This is a nice winery. There is a lovely grass area and children’s playground outside.
The tasting room is nicely sized and welcoming on the inside.
There is an outdoor patio just outside the tasting room with tables and chairs where you are also welcome to do your wine tasting.
From this patio you look out on to a pond with plenty of lawn surrounding it where you can enjoy a gourmet picnic. They have set up the lawn with bean bags, picnic blankets and umbrellas.
At this winery they have 6 wines for tasting. These include the Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc 2010 (R95), Chardonnay 2010 (R135), The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 (R60), ‘Old Bush Vines’ Pinotage 2009 (R95), Three Cape Ladies 2009 (R115) Trilogy 2008 (R250). They have other wines for sale but not for tasting.
I thought the Professor Black Sauvignon Blanc 2010 was very fruity with a nice lime flavour to it, it’s also very smooth. The Chardonnay was creamy, nice and didn’t have a wooded/oaked taste to it. My friend usually doesn’t try Chardonnay’s let alone drink them, but she also felt this was a really nice Chardonnay and one that she would actually enjoy drinking a bottle of. The First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon was a little spicy, dry and had hints of tobacco. ‘Old Bush Vines’ Pinotage had great fruity flavours but a chalky aftertaste. The Three Cape Ladies is a blend of Pinotage, Shiraz and Cab Sauv. This wine is elegant, yet has a slightly chalky aftertaste, and has dark chocolate and pepper tones.
Our experience here was really nice. I would love to get our group of friends together one day and enjoy a picnic on the lawn, it would be a really nice way to spend a nice sunny afternoon!!
