Can’t believe it’s more than a week since my last post !!
From our few days at Leopard Mountain, we drove home, re-packed, went out to dinner at The Carnivore, Misty Hills … slept, up early in the morning to catch our flight to Cape Town … … and hit the ground running!
First stop .. to visit my Mum at the Home in Somerset West. The airport is sort of half-way between Cape Town and Somerset West and we could only book into our hotel in Cape Town after lunch, so it made sense to start our weekend visiting the wineries in the Somerset West/Stellenbosch area, plus popping in to see my Mum.
Hubby dropped me off at the Home, which is on the way to Morgenster Estate at the foothills of the Helderberg and Hottentots-Holland mountain range. Left Terry and Paola at Morgenster and came back to fetch me. I only need a short time with her sadly, as I really don’t know if she knows I’m there. But .. I told her all about the wedding and latest family news and hung above her bed one of the little birdies I had made for the wedding (to hang on chairs at the reception) ..
The stunning setting of Morgenster Estate : … and after my visit with my Mum, some good wines went down very well !!!! Morgenster’s wines are tops !!
Grape flowers …
Let the weekend of wine tasting begin ..
I thought these were baby grapes .. but I understand they are unfertilized flowers ..
Not a fly 😉 .. but a grape flower in my wine 🙂
Next wine estate on our agenda was Vergelegen which is ‘next door’ to Morgenster
