Touring the Western Cape
Stellenbosch with Ellie – visited 3 wineries in the Stellenbosch area.
First stop was Kanonkop Wine Estate. Most well known for their blend of Pinotage, Cab Sav, Merlot, and Cab Franc called Kadette.
Stop #2 at Rickety Bridge. My favorite was the Foundation Stone, a blend of Shiraz, Tannat, Mourvedre, Cinsaut, and Granache.
A brief visit to the town of Stellenbosch followed. Our third winery of the day was the Waterford Estate for paired chocolate & wine tasting.
We rounded off the day with a trip to a friend’s gym (Ballistix CrossFit) in Somerset West and a modified Fight Gone Bad. Now in hindsight, FGB after wine tasting might not have been the best idea. But it seemed like a brilliant plan when we made it. J
The braai that followed the workout was a much needed reprieve. Besides, dinner and drinks with a great bunch of people makes pretty much anything worth while.
