A beautiful spot with an amazing red wine cellar! You should go see it if possible. The chenin blanc and the dessert wine was really good. We even bought the last one to take all the way home with us.

This is the second last stop on the purple line and it’s well worth doing! I’d say it’s the most picturesque winery we saw during the whole day. The tasting is outside on a beautiful deck with the most magnificent views over not only the...More
