Making our way back towards Somerset West, we stopped at Rustenberg Wines in Stellenbosch. Another spot hubby and I have visited before but wanted to show Terry and Paola ..
When hubby and I visited last time, we had mainly reds … this time it was mainly whites .. a little disappointing, as we are all red wine drinkers .. in general 😉
Seems like Paola wants to fly too 🙂 !!!!! I told her how beautiful the gardens were and she couldn’t resist having a peek and take a few photographs. There were a few drops of rain (from a small cloud above!) … hence the run to get back into the car !!! Gardens are beyond the small white wall on the left
Waterford Wine Estate – one of our favourite wineries …
An orchard of orange trees in front of the winery
Beautiful stone arched entrance ..
It was quite busy with many tables reserved, but we managed to get one under the trees – this isn’t it !! ours was next to this reserved spot ..
There we are .. under the beige umbrella next to the table with the white table cloth on the left ..
I loved the décor …
Love the ball vases .. I want one !
Let the wine tasting begin! Love their wines! Three wines were paired with chocolate
Connor, our sommelier, was a jolly fellow !!!
This was the best!!!! He served it from a carafe
Ahhh my poor brother … under arrest! Noooo .. he had pulled his back was giving it a goooood stretch before driving home !!
This would be interesting .. a safari around the Estate …
Drove back to the hotel for a quick snooze … and a quick pic of a glorious evening sky over the mountain from our window …
… then freshen up and out for dinner at the Harbour House, Kalk Bay …. highly recommend !! This time I didn’t fall asleep at the table !!!! … (and there we are drinking white wine 😉 .. well, it was fish!! )
My delicious dinner ….
The next day we flew home in the early afternoon, not before scooting around Cape Town showing Paola just a small part … there’s lots to see … they’ll have to come back 😉
