One of the great things about Cape Town is that it’s blessed with a number of wine regions within a 100km radius, making wine tasting day trip a very attractive and relaxing option. I took a day tour to the wineries around Stellenbosch, just 50km away from the centre of Cape Town. With the jagged mountain ranges in the background, the wineries of the region were often in very scenic locations.
And with interesting side attractions – like zebras.
But I was also there to taste a bit of wine. The wine styles were generally more restrained than in Australasia, making it very nice with a bit of French-style cheese.
