The vineyards around Paarl, Franshoek and many other places are worth a visit. We drove to several of them, tasted the good wines and bought several bottles to finish in the evenings.
They are scattered around the area and you can go for a free taste, just drive up. If you like the wine, buy a bottle or two to drink them with your "braai".
To see the area out there, look at my Franshoek page.
This area is very attractive for hiking or relaxing and you can consider to stay a few days here.
When you do the Stellenbosch wine route, do not forget to include Zewenwacht. Many things to do. Children love feeding the ducks.
This wine estate forms part of the Franschhoek wine route. They have some lovely light wines which is very palatible. Another must visit on the wine route.
Stellenbosch is the most famous but there are many other wine areas in the same region. Montagu is one of the smaller communities with really Good local wine.
