Mighty fine wine and dine
Vergelegen Estate offers wine tasting, amazing lunches at the restaurant and plenty of space for children to explore all day. It is a historically important estate, with an interesting museum, library and perfectly kept gardens.
Waterkloof Wines is all about tasting the wine as well as the stunning views of the mountain, vineyard and Gordon’s Bay all in concert. The interesting architecture of the building adds to the pleasant experience of keeping warm around the fire pit in the tasting area or soaking in the sun out on the deck.
Flagstone Winery offers well-priced wines in a natural setting of flamingos and other water-birds gliding on the nearby lake. Why not give it a try?
Lourensford Wine Estate overlooks the Helderberg Mountains. Excellent customer service, a cosy fireplace, comfortable chairs and an outdoor area for warmer days make this spot a local favourite. Take a hike, browse the markets, grab a lunch at the restaurant or just have a refreshing drink at the coffee house for more fun.
