Paarl is named after the Pearl Rock or Pearl Mountain.

We stopped here on the Wine Tram wine-tasting tour. Everything was very elegant. We sat outside with the backdrop of some beautiful mountains. We loved the white wines and Rose, but not so keen on the reds. Well worth stopping for lunch.

Just an amazing place and great hospitality. We made a wine Degustation that has resulted to be the best in South Africa so fare. A 22y young Nicole has managed to dive with us into the South African wine paradise. Accomplished with a charming, professional and elegant presentation of the Winery and the location.
