A contemporary getaway into the country just down the road from JC Le Roux on the Devon Valley Road in Stellenbosch.

There is plenty of parking and the walk to the restaurant is not far (wheelchair friendly). Although reservations are recommended, the restaurant does have plenty of tables as well as a waiting area which overlooks…

De Grendel – Durbanville

Today I visited De Grendel wine farm in Durbanville. The wine tasting room has fantastic decor which is warm and welcoming however getting here is quite an unusual experience. Prepared to get your drivers license and tax disk scanned! I must say that I didn’t like that.    De Grendel prides themselves on their Shiraz 2014.

Along Bottelary road towards Stellenbosch on the right you will find the Hartenberg wine estate. As you leave the M23 onto the property the extended driveway to the estate is very long and takes you deep into the countryside. (tarred all the way). A relaxed lunch on a Thursday was the order of the day.  Friendly staff met us at the entrance to the restaurant and Andrew showed us to a lovely table under some reddish coloured vines. Very pretty surrounds for an outdoor lunch experience. As it was 12h30…
