There are several good reasons to make a special trip to this winery, not least that its sauvignon, pinot noir and shiraz regularly win major awards. The most obvious, however, hits you as soon as you walk through the restaurant and onto the sunbaked lawn, with its extraordinary view out over the beautiful valley of Franschhoek. Take a tour with the vineyard’s owner, John, who will narrate the story of the farm (it burned down in 1984) and his relationship with the vines. Then settle down on the lawn, sip a glass of wine, and thank the lucky stars that brought you here.
Delicious Lunch in South Africa's Wine Country
Just outside of Cape Town, there are several wine-producing areas set among beautiful mountains and greenery. In Franschhoek we stopped to eat at Le Petit Ferme. We sampled the Snoek pâté with a dry and refreshing rosé. I had the pork belly while my partner had the rare kudu. The wine, food, service, and views were all spectacular and very reasonable for what you get. And did I mention the views?
