While my life is being turned upside down with life changing decisions, I decided to escape it all for a day out in wine country. Now living in Cape Town, I am truly blessed not even 20 minutes away from where I live you can find the beautiful countryside of the Constantia wine valley. It feels like you transported to another country.
We started off at Buitenverwachting wine farm where the tasting is R30, and you can taste all the wines on their tasting list I think I only made it through 2 whites and 2 reds. It was a busy morning the tasting room was bubbling with people making the most of the gorgeous sunny winters afternoon.
I visited their restaurant a while back and had the best gourmet beef burger ever I will defiantly recommend going to check out this beautiful Wine estate and restaurant.
Our second stop was the Glen a wine farm on the hill I have driven past this place so many times on my way to Houtbay and always say we need to check this place out and finally the day came, and boy were we in for a treat. The place was buzzing with visors the restaurant wine tasting area was full of people, and the scenery was breathtaking.
The tasting at the Glen was more structured R40 for two whites one rose and two reds. The wine was good, and their red Flagship bottle was a winner. They also explained because of their location up on the hill they get the last sun in the Valley and the grapes are exposed to the sun longer.
Then we ended our day at Groot Constantia one of the most known wine estates in the Constantia wine valley area. It is also R40 for tastings I opted out on this one, but my friends had fun the pinotage is my favorite wine from this farm very good wine to enjoy with a great fillet steak.
I truly had a great day out soaking up the winter sun and then heading to catch the soccer after the day out. Took my mind off the future, and I enjoyed the day out exploring Cape Town with good friends.
