This was our first winery on our tour of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Our guide Terrance Andipatin had set us up well to know what to expect by explaining the grape varieties, the climate etc but it was a wonderful surprise when our group arrived at the winery to be met by a lovely young lady who conducted a gastronomic experience like no other we had ever undertaken. Set on the table was a beautiful set of spoons with a different chocolate on each. The chocolates were paired with a wine. OMG - how good were they together. When you think of chocolate, you don't necessarily think wine. When you think wine you are most likely to think of cheese. Don't be too timid. The chocolates we tasted were delicate and full of flavour like geranium and cherry and they complimented the wine brilliantly. To nose and taste the wine, then have smooth chocolate on your tongue made for a sensational combination. We highly recommend this taste test when you are touring the Lanzerac Manor Winery. Do check first to see if bookings are required. As our trip had been organised prior to our arrival, I am not sure how it really works. Or you could contact Terrance at andipatin@mweb.co.za to organise for you. He is a sensational and incredibly knowledgeable guide.
