Top Places To Visit 3 Spots
Protea Hotel Stellenbosch
We stayed at Protea Hotel Stellenbosch, which is centrally located between the Wine a route and City and the highlight of the Protea Hotel in Stellenbosch is the view from your bedroom window, as the hotel is elevated and surrounded by mountains. After tasting all the wines and champagne up for offer, we stopped at Asara Wine Estate and Hotel and had a delicious lunch.
Cape Winelands Home Stays
The Vineyards stretch far and wide and are a famous feature of South African landscape. Wineries are a part of the culture here and wine tasting is a heavenly experience. Most wineries allow a relaxed session of sipping wine at a decent fee. The Bilton Winery and the Boschendal estate are good places to start your wine tasting experience.
Next morning I went to the serene town of Stellenbosch. The place has some fine vineyards and I had registered for a wine tour with Wine Flies. Ian was our guide-cum-driver. And our group was really interesting, with fun-loving people from different parts of the world. Stories were shared over wine, chocolate, cheese and food. My host for the night was Eugene, who has a beautiful house there. He told about some secret trips and trails on the Garden Route over dinner.
