of Simplicity, the rose, and the 1st white on the *free* tasting. At around $4 a bottle, I wish we had more space in the luggage or more time here to drink.

The vineyard owner came over and shared some of his private reserve sparkling wine with us. He was delicious, the wine was delicious…all in all it was a fantastic experience. It’s where the SATC girls would go if they had a clue how to spend money sensibly.

My only edit would be to start at Stellenrust then have lunch at Dornier. If you’re in Cape Town, it’s worth the trip. If you aren’t in Cape Town, why aren’t you?
