Hermanus … new vineyards, new wines

Copy of IMG_2592

There are quite a few new vineyards open to the public since our last visit to Hermanus two years ago.  We only went to one, surprisingly for us 🙂    We actually felt like chilling while there.   One of the reasons – I was on anti-histamines for conjunctivitis which made me sooo sleepy 😦    I would drop off to sleep anywhere !!

Rivendell is a new boutique wine farm.   New vines and young wine.  Beautiful setting and they’ve recently opened a Mediterranean bistro.   We tried the wine tasting .. Maiden Vintage sauvignon blanc, pinot noir and shiraz – we preferred the sauvignon blanc

It will be interesting to watch Rivendell grow and do another tasting in time to come .. and then we can say that we tasted their first bottling 🙂
