On the Road: Stellenbosch

SA’s finest!

Following on from the SA Section in Episode 5 of the podcast, here are some photos from our trip to Stellenbosch.

The above two photos and the one below are from Uva Mira, which was the first stop of the day.

After that, we stopped in at Ernie Els, followed by lunch at Guardian Peak. Ernie Els had a very impressive estate, however we preferred the wines at Guardian Peak, which also had a great restaurant.

Another farm we visited was Stark Condé, which has the tasting room on an island in the middle of a lake. We bought quite a lot of wine from here!

Tokara was a notable estate, not for the wine particularly, but for the interesting collection of art and installations in the tasting area. The clock is a favourite!
