I picked up of a really lovely couple from USA celebrating their 25th. Wedding anniversary at the Cape Grace Hotel on the Waterfront at 09:00. First stop was at Warwick Wine Estate in Stellenbosch were we tasted 5 of their outstanding wines. They are well known for their Bordeaux Style red blend. The outstanding presentation was done by their assistant wine maker.
Next it was onto the beautifully situated Stark-Conde Wine Estate situated in the
picturesque Jonkershoek Valley well known for its Cabernet Sauvignon
Next stop was La Motte in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley for another five wine tastings. They are well known for their Pierneef Syrah Viognier. Lunch was at the Pierneef a La Motte. What a treat! Food was fantastic, service perfect and the wines just fantastic.
Last stop of the day was at Maison for the last of our six wine tastings. Their restaurant, The Kitchen, has just been voted in the top ten in South Africa.
It was then back to The Cape Grace with a stop at the Nelson Mandela Statue
at the Groot Drakenstein Prison.
