This is our view for a late lunch in the winelands of the Western Cape of South Africa. Don’t you wish you were enjoying a glass of local wines with us? I think even my mom would want to be here – the restaurant is wonderful, the hotel looks first rate and the surroundings are nice and quiet and safe We chose this winery completely on a whim – we drove the 45min or so from Capetown southeast to the Stellenboch area, and then turned into the first big winery that looked like a nice spot for lunch.
