A must see in Capetown. After visting the wineries at Stellenbosch, we swung by this in city winery where they were processing the recently harvested grapes. It is located in a recently completed condominium/retail project. It is run by a transplanted Frenchman, Mr. Ridon who has been living and making wine in the Capetown area for over ten years. We...
