Wine tasting at Peter Falke, Stellenbosch

Hubby, Kathy and I had planned to go to Vergelegen Wine Estate for another picnic the day after our relaxing one at Warwick but after a call to the wine estate, Kathy was told that picnics were cancelled as it was going to rain at 11.00 !!!!   We waited in anticipation for 11.00 and sure enough it did rain .. at precisely 11.00 !!!  But it was a drip and drop .. not enough for picnics to be cancelled.  Anyway, we decided on a plan B before the magical time of 11.00 :  wine tasting at Peter Falke in Stellenbosch  … and yes, for those who are wondering, he is the chappie who started Falke socks in South Africa, a very popular brand of sports and recreation socks!!

A simply beautiful setting (and what isn’t in this part of the Cape) with the Helderberg Mountains in the distance … (I love the giant corkscrews !)

  1. Pity you couldn’t go to iconic Vergelegen. It truly is a stunning place. Not that there is anything wrong with this one.
