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.

Best way to spend a Saturday: wine tasting in the Boland. The last of the autumn leaves were still visible on the vineyards. We made ourselves comfortable on the sofas by the fireplace and enjoyed the wine tasting
