Today I went to Omniberg with a friend. It was a lovely day, and the vibe was great.
We started at Windmeul. There were a lot of people here, there was a live band, good food, good vibe, would recommend visiting this winery at next year’s festival.
The wine here was really good and the prices are very reasonable: 2010 Chardonnay Reserve is R47.50, their Sauvignon Blanc 2011 is R32.50 and the most expensive wine is the Cape Blend Reserve 2009 at R85.
There was not much wine to try here, only two from the barrels. We ate some very delicious pizza here, enjoyed the view and then moved on.
We visited this winery towards the end of the day. There was a live band, seating outside, and some games to be played on the large lawn. There was not much wine to try at this winery. They had a few of their wines which were not ready for bottling yet. It would have been nice if we could have tried some of their bottled wine also.
The service at this winery was really good. It probably helped that we went there towards the end of the day and we were the only two in the tasting room. The staff were very friendly and went through each wine with us.
White Pinotage (R120). I liked this wine so much!!! It is very smooth and has great flavour!! Dekker’s Valley Chenin Blanc (R40) was refreshing and nice.
At this winery we stomped on the grapes. As it was the end of the day, there wasn’t really much to stomp as it was already stomped on. So it was pretty much standing in grape juice with the skins floating at the top.
This was the last winery we visited. This winery is on the main road. There was a really great band on at the time we were there. I thoroughly enjoyed the KWV Sauvignon Blanc at R100 a bottle. That was a good find!!!
